Shocking England Match Head Injuries

England v Holland

For many of us who watched the football friendly between England v Holland on 29 February, a shocking moment was the accident between England’s Chris Smalling and the Dutch player Klass Jan Huntelaar.

Hospital Treatment

Both players had to leave the pitch for treatment of their head injuries and attended hospital, though the exact extent of their head injuries is still unknown.  There was no apparent blame for the accidental clash of heads, as both players went to head the ball.

Young Men Most at Risk

This incident is a reminder that within the population generally, young men are most at risk of suffering a head injury and a large number of them will suffer such injuries whilst playing sport even in non-contact games such as football.

What our clients say

We know that we have been extremely fortunate to have had such a consummate PI lawyer in Andy acting on our behalf but we have also been blessed by having had his support, trust, friendship and loyalty throughout. We cannot ever thank him enough.

The compensation Nicola has received has helped her move from a tiny council flat into a massive bungalow which has been specifically adapted. It has enabled her to have a better life.

If it was not for the help of my solicitor I don't know where I would have been today. He provided a great deal of emotional support and secured compensation at various stages from the insurance company to fund my treatment and allow me to live. He was there from start to finish.
