Whilst it is possible for someone to get injured purely by accident whilst participating in a sport, you certainly do not expect to suffer an injury due to someone’s carelessness. If therefore you are injured as a result of either playing or watching sports following a third party’s negligence then you can make a claim for compensation. Where the injury is clearly an accident and no one is to blame you will not be able to bring a claim.

Sports can be dangerous, especially contact sports and those where there is dangerous equipment involved. It therefore follows that participants have a duty of care to ensure that they do not do anything to compromise the health and safety of fellow participants or spectators. Whilst sport injury compensation claims are usually made where participants have been provided with defective equipment or the playing surface has not been adequately maintained, they can also be brought where other participants have acted without regard for the health and safety of those around them.

Make a Claim for a Sports Injury

If you would like to make a claim following a sports injury then you should speak with a personal injury claims Bristol solicitor** who will be able to advise you on what steps to take and how to maximise your claim. The amount of compensation you will be awarded will depend on the seriousness of your injuries and on whether you were partly to blame for your injuries, for example, by not wearing safety equipment when provided to you. In addition to compensation for your injuries you could also make a claim for any consequential loss which usually includes loss of income and medical expenses.

Any claim must be brought within three years of the date of the accident and in the case of children within three years of the child’s 18th birthday. Any claim brought outside of this time will be time barred in the absence of very exceptional circumstances. It is therefore important that you seek advice from a personal injury claims Bristol solicitor** as soon as possible so that you do not fall foul of any of the time restrictions to bringing a sports injury compensation claim.
