What are football injury claims? 

A football injury claim is a claim for sporting injury compensation after someone has been injured in a game of football, or at a football venue, due to the negligence of somebody else. These football injury claims can be made for any type of injury, and there are a number of different scenarios that can lead to a successful football injury claim
Football injury claims can be made for football injuries sustained at any level, from 5 a side, to Sunday League, to the Premiership League. In march of 2004, a player for Manchester United sustained injuries so bad that he had to give up his promising career, and he won over £4 million from the High Court as the potential lost earnings in his claim. 
Some of the most common situations that our sporting injury claims solicitors see, include: 
Reckless actions within a football game, such as violent tackles 
Assault- whether from another player, a spectator, or an official of any kind, acts of intentional violence in a sporting environment are still classed as assault, and a criminal injury claim can be made for them against the individual 
Inadequate or dangerous training techniques or advice- if the advice or training of your football coach or trainer has led to injury, you could make a negligence football injury claim 
Poorly maintained pitches or faulty equipment- if you are injured as a result of being made to play on a poorly maintained football pitch, or being given faulty equipment to use, you could make a football injury claim against the association or venue 

How much is my football injury claim worth? 

When you are making a football injury claims you are more than likely interested in how much your football injury claim may be worth. The claim will be broken up into a number of different damages, many of which are calculated on an individual basis.  
In terms of the injuries alone, known as general damages, our personal injury solicitors have put together the below table outlining how much different football injury claims are worth, with reference to the Judicial College guidelines. 
Description of Injury: 
Compensation for injury alone: 
Very serious leg injuries because of a football accident- permanent mobility problems 
£51,460 to £85,600 
Less serious leg injuries from a football accident- complex fractures and tissue damage

Ankle injuries after a football accident- fractures and ligament tears 
£12,900 to £24,950 
Toe injuries from a football accident- including multiple fractures

Am I eligible to make a football injury claim for my injuries? 

Essentially, the aim of football injury claims is for a specialist solicitor to prove that the injuries you have sustained were caused by the negligence of somebody else, and that somebody else was to blame for them. Whether this was through direct violence, inadequate training, or providing faulty equipment, there are a number of instances where negligence can be proved. 
Still, there is no denying that negligence occurring within football matches and sports can be more difficult to prove, with contact and foul play being a part of the sport, but our specialist solicitors will only accept your football injury claim if we can see that there is blame involved, and we are able to prove it.

Football Injury Claims For Children: 

With so many children attending football clubs, both in school and out of school, it seems inevitable that they will be injured from time to time as part of their hobby. However, while some injuries can be part and parcel of playing football, for injuries that are caused by the negligence of someone else, you could be eligible to make a no win no fee football injury claim on behind of your child. 
Legally, children cannot represent themselves in a football injury claim, but instead can be represented by a parent or adult acting as their ‘litigation friend’. You can make a football injury claim for your injured child this way at any point until they reach the age of 18. 
Our football injury solicitors are well experienced in making football injury claims this way, and guiding our clients through the litigation friend process. To learn more about making a no win no fee football injury claim on behalf of your injured child, simply contact our team online here and speak to a solicitor about your potential football injury claim within one working hour. 

Who can I make a football injury claim against? 

When you are injured in a football accident that was not your fault, you might be unsure who you can make a subsequent no win no fee football injury claim against. Generally speaking, our football injury solicitors would advise that your football injury claim could be made in the following ways: 
Against an insurance policy that is paid for through your subscription fees 
Through the CICA scheme if you’ve been assaulted while playing football 
Through the public liability insurance policy held by the pitch operator

Time Limits for Football Injury Claims: 

Football injury claims are subject to the same rules and time limits that all personal injury claims must abide by. These come from the Limitation Act of 1980, which states that an injury claim for financial compensation must be made within three years of when the injuries occurred, or the date at which you were made aware of the injuries, if this was a later date. 
If you are making a football injury claim on behalf of your child, you instead have until the date of their 18th birthday to make the football injury claim. At this point, your child has a further three years, or until their 21st birthday, within which to make a claim on their own behalf. 
While these time limits may seem like a long time, it is important to remember that the process of making football injury claims can be a long and complex one, even for our specialist sporting injury claims solicitors. Because of this, it is always recommended to get in touch with a specialist solicitors, such as MG Legal, as soon as possible, and get the ball rolling on your football injury claim
