Sports Injury

Claim for sports injury: When sports go beyond fitness and healthy competition, injuries can happen as a result of the organisers or another participant. We have extensive experience in advising both professional and amateur sports players with making claims in respect of their injuries.

Examples of Sports Injury

  • Injuries due to an overaggressive tackle
  • Tripped by another player
  • Deliberate harm caused to you by another player in the game

We understand that in the heat of the game, injuries can occur because of tackles, trips or falls. If your injury was caused by an over-aggressive participant and has impacted your life, speak with us about how you may be entitled to compensation and make a claim for sports injury.

Case study

Irvings recently helped a footballer who was playing in the Blue Square League. Steve was injured in the middle of a competitive game when a player on the other team committed a two-footed tackle over the ball, breaking Steve’s leg in two places and effectively ending his football career. Liability for the case was disputed and was dealt with by gathering evidence from those playing on the field and those officiating that day. Irvings also obtained expert, independent advice and views on whether or not the tackle was within the spirit of the game. Following the issue of proceedings and the gathering of helpful expert evidence, we knew the case had strong prospects of success. The claim was settled successfully for a significant sum and eventually Steve was able to retrain as a coach and obtain work abroad.
