Any sportsperson will accept from time to time that they may find themselves injured and it is simply an accident with no one to blame, for instance, if they are injured during a legal tackle in a game of football or rugby.

Despite this, occasionally injuries can happen in sport when someone else is to blame. If you or a loved one has suffered in this way then you should contact the expert team of personal injury solicitors at Forbes today.

Types of sports injuries

As we accept that there is an amount of risk with sport, there are certain injuries that you cannot claim for, such as a trip or fall that happened organically. However, if an injury occurred as a result of negligence then you would potentially be able to make a claim.

This includes being given faulty or incorrect equipment or using a badly maintained playing surface. You may also be able to make a claim if you were injured as a result of a malicious tackle, since players should be expected to take part in a manner which looks after themselves and other players.

What should I do?

If you or a loved one has been injured as part of a sporting activity and someone else is to blame, contact the expert team of personal injury solicitors at Forbes today for advice and to start making your claim.

Our initial advice will be free of charge, and there's no obligation to proceed. We operate on a no win, no fee basis too, so you won't undertake any financial risk.
