Cricket Injury Compensation Claims Information
Cricket is among the most popular sports in England and surrounding countries. It has some copies throughout the world, but the game of cricket can be linked to as far back as the 15th century. It is an old game, but no less enjoyable. There is however a significant amount of risk to the players when they engage in a game in which a ball is thrown to a player and then hit by a racket with little more than padding.
How Common Are Cricket Injuries?
The statistics of cricket injuries are dependent upon where the sport is being played along with the precautions taken to prevent injury. It is estimated that 2.6 injuries occur for every 10,000 hours of play on average. In the UK 2 out of every 100 players will actually die from injuries related to cricket, so for those who claim that the sport is not very risky, the statistics prove otherwise.
What Kinds of Cricket Injuries Could I Suffer From?

Frequently Asked Questions
Can I Claim for Collision Injuries?
It is not uncommon to have two people collide while on the cricket field. With the ball going in so many directions and everyone attempting to keep their eye on it, other people can fade from view. That can and will cause two players to collide with one another, a player to trip and fall, or even a collision with the boundary fence. Collision injuries can take a player completely out of a game or out of all games for life depending on the severity of the crash.
Is It Possible to Claim for Head, Neck and Facial Injuries?
Some of the less common, but more serious injuries within the sport of cricket are that of the face, head, and neck. Injuries of these parts of the body can have a severe impact on the livelihood of the afflicted throughout their life. Injuries such as these often require surgery and can sometimes end up costing a player their cricket career as medical science is only able to do so much to heal the injury to such a sensitive part of the body. Between 5% and 25% of players will experience an injury such as these while playing cricket.
Can I Claim for Damage to my Fingers and Arms?

They account for between 19% and 35% of all cricket related injuries.
