Football Injury Compensation Claim due to pothole
Our client was at a football training session with his Under 12s team when he suffered injuries which led to this Football Injury Compensation Claim. The team were asked to run a lap around the outside of the football pitch to warm up. As our client was running with the rest of the team, he went into a deep hole which was hidden by grass, fell forwards and broke his left arm. He instructed us to make a Football Injury Compensation Claim on his behalf as it was an accident which could have easily been avoided.
Liability/Blame for this Football Injury Compensation Claim
This Football Injury Compensation Claim was made against the local Council for failing to inspect the football pitch before letting children play football on them. We argued that the Council failed to:
Carry out appropriate risk assessments and physical checks of the playing field
Carry out appropriate risk assessments for the route round the playing field where the children were told to run
Provide a safe running route
Have a reasonable system of inspection to check the playing field was safe for visitors
Fill in the hole to make it safe
Our client suffered a serious sports injury as a result of this avoidable accident. The last thing he wanted to do was make a Football Injury Compensation Claim but because he suffered such serious injuries he felt he had no option. We proved that the Council failed to keep our client safe and will successfully secure Football Injury compensation for him.
