Sporting Injuries & Personal Injury Compensation
Posted on 1st September 2021
After the release of a new head impact study says rugby players' cognitive function can decline after one season, our specialist sporting injury claims solicitors discuss how sporting injury claims work, what can be claimed for, and how we can help.
New head impact study says rugby players' cognitive function can decline after one season:
In recent days, a study by the University of South Wales has suggested that rugby players may see a decline in blood flow to the brain and a decline in cognitive function, after just one season of playing rugby.
It also indicated that this mental decline was directly linked to players experiencing concussions, repetitive contacts, or sub concussions. With the high-contact nature of rugby as a sport, it is considered part and parcel of the game for rugby players to sustain impact injuries. Still, this research shows the importance of tighter regulation in contact sports like this, and the need to avoid injury as much as possible, and eradicate it from player disputes completely.
If you have been injured while playing rugby or any other sport, and it was a result of violence or impact not part of the game itself, then you could be eligible to make a sporting injury claim with MG Legal.
How do sporting injury claims work?
In any sport, from boxing to ballet and beyond, there’s always the chance that any one of us, can, and will be injured.
According to a recent survey, the most common sporting injuries are: shin splints, sciatica, pulled hamstrings, torn cruciate ligaments, concussion, and the good old-fashioned groin pull. And yet it may not always be the person partaking in the sport that gets injured, MG Legal, accident injury solicitors in Lancaster, have also successfully helped those injured while spectating claim for financial compensation, too in sporting injury claims.
What we have to remember is that no matter what sport we are playing, an injury is never far away. The general rule is that if an injury is sustained during the course of a sporting event through accident alone, then you cannot claim for personal injury. One would expect to be punched in the face whilst boxing, or suffer from shin splints during the course of running the London Marathon. Some of the worst injuries are actually suffered whilst skiing, a sport carried out alone. However, such injuries are understood by partakers to be part and parcel of the whole experience, and you are therefore giving an implied consent to the risk of injury simply by joining in the sport.
However, let’s say you suffered an injury while playing football, be it as a professional or a Sunday League player, by an act of another player, that was malicious or even reckless (we have heard innumerable stories about footballers being kicked where the sun doesn't shine, well after the ref has blown the whistle), you may be eligible to claim sport injury compensation through one of our sporting injury claims.
With this in mind, it’s a good job that MG Legal’s team of personal injury solicitors in Lancaster, Preston and Longridge are well-versed in all aspects of sporting injury claims, and can help you obtain an award, all on a no-win-no-fee basis. Basically, if you were injured as a result of another player not acting within the rules of the sport (being punched in the face after the bell has gone in boxing, hit by a baseball bat on purpose, or being on the receiving end of an illegal tackle in rugby), then you could claim personal injury compensation through one of our sporting injury claims, and our accident injury solicitors are here to help.
