How long do I have to claim for Accident & Injury at work?


Claims for sports injuries fall under the area of law known as personal injury.


Personal injury claimants usually have three years from the date of the injury to make a sports injury compensation claim.


Claims can sometimes be made outside the three-year limitation period, however.


Because of the limitation period for personal injury claims, it is important to seek legal advice from Duncan Lewis sports injury solicitors as soon as possible if you are injured in a sporting accident.


Family members can call Duncan Lewis for advice on making a claim if a loved one has sustained a sports injury and is still recovering in hospital.


How much compensation can I claim for Sports Injuries?


Compensation for sports injuries includes:


  • General Damages for pain, suffering and loss of amenity
    The exact amount will be assessed according to the extent of injury, estimated recovery time and rehabilitation needed – and whether further medical treatment or even lifelong care is needed.
  • Special Damages to cover medical fees and out-of-pocket expenses
    Expenses might include physiotherapy, loss of earnings, travel expenses to hospital or damage to personal items. In more serious cases, ongoing care, loss of future salary and pension or adaptations to your home would be included.


Who pays my sports injury compensation?


Sports injury claims are usually settled by the insurer of the party liable for the injury – whether this is a sports club or even trainer who was negligent.


Companies which supplied faulty goods or defective sports equipment can also be claimed against if the fault resulted in a sports injury.


If you sustained a sports injury on holiday and booked the activity as part of a package holiday, you may be able to claim against the tour operator if the activity company was negligent and you were injured.


Your Duncan Lewis sports injury claims solicitor will be able to advise you further.


Will I have to go to court to claim compensation?


Your Duncan Lewis personal injury solicitor will keep you fully informed at all stages of the case.


Most claims for sports injury compensation are settled out-of-court – Duncan Lewis personal injury lawyers negotiate hard to get the best settlement for you.


But if a court hearing is necessary, Duncan Lewis instructs leading barristers who specialise in sports injury claims, to make sure you have the best legal representation possible.
