How much can you claim?
What’s the process of making an accident claim with Shires Law?
Thousands of accidents happen each year in a variety of public places, such as on public transport, in public buildings, on parks or playgrounds, restaurants and shopping centres. A lot of these accidents could have been avoided had proper precautions been taken in the first place, generally speaking there will always be somebody or an organisation with which the responsibility lies to maintain a public place. If you have had an accident in a public place that you feel was due to neglect then our injury solicitors can help you to make a financial claim.
Many injuries are caused by somebody else failing to provide you with a safe environment, common examples include:
- Faulty/unmaintained equipment at your local gym
- Unqualified trainers
- A violent/malicious competitor
- Inadequate warm up routines
- A trainer pushing a sportsman too hard
Injuries sustained during sporting activities can take on many forms, some of which are:
- Fractures and breaks
- Muscle/ligament damage
How Much Could You Claim?
Sport injury claims can be rewarded with a variety of compensation amounts largely dependent on the severity of the injury you have suffered. An example of a typical payout for a simple Colles fracture would be in the region of £4,000 and a more serious injury, such as one resulting in paraplegia could be anywhere between £210,000 and £265,000. If you would like a more accurate assessment of your particular injury then our sports injury solicitors are on hand to help.
Length Of Claim
The length of proceedings is again very much dependent on the injury although our sport injury solicitors make it their priority to settle claims as quickly as possible. As a general rule, less severe injuries can be settled within a few months when the other party admits liability quickly. When liability is disputed it can result in court action and a longer claim. More serious injuries often warrant the use of extensive medical evidence and as such can take longer to settle.
