Settlement Agreed in Sports Injury Claim

Curzon Green were successful in securing their client substantial damages in compensation for an injury he sustained during a Judo grading session. The claimant suffered a fracture to his humerus and related nerve damage as a result of a collision with an unpadded brick wall close to the fighting area. The case involved consideration of whether the defendant, a judo club, had followed the relevant health and safety guidelines as recommended by the sport’s governing body. Acting on a no-win-no-fee basis, our solicitors were able to negotiate a five-figure settlement shortly after issuing proceedings, despite the defendant’s denial of liability. Costs will also be recoverable.
