Every year, thousands of us enjoy basking in the sunshine and watching the action at the stumps. For most people, a day at the cricket is a chance to have fun spend time with friends and family and watch the pros firing shots, bowling at lightning speed and making incredible catches. For others, however, a fun day out can quickly turn nasty. If you are hit by a cricket ball whilst watching a game, for example, you’ll soon know about it. Cricket accidents, although uncommon, can be very dangerous.
Can you claim if you are hit by a cricket ball whilst watching a game?
If you’ve been hit by a cricket ball whilst watching a game, you may end the day with serious injuries which can have long-term effects. Although there’s not a huge amount that can be done to prevent freak accidents at a cricket ground, you may still be able to make a claim for compensation. If you can prove that somebody else was liable for your injuries, you may have a viable cricket accident claim. If you believe that the relevant safety steps to prevent a cricket accident haven’t been taken by players or the firm or club in charge of the venue, you have a right to claim cricket accident compensation.
Have I got a viable personal injury claim?
Personal injury compensation is not just handed out to everybody who sustains an injury. To claim compensation for a cricket accident, for example, you would have to prove that you were not at fault for the injuries you sustained and that somebody else was negligent, and this contributed to the accident.
If you’ve been injured in the last three years and you believe that your accident occurred as a result of negligence on the part of somebody else, Accident Advice Helpline could help you make a no-win, no-fee* claim. If you have evidence to support your claim, such as eyewitness statements and medical reports, our personal injury lawyers can use this to back up your injury claim.
