Sports Injury Claims – Who is liable?

People can suffer from a serious injury arising as a result of a sports injury. The most common contact sports such as Rugby, Gaelic, Soccer, Hockey, Boxing are more likely to cause injury but a sports injury can also be caused by less strenuous activities such as cycling, running, even yoga. Treatment and recovery times can vary from weeks to years depending on the type of injury sustained. Patients who’ve suffered acute and chronic sports injuries may have to undergo expensive rehabilitative care such as orthopedic therapy or physiotherapy to make a proper recovery. The recovery time can result in loss of earnings and costly medical bills. Synnott Lawline Solicitors offer expert legal advice in relation to sports injury claims. It’s our job to handle the stress of your personal injury litigation.

Inadequate facilities or training:

The management of sports facilities used for training and competitions for any sporting activity must provide safe equipment and facilities. Whether it’s a gym, playing pitch, school, pool or field, pitch surfaces and sports equipment must be in good condition. If you had an injury due to a sub standard surface or faulty equipment you may be entitled to compensation as it is the responsibility of the facility / school to provide a safe sporting facility.

Unqualified training:

If you had an injury under the care of an unqualified member of staff you may also be entitled to personal injury compensation.
