Rugby Injury Claims Due to High Risk Sport
Due to the nature of rugby, and the contact involved in tackles, scrums, and mauls, there are a high proportion of injuries that can result in criminal or civil litigation where fault can be apportioned. If a player has been injured due to someone else deviating from the laws of the game thus presenting risk of injury to a fellow player, then there could be a rugby injury claim to answer.
Types of Compensation Claims We Can Cover
The types of incidents that have resulted in rugby injury claims in Bristol and the UK include, but are not limited to the following types:
- Inadequate pitches or playing surfaces
- Assaults by opposing players, team mates, or spectators
- Hazardous materials on the pitch
- Poor training or coaching advice
- Bad tackles
- Scrum collapses
- Goal collapses and impacts
In simple terms, if you have been injured whilst playing rugby, and it was not your fault, then there’s every chance that you could make a claim for personal injury compensation.
How Much Rugby Injury Compensation?
Each case will differ, and so we cannot give exact figures on the website. We might be able to provide you with estimates once you call and speak with an advisor. The seriousness of the injury will often dictate how much compensation is awarded.
Given the wide range of injuries that can occur in rugby, all of them will be rated differently by insurers and legal awarding bodies. Injuries can include but are not limited to:
- Head injuries
- Neck and back injuries
- Abrasions and cuts
- Fractures and breaks
- Spinal injuries and sometimes paralysis
