Sport and exercise have many health benefits. They reduce the likelihood of heart disease, obesity and depression. Unfortunately however, there are risks involved which can cause injuries.
Although it is true that sports players undertake some responsibility for these types of injury by taking part in sport, in some circumstances they are still entitled to . This occurs namely when the injured party was not at fault. This can be the case if the injury occurs due to a poor playing surface or poor equipment.
It is also possible to claim compensation for a negligent act by an opponent. This can occur when the opponent acts out-with the rules of the game. For example, if a rugby player is punched instead of tackled by an opponent.
After sustaining a sports injury it is important to seek medical treatment. This not only helps you make as good a recovery as possible, but also provides a record of your injury, which gives you a better chance of being successful when making a compensation claim.
