Sporting Injuries & Personal Injury Compensation
Posted on 5th December 2018
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, in no particular order: shin splints, sciatica, pulled hamstring, torn cruciate ligament, 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 just spectating, receive an award of compensation, too!
What we have to remember is that no matter what sport we are playing, an injury is never far away. And you don’t have to suffer a beating from a bat or a hockey puck (have you seen how many hockey players are missing teeth?). The general rule is that if an injury is sustained during the course of a sporting event, 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! However, such injuries are understood to be part and parcel of the whole experience, and you are therefore giving an implied consent to the risk of injury..
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. With this in mind, it’s probably a good job that MG Legal’s team of personal injury solicitors in Lancaster, Preston and Longridge are well-versed in all aspects of personal 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, and our accident injury solicitors are here to help, 7 days a week.
