If you have been injured whilst participating in any kind of sport, as a professional or amateur, then our Sports Unit will be able to help. We understand the sort of injuries that can cause difficulties in the lives of dedicated sportsmen and women and we empathise with their commitment and dedication to excellence.
It can be difficult to bring a sports injury claim because it is often said that injury is an inevitable by-product of playing sport – especially a contact sport.
Our approach to sports injury claims
Our Sports Unit has successfully claimed damages for athletes injured by dangerous tackles, deliberate assault during a game, defective equipment, dangerous ground conditions, and thorough negligent medical advice or treatment.
Bringing a claim for a sports injury often revolves around witness evidence being available from fellow-players, and wherever possible evidence from the match official. We will need to take witness statements as a matter of urgency, before memories fade.
