Rugby Injury Claims

Advice and Assistance from Cohen Cramer

Claim for Your Rugby Injury


Sports injury law is a niche area of personal injury law that is often overlooked, however, if you have sustained an injury whilst enjoying the sport you love, you may be entitled to claim compensation.

Gone are the days where sports injuries are considered “part and parcel of the game” and if you have been hit off the ball, the victim of a dangerous tackle or a punch, you may be entitled to compensation.

Examples of incidents that may allow you to bring a claim are if you are assaulted by another player in an off-ball incident or are punched in the face following a tackle, a pass or drop goal and suffer a broken jaw this should never be considered “part and parcel of the game”.

Why should you lose out financially through no fault of your own? It is not part of the game and never has been – that’s why following such incidents a red card and an early bath is in order – but if you are unable to play or to work for a number of months as a result of the injury, who is going to pay your mortgage? The player sat in the early bath? Unlikely…   Why should you lose out financially through no fault of your own?

In an instance like this we would attempt to recover an award of compensation from the club of the player who assaulted you; this substantially increases the chance of receiving payment of any settlement or court order for payment.

You may suffer injury as a result of something other than a direct assault upon you such as:

  • defective equipment leading to injury
  • poor refereeing skills that allow an incident and injury to occur
  • uneven playing surface such as a defect in an astroturf surface causing a trip or fall.

This is where we can help.

We can bring a claim for personal injuries seeking compensation for both your financial losses and compensation for the injury itself, meaning you do not lose out – not even, for the love of the game…
