Sports Injury Claims
If you’ve been injured whilst playing, or watching, a sport you might be able to make a sports injury compensation claim. This will be the case if your injury was because of the negligent, reckless, or intentional actions, of another party.
At Arthur Jackson & Co Solicitors our expert personal injury team have represented many clients who have suffered injuries both while playing and watching sports. We have won compensation for people ranging from reckless football tackles, resulting in lifelong disability, to fans who have been injured because of a poorly maintained stadium.

Who could be liable for my sports injury claim?
The person, or organisation, that are responsible for your injuries are those that caused them. In sports injury claims this means if you are owed a duty of care, which was breached, and lead to you being injured. This could be many individuals or organisations including:
- Event Organisers
- Land/Facility Owners
- Medical Staff
- Match Officials
How long do I have before making a sports injury claim for compensation?
In nearly all cases the time limit to make a personal injury claim is three years. There are exceptions to this, including if you are claiming on behalf of a child or if there are mental capacity issues.
How much is my sports injury claim worth?
Valuing a sports injury claim is complicated and requires consideration of all the details. Factors such as the severity of your injury, and how it impacted your life will need to be considered before we can provide an accurate valuation. If you want to learn more about valuation and compensation, you can in our types of compensation guide.
How much will it cost to hire a sports injury solicitor?
The cost of bringing a personal injury claim will vary depending on how complicated it is, but there might not need to be a cost. Our expert team handle many cases on a no win, no fee basis. If this is right for you, provided you adhere to the terms of the agreement, you will not be exposed to any out of pocket costs.
Many insurance policies include legal expenses cover which could pay for some or all their costs, and we advise anyone who might need a solicitor to check if they have any such cover.
