Injuries resulting from participation in sports and leisure activities can range from simple twists and sprains to catastrophic, life-changing conditions. The nature of the activity itself is not necessarily a guide to the seriousness of the accident which can result in:
soft tissue and muscular injuries
ligament damage to the knee
spinal cord injuries.

A serious head or spinal injury caused by participation in a sport or adventure activity can have a drastic impact on the accident victim’s lifestyle and ability to earn a living and that is why you should talk to an experienced personal injury solicitor as soon as possible.
Holiday tour companies, hotels, sports facility operators, sports trainers, fitness coaches and leisure activity organisers all have a statutory duty to identify and reduce all unnecessary risk.
Claiming compensation for sports and leisure injuries at home and abroad
If you or a member of your family have been hurt or injured as the result of a sporting or leisure activity accident anywhere in Scotland or if you have been hurt on holiday abroad, Bonnar Accident Law can help you claim compensation on a No Win – No Fee basis.
You should gather as much photographic and witness evidence as possible and you should write down everything that happened to you while the details are still fresh in your mind. Family and friends can often be very helpful with their recollection of events.
