Footballer receives compensation for poor tackle

As an amateur footballer, our client, Ashley, was participating in a local league football match when he was recklessly tackled by an opposing player, resulting in a severe fracture and dislocation of his right ankle.

He required surgery to pin and plate the ankle and now walks with a slight limp. He continues to suffer with pain and arthritis to his ankle from the injury.

Liability was disputed, however, following medical evidence and negotiations with the local Football Association's insurers, our client's claim settled out of Court for £28,000.
