Sports Accidents

Whether you are playing sports at a professional, amateur or purely recreational level, they are supposed to be a way of relaxing, maintaining fitness and enjoying yourself. However, we unfortunately know that this is not always the case. Injuries are common in all kinds of sports, but sometimes these injuries are caused by the actions of others and are therefore avoidable.

If you have been involved in a sports accident, which was the fault of someone else, we are here to assist you in making a claim for compensation.

At Smith Jones, we are accredited personal injury solicitors by The Law Society and since 1988, we have successfully represented many people at all levels, including those at the top of their game, who have suffered from sports accidents.

To find out how we can assist you, call us now on 0800 195 95 90 to talk to one of our expert solicitors. We are available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week and are ready to take your call.

Why Do Sports Accidents Occur?

Since we were formed in 1988, we have dealt with cases where sports accidents have occurred for all kinds of reasons. Ultimately though, the cause of sports accidents either comes down to the negligence of others or others not playing by the rules of the game.

Previously, we have dealt with cases where clients have been injured by various factors including deliberate assault, dangerous tackles, defective equipment and dangerous ground conditions.

Injuries can occur in all kinds of sports. Whether you have been injured whilst participating in football, rugby, equestrian, cricket, cycling, hockey, running, swimming, skiing, snowboarding or any other type of sport, we have the experience to help you make a claim.


Making A Claim For A Sports Injury

We are here to provide you with assistance in making a claim for an injury that you have suffered as a result of a sports accident. As specialist solicitors in this area, we have previously provided assistance to sports organisations and we currently offer sponsorship to local clubs to assist them in making their sport accessible to more people.

To make a claim for a sports injury you have suffered, it is important that you gather as much information as you can. This will be in the form of an account of exactly what happened and witness statements from fellow players and match/race officials, if applicable.

We are here to help whether your case involves a clear-cut claim for damages, or a complex claim that requires future care and rehabilitation arrangements.

With a team of solicitors who are dedicated to claims of this type and will utilise every aspect of their expertise, we will recover the maximum compensation for the injuries you have sustained. With any claim, we will also work to ensure that you are not only fully compensated for the injuries sustained, but also for any other unexpected expenditure too.

If you believe you have a claim for an injury caused by a sports accident, call us for free on 0800 195 95 90 and discuss your claim with one of our expert solicitors. We are available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week and are ready to take your call.
