Claiming compensation for sports injuries

Whether you are playing sport competitively or just for fun, sports injuries can occur.

When you play sport, you obviously take on some degree of risk that you may be hurt. However, you do not accept all risks, and not all sports injuries are your fault. If you are injured due to someone else’s fault, you are entitled to claim compensation.

Who can you claim compensation from?

Usually compensation is claimed for sports injuries caused by other players. However, faulty or poorly maintained grounds are also common grounds for compensation. People that may be sued for sports injuries include:

  • Players
  • Referees
  • Coaches
  • Club owners/managers
  • Facilities owners/managers

What can you claim compensation for?

Sports injuries can not only cause serious physical pain and distress, but you can also be lumped with big medical and rehabilitation bills. If you are seriously injured this might also affect your ability to work and earn your income. If you are a professional player the financial consequences of sports injuries may be more serious, affecting your professional career and sponsorship deals.

When can you claim compensation?

If a sports injury is the fault of the negligent behaviour of someone else – such as a player, club or the owner of the sporting grounds – you may be able to claim compensation for your injury.

For example, you may be able to claim compensation for your sports injury if it was caused by another player who was in breach of the rules of the game.
