Sports & Leisure Compensation Claims

Supporting your claim for compensation

What is involved?

Unfortunately, many accidents occur during the course of everyday leisure and entertainment activities. These can range from slipping accidents in a bar or restaurant, to accidents on fairground attractions, go-karts, and ice-rinks, as well as injuries sustained during sports matches. We can help to put things right.

It is usually someone’s responsibility to keep a particular place safe for visitors. They should also ensure that health and safety regulations are complied with for organised events, shows and sporting activities. If you have had an accident, you may be able to bring a claim either against the owner of the premises or the organiser of an event. Our personal injury lawyers will fight to get you the compensation you deserve.
