Negligence details




Most sports injuries arise from team sports including football. Contact sports such as football tend to be intense and physical contact is likely. Sports injuries can occur in a wide variety of sporting situations however the sports which most often feature in serious injury statistics include football, rugby and hockey, although very serious injuries can occur in many other sporting activities. The cause of injuries in football includes uneven playing surfaces, inadequate coaching, faulty equipment, defective property, accidental fouls and deliberate 'professional' fouls in addition to player to player violence and occasional involvement with an aggressive spectator. In addition there may be injuries to spectators particularly crushing and stamping injury if crowd control is inadequate. Our football injury solicitors deal with a wide range of sports accidents and offer free advice without further obligation.

Defective Equipment

Football injuries can be caused by defective sports training equipment and inadequate facilities. It is the job of the sports facility, school, gym or team manager to monitor all devices and to intervene if the facilities or equipment are not maintained in good order failing which the sports facility, school or gym or team can be held negligent if an injury occurs. Ultimately the sports facility, school, gym or team is responsible for the safety of the participants. Most sporting facilities have liability insurance to protect them against personal injury claims by football injury solicitors.

Personal Injury Compensation Claims

If you are injured whilst playing football, you should seek the advice of a personal injury solicitor as soon as possible - there are time limits. The evidence of negligence will be examined, including a report of your injuries and a personal injury solicitor will make a determination as to whether a negligence compensation claim can be made on your behalf. Except in the case of a violent assault by another football player, the compensation claim is usually against the sporting facility that hosted the sporting event, as they are ultimately the ones in charge of safety in a game of football played on their property. In most cases the football team carries their own insurance which may be implemented to pay compensation in appropriate cases. The solicitor in a sports-related claim looks at a number of things to determine the financial amount of the claim. Pain and suffering is determined by the severity of the injury, the recovery period and whether or not there are any long term disabilities. There are numerous other items that a football injury solicitor can claim including current loss of wages to date and potential future loss of wages.
