If you have an accident and suffer an injury whilst playing or watching sport, which was someone else's fault, then you may be entitled to make a personal injury compensation claim.

You should be aware that:

  • Organisers of sporting events have a duty to spectators to make sure that they are safe from injury
  • Participants in sporting activities who are injured through the negligence of an opponent, for example a reckless tackle in a football match, have a right to claim compensation.

The participants in any sport carry some degree of risk of injury by virtue of their acceptance to participate. If your personal injury occurs after a simple trip or fall for no reason, you would not be entitled to make a personal injury compensation claim. In addition, you would not be entitled to make a personal injury compensation claim if your sports injury was caused by a legal tackle from another player.
