If you were injured airsofting, you could be able to make an airsofting accident claim. Airsofting has become increasingly well-known in recent years. The sport, which involves participants firing small plastic pellets at each other using replica firearms, is similar to paintballing, though it does not leave a visible mark when you have been hit. Airsofting usually takes place in outdoor arenas such as a wood. Although airsofting can be great fun, sometimes it can be risky and lead to an accident. If you would like to check your eligibility to claim, and what your claim could be worth, you can contact the expert advisors at Accident Advice Helpline.
The benefits of claiming accident compensation
When you are injured in an accident, the impact on your life can be significant. Your physical or psychological injuries could hinder you from continuing your life in the same way as before the accident. If you were hit by an airsofting pellet, it may have injured your eyes or ears, perhaps leading to temporary or permanent blindness or deafness. You could also have experienced a nasty fall on the airsofting course, leading to a fracture or concussion.
The consequences of your airsofting accident can include medical expenses or time off work. You may not have budgeted for unexpected costs, leaving you significantly out of pocket. If you had to take time off work, your employer may have continued to pay your salary, although in many cases, a full-time salary is cut back after a certain time, or even stopped. Loss of earnings can significantly impact your financial independence.
A successful airsofting accident claim can help you to meet unexpected costs. It can mean the difference between continuing your life in the way you did before the accident, and having to find help from others. It could also mean that your accident is properly recognised by the person who caused it, and help to give you a sense of closure.
Who caused your accident?
Accident Advice Helpline was established in 2000, to help people make claims for accidents they did not cause themselves. The basis for a strong claim includes a clear and provable view of who caused it. Perhaps there is CCTV footage of your airsofting accident, or you have witnesses who can support your claim for compensation. You may have been fired at when it was unsafe to do so, or the airsofting area you were in was badly maintained. When you pay someone for airsofting with their equipment or in their private grounds, you have a legal right to expect safety. The airsofting company may have broken health and safety regulations, strengthening your claim for compensation.
To contact us, you can call our free, 24-hour helpline on 0800 180 4123; when you call, we will go through the details of your airsofting accident with you, to establish if you have a valid claim and what it could be worth. If you have a valid claim, we will then match you with one of our expert no win, no fee lawyers.
