Football Injury & Accidents in Bristol – Claim for Compensation
Football is played by millions of people each and every weekend around the UK, and none more so than in Bristol. As one of the most popular sports in the city, it’s played by men, women, and children, plus of course the two teams; Rovers and City. Due to the significant amount of people playing football in Bristol, we have seen an upsurge in personal injury claims of this nature.
Of course, football is a high intensity contact sport, and accidents and injuries are par the course. Most people expect to suffer a minor injury from time to time whilst playing, but what happens when that injury was caused by someone else, or because of someone’s negligence? In cases such as this there could be a compensation claim case, and at Personal Injury Bristol we specialise in Bristol football injury compensation.
Whether you are an amateur player, Sunday league, or a professional footballer (for example playing for City or Rovers), we have the expertise and solicitors in place to make sure that you are represented quickly and professionally in order to maximise your claim.
