Sport Injuries Abroad Claims

If you’ve been injured in a sporting accident that was not your fault, out personal injury solicitors may be able to help you claim compensation.

Can I claim for a sports injury that happened abroad?

Whilst on holiday or abroad many of us undertake sporting activities. Sport activities, such as scuba diving, are becoming more common place together with other sports often undertaken on holiday such as golf or tennis.

However, as with sport in the UK, people undertaking these sports sometimes suffer injury as a result of someone else’s fault. Potential claims in such a situation often include:

  • Inadequate supervision and training whilst participating in an organised sport
  • Other competitors failing to comply with the rules of that sport (beyond the risks ordinarily associated with that sport)
  • The provision of inadequate sporting equipment and apparatus

In such a situation, it may be possible for the victim to pursue a claim in England and Wales, for example if the sporting activity was booked as part of a package holiday.

Our team of specialist personal injury solicitors have experience in dealing with a number of different sporting claims abroad. If you wish to discuss such a claim, they would be happy to speak with you. Don’t hesitate to call us 0800 2800 421 or submit an online enquiry form and we’ll get back to you to discuss your air accident claim on a no obligation basis.

How long do I have to bring a sports injury abroad claim?

In most cases, the law which would be applied would be the law of the country where the sporting accident occurred. As such, expert legal advice is recommended. It is also important to note that, as a result of this, time limits for bringing a sports injury claim may be shorter than the time limits for bringing a claim arising out of an accident occurring in the UK.
