Sports Injury Compensation

With the ever-increasing popularity of sport these days, it has become more and more important that those responsible for protecting us against risks to our health and safety fulfill their responsibilities. It is a sad fact that as the number of people taking part in sports increases, so does the amount of accidents whilst doing so.

Most sports carry an inherent risk of injury and as a result we all have to accept this when taking part. Due to this high risk, not everyone will be able to pursue a successful claim for personal injury. The law surrounding sporting injuries is complex and as such each case needs careful consideration. It is also important to note that whether you are a professional sportsperson or not, the law remains the same.

For example, although sports such as rugby and football are contact sports and allow tackling, there are legal and illegal tackles. If you have been the victim of an illegal tackle, as defined by the rules of the sport in question, you may be able to claim against your competitor. You can either claim against the individual or, as is more often the case, through their club who will have insurance in place to cover your claim.

Faulty sporting equipment is also a common cause of sports injury. If you have been provided with inadequate facilities such as faulty gym equipment then you could well have grounds to make a claim.

Each case is decided on its merits so expert legal advice is essential when establishing the prospects of success in any case. If you or a member of your family have been involved in a sporting accident then please do not hesitate to contact us for free, no obligation advice.

Mercury Legal will pursue your claim at no upfront cost to you and you will not have to pay anything if your claim is unsuccessful through no fault of your own. We operate with the highest levels of customer care and we will represent your case professionally, managing all of the paperwork along the way.
