Sports injury

If your sports injury is found to be the result of an error of judgement on your part, or the general physicality of a contact sport such as football or rugby, then the court will generally reject such a claim.


However, if a case of negligence is involved on the part of the referee, another player, or individuals responsible for the upkeep of sporting facilities, then you may be eligible to make a claim.


The following situations could result in a successful sports injury claim:
⦁    A referee was negligent in their duty to prevent situations posing unnecessary risks to players.
⦁    A trainer or manager did not provide appropriate supervision, resulting in injury.
⦁    Sports equipment or facilities had developed dangerous defects due to poor maintenance.
⦁    Another player demonstrated extreme recklessness or dangerous conduct.
⦁    A formal sports trainer gave incorrect sporting advice or direction, resulting in an injury.
⦁    Spectator accidents
