Sports Injury Claims

Generally, we associate sport and exercise with keeping fit and healthy. However, when proper precautions and procedures are not put in place, or not adhered to, sport and sporting events can themselves become the cause of a wide range of injuries.

Most sports are physically demanding so some minor injuries are inevitable. However, if the cause of your injury was not your fault, you may be entitled to compensation.

It is not just professional sports people that are able to claim compensation for sports injuries. If someone else is to blame for the incident, anyone is entitled to claim compensation, whether they are taking part on a professional, semi-professional, amateur, or purely recreational basis.

Here at Jobling Gowler, our specialist Sports Injuries Team deal with a range of sports injuries involving some of the following sports activities:

  • Fitness Clubs or Gymnasiums
  • Exercise Classes
  • Team related sports including Football, Rugby, Cricket and Hockey
  • Indoor Cricket and Hockey
  • Cycling
  • Athletics
  • Swimming

Around 4.5 million adults currently hold gym memberships in the UK, with an increasing number of people joining. Gyms and leisure centres are great places to keep fit, providing they meet the correct Health and Safety standards. Where they do not meet these standards, accidents can occur, some of which result in serious injuries.
