A personal injury claim
In June 2004 we received an email from a 27-year-old professional rugby player who told us that he had suffered a serious personal injury while being tackled in a national game. He fell to the ground in considerable pain and was attended to by medics who thought he had sustained a whiplash neck injury. The player that tackled the young man was sent off as the referee suspected foul play then the game continued.
He was then taken to the accident and emergency department of his local hospital and given an X-ray as a matter of priority. The scan revealed that he had actually suffered multiple fractures to his cervical vertebrae and had only just escaped sustaining a spinal cord injury. The severity of the neck injury left dim hopes for his rugby career. Read more about neck injuries.
A team mate visited him in hospital the next day and told him that he knew of someone else who had sustained personal injury when a player performed an illegal move during a game and subsequently made a whiplash claim against the opposing team. Taking his friend's advice, the former-rugby player contacted our claim advisors asking if he could make an injury claim through us.
We replied to his email, informing him that the circumstances under which the sporting accident occurred suggest that he is eligible for personal injury compensation. Our claim advisor told him that we operate on a no win, no fee process and also assured him that it would be totally risk-free, allowing him to focus on the most important thing; getting better.
After he accepted our terms and supplied us with some more details we put him in touch with a Warwickshire personal injury solicitor, making it more convenient for his solicitor to talk him through each stage of the claims process and offer him free legal advice along the way.
The personal injury compensation claim against the opposing team's rugby club was a success and the young man was awarded £25,320 for the neck injury and a further £75,600 for loss of earnings so far. He did not continue to play professional rugby but he did get a job coaching a local team, allowing him to carry on being involved with the sport he is passionate about.
