Sports Injuries

Sport and physical exercise are undoubtedly good for us and we all know that when we exercise or play sport, there is a risk of injury or even an accident. The law recognises this and provides that we consent to a level of risk, however, when an injury or accident happens in sport due to clear negligence, lack of action to prevent injury, or an action which causes injury, deliberate or negligent, a claim for personal injury is possible.

In summary, very similar rules apply in legal terms for sports personal injury claims, as for other types of accidents such as slips or trips.

Common claims for sport related injuries include:-

  • Team sports such as football, hockey or rugby
  • Injuries at fitness clubs or gyms related to defective equipment or failure of gym instructors
  • Injuries at accidents to children while doing PE at school
  • Outdoor activities such as climbing or horse riding
  • Winter sports such as skiing or ice skating
  • Watersports and swimming accidents
  • Motorsport
