Sports Injury Claims

The combination of our specialist sports law department, our football agency and our personal injuries department means that we have the right people and expertise to be in a position to deal with your claim effectively.

Individuals participating in sport accept a certain degree of risk when entering the field of play. However all sports stakeholders owe a duty of care to one another. Therefore when another individual or governing body acts with a reckless disregard for your safety, then you are entitled to seek compensation for the damage you have suffered. Reckless disregard can include a dangerous tackle by an opponent, inadequate facilities or inadequate safety equipment provided by a club/sports body and negligent rules and regulations implemented by a club/sports body.

Many amateur athletes are not covered by club, league or sports body insurance and they require advice on where and how to seek compensation.

Professional athletes often suffer serious injuries which are not covered by the insurance policies in place or their clubs refuse to pay out and they require advice on where and how to seek compensation.

From playing football to adventure sports and gym accidents, we can assist you with your claim.

You may also have been injured whilst viewing a sport, due to for instance the public viewing area being unsafe or due to the lack of security at an event, and we can help with this also.

If you have been injured playing sport, within the last 2 years, contact us on 01 01 659 9405 to arrange a discussion.
