Football Injury Claims 

Many injuries can occur in football training and matches that are nobody’s direct fault, and are just part and parcel of the contact involved in the sport. Still, when people become overly passionate in the game, and act either recklessly or violently, serious injuries can occur to players leaving them eligible to make a sport injury claim for sporting injury compensation.

What is a football injury claim? 

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 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. 
 
They 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 personal injury football accident claim, you are more than likely interested in how much your 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 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 
£16,860 to £26,050 
Ankle injuries after a football accident- fractures and ligament tears 
£12,900 to £24,950 
Toe injuries from a football accident- including multiple fractures 
£9,010 to £12,900 
Minor brain or head injury because of a football accident

Arm injury after a football accident- simple fracture 
£6,190 to £18,020 

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

Essentially, the aim of a football injury claim 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.
