Expertise And Understanding In Your Football Injury Claim

Rough and tumble is part of any game of football.  When playing at any level, there is an acceptance that a player may get the odd ache or pain, bruise or bump.  However, when a football injury is more serious and inflicted either intentionally or recklessly, things change.

Late or malicious tackles can inflict significant injury with sometimes life changing consequences. Those who do suffer a significant football injury may look to the opposing player or his team for injury compensation.

At Irwin Mitchell we fight fearlessly to achieve the best outcome for your claim. We're renowned for our understanding of the issues affecting you and your family due to a football injury, and we know what positive action to take to make a difference. 

Our lawyers offer the highest level of professionalism and expertise, combined with dedication and sensitivity.

Above all, we put you first.

Handling Sports Injury Claims With Expertise And Sensitivity

If you have suffered an injury whilst playing football, be it as a professional footballer or a Sunday League player, you could be entitled to claim sport injury compensation.

Whilst elements of risk are expected in sport, you could be entitled to make a sports injury claim if you suffered an injury that was someone else's fault.

Claims needn’t be limited to reckless tackles. The owners of sports facilities have a duty to provide a safe playing environment, so pitches should be free of hazards, such as chemicals or broken glass.

Footballing injury claims can be complex and not everyone who is injured whilst playing football will have a claim, so you’ll need to contact a legal team that understands this area. Irwin Mitchell has a team of specialist lawyers with experience of helping both professional and amateur players seek compensation for injuries sustained on the football pitch. As part of your football injury claim, we can recover damages for the injuries that you suffered as well as any loss of earnings that you may have experienced as a result of your injury.

The sooner you get in touch with us, the easier it is to investigate your claim. We may need to gather evidence from other players, referees and spectators.

We can offer you expert support and advice on your claim, and help you to secure the compensation that you deserve.
