If you have been injured while participating in a sport or attending a sporting event, and the injury was caused by someone else’s negligence, you may be eligible to make a compensation claim. At Primus Solicitors, our specialist medical negligence solicitors can help you make a successful injury compensation claim.
As organisers and clubs for sports events have a duty of care to ensure the safety of all individuals, they can be held liable if they breach this duty of care through a negligent action or lack of action.
- Dangerous and poorly maintained surfaces in venues, courts, and pitches
- Defective or inadequate equipment
- Failure by an official in control to take all reasonably possible steps to prevent an accident from occurring.
- Poor or inadequate training, advice, or instruction on how to use equipment safely.
At Primus Solicitors, we handle the majority of all our personal injury compensation cases on a No Win No Fee basis. It means that if you don’t win your claim, you won’t have to pay any legal costs.
To prove your injury was caused by someone else’s negligence, you can provide us with the following documents and evidence:
- A copy of the accident report log if available
- Photos of the incident location and the cause of the accident
- Contact details of any witnesses
- Photos of your injuries
- A medical report from where you received medical treatment.
The compensation for the typical sports related injury claim is dependent on the severity of your injuries.
- General damages are compensation for the pain and suffering you’ve experienced due to negligence.
- Special damages are compensation for any financial losses such as loss of earnings, extra medical expenses, any home modifications, travel expenses associated with your medical care, etc.
For this type of injury claim, you will usually have three years from the date of the accident. Children have until they are 21 years old to make a claim for injuries if the accident occurred before they turned 18. If your child does not have the mental capacity to represent themselves, you can act as their litigation friend and make a claim on their behalf.
At Primus Solicitors, our medical negligence experts have years of experience in dealing with sports injury compensation claims. Contact us today to discuss your case and find out how we can help you get the compensation you deserve.
