Most people in the UK like to unwind playing sport or partaking in a leisure activity, and many will have suffered an injury at one time or another - it comes with territory you may think. But think again...
Your safety is your right, and if you have been injured as the direct result of someone else's negligence or recklessness, then you could and probably should claim what is rightfully yours - a sports injury compensation claim.
While in the past sporting injuries have been thought of as inevitable consequences of taking part in contact activity, but with the growth of the 'No Win No Fee' industry over the past decade, people have become a lot more aware of their rights, should they have been injured as a result of negligence.
The area of law that surrounds sports injury claims remains complex, as a number of injuries types wouldn't qualify for a compensation claim. But before we get to that, listed below are some of potential causes of injury that could result in a claim.
Remember, it is up to you to prove your injury was a result of either negligence, or reckless or malicious intent. At Legal Request we are experts in this field, and our help could prove invaluable in your quest to receive the full amount of compensation that is rightfully yours.
If you have been injured in the last three years while taking part in a sporting or recreational activity then you may be entitled to make a personal injury compensation claim. Make sure you document as much as you can, take photographs of your injury and the area that it happened, as well as ensuring you obtain contact details for all the witnesses to your accident.
Sporting injuries can cause pain, suffering, loss of earning or permanent disabilities just like any other injury, so if someone else is to blame for your sporting injury help us help your claim compensation. And remember, with Legal Request you will keep 100% of the compensation awarded.
I had never been involved in an accident before so wasn't too sure what the process entailed. After speaking with Legal Request they made everything clear for me.
