Rugby Injury Claims

As a rough contact sport you expect mishaps in rugby matches. However, if you’ve been injured as a result of a reckless or violent tackle, you may have a rugby injury claim.

Can I make a rugby injury claim?

Yes, if you’ve been injured through someone else’s negligent action or aggressive behaviour and you’ve required medical treatment.

Common injuries include:

  • Concussions
  • Back and neck injuries
  • Broken bones
  • Face and head injuries

If an injury is caused deliberately then criminal charges may also be brought.

When can you make a rugby injury claim?

You would need to be able to prove your rugby injury was the result of someone else’s negligent behaviour and that it was more than just a simple error of judgment.

Having medical statements and witnesses to back you up is also very helpful, but we can help with that.

More about making a claim

How can First4Lawyers help?

Our sports injury solicitors know the ins and outs of making claims like these and can accept claims on a No Win No Fee* basis, so there’s no risk or upfront cost to you.

About No Win No Fee

Only pay a fee if you receive compensation

Where we offer No Win No Fee services typically customers pay 25% of the amount recovered by our solicitors, although this will be subject to your individual circumstances and the actual fee may be less than this but it will never be more. Success fees are common practice and they were introduced when the law changed in April 2013.

How much compensation will I receive for a rugby injury claim?

That very much depends on your injury and how severe it is. Our compensation calculator gives an idea of the amounts you could be awarded, but a chat with our legal advisors will provide you with advice tailored to your individual circumstances.

Is there a time limit for making a claim?

You typically have three years from the date of the injury to start a rugby injury claim.

I think I have a claim, what do I do next?

Keep your own record of what happened, including dates, circumstances and any photographic evidence.

You will need to seek medical attention for treatment and to make sure the injuries are noted in your medical records.

Then just get in touch with us for a free consultation. We’ll ask you about your situation and advise you of your options.
