Football Injury Claims

Mellor Hargreaves will help you to get the football injury compensation you deserve for the injury you didn’t

Playing football at any level can lead to injury. Muscles can be strained, tendons can be torn and bones can be broken. However, when an injury is caused intentionally, the effects can be damaging physically and psychologically. Malicious tackles can cause severe or even life-changing injuries.

If a person has been injured intentionally, they may be eligible to claim compensation against the person who injured them or the opposing football team.

If you have been injured as a result of another player’s negligence, our solicitors at Mellor Hargreaves are experienced in representing clients for all manner of sport’s injuries.

What exactly is a football injury claim?

As well as suffering an injury due to the recklessness of another player, individuals can also claim compensation from a football club if they have not provided a safe playing environment, such as, a pitch free from broken glass or chemicals.

Typical types of football injury claims

  • Poorly maintained pitches causing injuries to legs and ankles
  • Glass on pitch resulting in cuts
  • Malicious tackles
  • Chemical burns from football pitches
  • Inadequate coaching resulting in injuries
