Some injuries are sometimes inevitable if you are partaking in contact sport or physical activity, but if the cause of the injury was not your fault then you could be eligible to make a claim.
Some acceptable reasons to make a claim include:
- If inappropriate kit was provided that was not a suitable standard for the activity
- Faulty equipment, for example, in a gym
- Falls or accidents due to a lack of supervision. This could be during an organised lesson or group activity for horse riding, rock climbing, etc.
- Trips and slips on poorly maintained playing surfaces or car parks
- Unsafe facilities such as seats and hand rails
- Lack of appropriate instruction.
You can also make a claim as a spectator of a sport, as stadiums and sports grounds are responsible for providing a safe environment for spectators, both inside and outside a venue.
