Recreational injury claims

Recreational and sporting activities result in thousands of injuries each year and in many cases the injured person is the author of his own misfortune or, in the case of sports injuries, the accident has to be accepted as simply part of the game.

However this does not mean that situations do not arise where injury is caused by a third party giving rise to a possible claim for compensation.

Examples would be negligent, reckless or violent conduct by an opponent, inadequate supervision, defective or unsafe equipment, facilities, premises or playing sufaces.

Obviously the consequences of a recreational injury can be as serious as any other accident in terms of pain and suffering, loss of earnings, permanent disability etc. and a duty of a care exists in sports or recreational activities just as it does in any other situation.

If you have been injured in a recreational or sporting activity in the last three years and would like a Free Legal Assessment of your case please complete the Application Form. We will handle your claim on a No Win No Fee basis at no cost to you.

Trip on highway
Mrs J tripped on a pothole whilst crossing a service road running parallel to a main road, fracturing her shoulder, wrist and ankle. The Council initially denied full liability for her accident alleging Mrs J was partly to blame for not avoiding the pothole. Cooks arranged a Conference with a barrister and on his advice rejected this. After intense negotiations Mrs J was awarded £17,000.00 she said:
"I had help from the start regarding my claim and found the advice very reassuring. I have never had to make a claim before so was apprehensive but you did a lot to alleviate my worries. Thanks again for all your help and support."
Mrs J from London
