Sports and exercise are commonly associated with health and fitness. However, it can also result in injuries which are often simply caused by the nature of the activity and are not due to the fault of someone else. However, sometimes the injury may be avoided and may have been caused due to poor equipment, including equipment which has not been properly maintained. Alternatively, the injury may have been caused by the actions of someone else in a way which you would not expect whist enjoying your chosen sport or whilst exercising.
If you have been injured as a result of any kind of sport which was not your fault, then please do not hesitate to contact a member of our personal injury team who will be happy to help and provide a free consultation.
Court proceedings must normally be commenced within three years of the date of your accident. If Court proceedings are not commenced within the three year period, then your claim will be out of time. Although a Court does have the discretion to allow Court proceedings to be commenced and to continue after the three year period has expired, this must not and cannot be relied on.
If you have any questions as to whether or not your claim may be out of time, then please do not hesitate to give us a call. It is essential you seek legal advice as soon as possible to prevent your claim being out of time.
