Sporting Injury

A Sporting Injury can happen in several situations that may include exercise classes, team sports, fitness clubs, gymnasiums, schools, motor sports, military physical training, water sports, athletics, winter sports, team building exercises and swimming. A sportsperson agrees to the dangers involved in a particular sport and so it is difficult to get compensation for sporting injuries incurred during normal play. However it can be possible to get compensation for sporting injuries due to following reasons-

  • If the sports pitch, equipment and court are having potholes then the injured can claim for compensation.
  • If the umpire and coach fail in pursuing thorough risk assessment of the sports area then the victim can claim against them for neglecting duty of care.
  • If the coach do not provide adequate supervision and training to those playing extreme sports such as skiing and snowboarding, then the injured can claim against the coach.
  • Those who got injured due to flawed or inadequate training of the trainer are entitled to no win no fee sports injury compensation claim.
  • One can also get compensation in case of getting injured due to dangerous and unprofessional conduct of other players in the game. For instance, if you are participating in a race competition and you get injured due to getting pushed by another participant, then you can sue that participant for compensation.
  • Sporting injuries can also occur due to unsafe and weak sporting equipments that can lead to severe injury to the sportsperson.

Spectators can also incur sporting injury and that is called as sporting event spectator injury. It is responsibility of the holders of the sports event to keep the spectator’s area safe and suitable for all spectators. The amount of compensation given in the sporting injury claim depends upon the severity of injury and the accident. If a sportsperson dies due to accident in sports like motor race and skiing, then the family must ask for heavy compensation against the event holders for neglecting risk assessment of vehicles used in race.

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."
