It depends on cause. Of it was an accident, like a sports injury, then no, you shouldn't sue. If it was neglect on someone's part, then you have every right to sue.

I worked in a factory that produced steel file cabinets. While I was there, I cut myself several times (sheet metal is sharp and can cut through work gloves) and never considered suing. If I had been badly injured because a machine had not been maintained, and could no longer work, I probably would have sued. In that case the injury could have been avoided if the company had done what they were legally required to and maintained the machines in a safe manner.

First step if you take a job is you have to know what kind of job that you are working. Don't take the risky job even if you are experienced in it. I don't agree with that, who wants to get hurt without any cure or insurance at all? No one wants. So, it's the main objective for the company to provide more safety equipment in work.

Football is a PHYSICAL sport - people get hurt. If a player can't handle it then they should not play. They get millions and then want to sue when the inevitable happens. It's ridiculous.
