Injury Claim Forms
MEMO 11th May 2022
What is the Injury Fund?
The LGFA Injury Fund is an injury fund, set up to assist members with some reimbursement for medical expenses incurred due to an injury sustained during ladies Gaelic football. It is NOT an insurance policy. There is no insurance company involved in any way with the Fund and therefore there is no insurance policy number associated with the LGFA Injury Fund.
There is no legal obligation on the LGFA to administer such a Fund. It is the responsibility of all members to ensure that they have sufficient financial resources for any treatment they wish to pursue due to an injury. If a player is covered under another source, they must claim through that source first – i.e., private medical insurance (VHI, LAYA, Irish Life) or School Insurance.
Rules pertaining to the LGFA Injury Fund are covered in the Official Guide Rule 67 to Rule 91. All members should make themselves aware of these Rules.
The preliminary claim form should be scanned and emailed to the Dublin LGFA office within 8 weeks of the injury occurring - firstname.lastname@example.org
Should the injury have occurred at an organised Dublin LGFA fixture - Dublin will submit a copy of the match report directly to Amy Coll the LGFA Injury fund administrator.
If the injury happened at a club training session the club Secretary will be asked to submit a letter on club headed paper confirming this to be the case.
The LGFA do not accept electronic versions of the final claim form or receipts these should be posted to the Dublin LGFA office for signing off on;
