Sports injuries have always been regarded as part and parcel of the game.
This is no longer the case and there is a good chance that you will be able to claim compensation if you have been injured as a result of activity.
Recent cases involving serious sports injuries due to unnecessary roughness in a football tackle and a collapsing rugby scrum have both made national headlines and raised awareness of the issue.
These cases applied to sports injuries suffered when playing the game, but sports injuries can occur when training or being taught. An over-enthusiastic sports coach setting impossible training schedules, or unsafe practice sessions could be liable to his athletes.
Here is an example of a case our Sports Injuries solicitors have completed. The client’s name has been changed.
S was a 14 year old girl who enjoyed gymnastics. She went to her local sports centre to learn. She was doing a floor exercise and the coach, in an attempt to give her more flexibility, injured her back. With the help of one of the top B.A.G.A. gymnastics coaches in the country, we were able to prove that the coach had been negligent and S received compensation.
