Have You Been Injured?

Many sports injuries involve broken or fractured bones and damage to soft tissues such as ligaments and cartilages.

They can be caused by dangerous tackles (or even assaults) in team games such as football or rugby.

Injuries can also be caused by defective sports equipment, dangerous pitch conditions or negligence by coaching and medical staff.

‘Playing through the pain barrier’ for long periods can make minor injuries worse – with serious long term effects. Managers and coaches who encourage this could be negligent in their duty of care.

Other sports injuries include:

  • motorsports crashes – motor racing, motorcycling, karting
  • cycling – crashes (often involving broken collarbones), Achilles tendonitis (caused by excessive training and racing)
  • boxing, martial arts – serious injuries caused by illegal punches, kicks and holds.

Concussion Compensation Claims

Concussion and Post Concussion Syndrome are recognised brain injuries. They are resulting in significant compensation claims around the world.

There is increasing concern about concussion in boxing/martial arts, rugby and American football (where the NFL has settled a $1 billion compensation claim).

Coles Miller is recognised for its expertise in helping victims of sports injuries. Our legal team includes Crispin Cormack, a former rugby international.
