Sports Accidents Claims
Achilles tendon, hamstring injuries, broken bones, knee, groin, elbow, neck and muscular injuries are particularly common with sporting activities, but when injuries arise from accidents which could have been prevented, you may be entitled to claim compensation. Damian Horan, Partner
The owner or occupier of premises where a sport takes place has to make sure that any person using the facility is safe from an accident. This includes both private and public sports areas. If you are learning a sport under tuition your trainer should be suitably qualified to ensure that you do not suffer harm. Safe equipment and protective clothing are essential to certain sporting activities. The trainer/instructor has a legal obligation under health and safety regulations to meet proper standards to ensure that those taking part are free from unnecessary risk.
The same principles apply even with contact sports. In these cases the other players have a duty not to injure you deliberately and not to play in such a dangerous way that will cause you to suffer personal injury.
