If you’re playing or watching tennis at a stadium that is open to the public, you have a right to assume that you’ll be safe. Sadly, accidents happen. If you’ve sustained an injury at a tennis stadium, and you weren’t to blame, you have every right to consider claiming compensation.
When can you claim for an injury at a tennis stadium
If you’re visiting a tennis stadium which is open to the public, there should be stringent health and safety measures in place to protect you and other visitors from injury. If you sustain an injury at a tennis stadium, and you aren’t liable for your injuries, you should be able to make a claim. Compensation should be approved in scenarios when members of the public were injured as a result of failure to comply with health and safety guidelines on the part of the club or the managing agent responsible for the venue. If a seat was broken, the steps were uneven or the floor was slippery and there were no warning signs in place, for example, this would equate to negligence on the part of the venue owner.
Compensation is only awarded in cases where the individual making the claim was not at fault for the accident, and the accident was caused by somebody else’s negligence. You couldn’t claim if you fell down the stairs because you were trying to text and walk at the same time, for example.
