    Can I claim if I get injured while watching professional golf?


    Golf competitions draw huge crowds of spectators, but what happens if a day out in the sunshine watching the world’s finest golfers ends in disaster? If you’ve suffered a slip, trip or fall or you’ve been hit by a golf ball while watching a professional tournament, you may be able to make a successful personal injury claim.

    Can I make a claim for an injury sustained while watching professional golf?

    Despite the fact that golf is considered a relatively safe and serene sport, there are still risks involved and if you attend a professional tournament or event, you may wish to take certain dangers and hazards into consideration, such as slippery surfaces, flying objects, including golf balls travelling at speed and obstructions, which may increase the risk of a slip or trip or a nasty fall.

    If you’re injured while watching or playing golf and you are not to blame, you may be eligible for compensation. In order for a claim to be successful, you must demonstrate that your public place injuries were caused by negligence on behalf of a company, an individual or an organisation. If for example, you slipped on a wet floor when somebody had spilled a drink and the spillage was not cleared up or clearly marked, Accident Advice Helpline could help you to claim public liability compensation.

    The benefits of claiming compensation

    Even a minor slip, trip or fall can result in injuries, which may affect your ability to work and cause you to lose out on earnings or even give up your job. You may also be faced with medical costs and pressures related to living costs and household bills in the event that your earnings fall. Compensation for an accident in a public place can help to cover medical and rehabilitation costs and keep you afloat in the event that your income is reduced.

    If you are thinking about claiming compensation for a public place accident, record as much information and gather as much evidence as possible about the incident and call Accident Advice Helpline for more information. We operate a simple and hassle-free claims process and all personal injury lawyers work on a no win, no fee* basis.
