We’ve all seen the ads on TV shouting out ‘No Win No Fee’, but we never really think about them applying to ourselves. But the thing is, a lot of us walk around with a sports injury and never consider speaking to a personal injury solicitor.
Rugby Injury Claim?
Let’s suppose you were playing rugby last year and injured your shoulder in a messy scrum. It’s still nagging you 12 months on but you’re kind of just ‘living with it’. Well, believe it or not, you can probably claim some compensation for the injury.
The amount of sports injury compensation you can get depends very much on the severity of the injury, if blame can be apportioned and whether the results of the injury are lifelong or not.
Let’s say your child injured themselves during a horse riding lesson. She fell off the horse and broke her arm. 6 months on she still has pain, you have to take time off work to take her to physiotherapy and you can’t see an end in sight. Speak to a personal injury solicitor and find out whether or not you can claim compensation.
Sports injury claims are pretty common and no solicitor worth his salt will mind chatting you through the process of claiming. And to be honest, if it’s ‘No Win No Fee’, you’ve got nothing to lose anyway.
If you’ve fallen over playing football, had a motor-sport accident or come back from a snow sports holiday with a broken leg or twisted ligaments, then there’s a fair chance that you’ll be able to make a sports injury claim.
Here at Mackrell & Thomas, we are personal injury solicitors with over 30 years’ experience helping clients with sports injury claims. Whether it’s a minor injury or a serious life-changing sports injury, then as ‘No Win No Fee’ personal injury solicitors, we can help you.
When it comes to sport it’s clear that injuries can happen at any time. If you’ve simply tripped up then fair enough. However, if you’ve suffered a sports injury that is potentially someone else’s fault, you may well be able to claim compensation. This may be a sum of money to tide you over for the time you aren’t able to work or to pay for visits to the chiropractor or osteopath.
How To Make A Claim?
If we accept your sports injury claim on a No Win No Fee basis, you won’t have to pay any legal fees if the claim is unsuccessful. Call us for a chat on 051 668 0400 and we’ll be more than happy to talk you through the whole process of making a claim.
When it comes to sports injury claims, you don’t actually need to be participating in the sport. Suppose you’re at a rugby match and fall down some badly-lit steps after the game ends. If the safety measures in place weren’t adequate, we may be able to make a claim for you if it’s within the last three years.
So if you think there’s a chance that you may be entitled to some sports injury compensation, you’ve got nothing to lose by giving us a call.
