If you have suffered a sport injury or leisure injury you may be eligible to claim personal injury compensation.

The organiser and sometimes the other participants have a responsibility for keeping the event or the venue safe for the sport or leisure activity you are participating in. If they don’t follow the rules, in a reckless way, you may be able to bring a compensation claim either against the owner of the premises, the organiser of an event or one of the other participants.

Our sport injury solicitors have considerable experience and knowledge of the rules, regulations and laws that apply. We have successfully recovered personal injury compensation for victims of accidents at fairgrounds, sports grounds and leisure centres.

We offer free advice and guidance without obligation. If you choose to instruct our leisure injury solicitors we will represent you on a no win, no fee basis.
