Permanent Disablement

David Fulton has allowed the PCA to show footage of how he sustained a serious eye injury, graphically illustrating how easily accidents can occur in our professional game, and how crucial it is to be properly insured.

Fulton said: "There was a very real possibility I might never have played cricket again after the blow in the nets rendered me half blind in my right eye. If this had been the case I would have regretted not having taken out extra units on my insurance policy through the PCA. You always think you're invincible as a professional sportsman but things can happen outside of your control."
