Negligence details




Sports injuries occur in a wide variety of sports, including track, rugby, football, boxing, horse riding, show jumping, and outdoor activities like hiking and orienteering. Contact sports including football, cricket and rugby have the highest rate of serious injury. Many of these injuries are purely accidental and no one can realistically be blamed however in some cases the injury can be because of negligence, foul play, intentional violence, poor equipment, poor refereeing, lack of supervision and even criminal assault on another player or a spectator. One sport where there are occasional serious injuries including fractures, head injury and brain damage is hockey. A very hard hockey ball is propelled at speed using hockey sticks and is often to be seen flying through the air at head height although this is not the intention of the game. Hockey produces injuries through slips and falls, through contact with hockey sticks and as a result of impact with the ball. If you have suffered injuries it may be beneficial to speak to hockey injury solicitors in order to preserve you right to claim compensation.


If you have suffered a hockey injury which is due to the negligence of another person, you need to seek the advice of a hockey injury solicitor who will evaluate your medical records and talk to eye witnesses before advising you on whether or not to take legal action. Generally speaking a hockey injury compensation claim will be covered by a policy of insurance which is generally held by teams, leagues and facilities who should all be indemnified against negligence covering their property, premises and staff members.

Pain & Suffering

Pain and suffering for personal injury in a hockey accident compensation claim is determined after considering the extent of the injury, the time taken for recovery and whether or not there are any long term consequences or disabilities. A judge decides on the value of a hockey injury after considering government guidelines supplied by the Judicial Studies Board, after consideration of similar previously decided personal injury cases and based on his own experience as a practicing personal injury lawyer.
