Can I make a sports injury claim?

To make a sports injury claim, you must be able to prove that the injury was the fault of a third party – a person or organisation. That could be:

  • A collision, such as in car racing
  • An improper tackle
  • Bad instruction, for example from a coach or instructor
  • Poor equipment or facilities
  • Football violence

Typically, your injury must have happened within the last three years. If you’re not sure about the timeline, just get in touch with us and we’ll talk you through it.

Can I make a No Win No Fee* claim?

Yes. If you have a case for a claim, it falls under personal injury, which is classed as a civil case (as there are no criminal charges) and is covered by No Win No Fee* solicitors.
