If you’ve been injured while watching or playing a game of cricket, you could have a case for personal injury compensation. If you suffered injuries as a result of slips, trips or falls, you were struck by a ball or you developed an illness after eating at a public cricket ground, call Accident Advice Helpline for information relating to making a public liability claim.
Can I claim for an injury sustained while watching a cricket match?
If you were injured in a public place, such as a cricket ground whilst watching a cricket fixture, and you were not to blame for the accident, you may have a case for compensation. If you believe that your injuries were caused by negligence on behalf of an individual or an organisation, such as a cricket club, and you have evidence to support this notion, the expert personal injury lawyers at Accident Advice Helpline may be able to secure a public place injury claim.
Examples of claims, which may be approved, include:
- slipping on a wet floor, which is not clearly marked with a warning sign
- food poisoning caused by improper storage or cooking techniques at a public food outlet
- injuries caused by overcrowding
- injuries caused by slip and trip obstructions
- injuries caused by poorly-maintained seating
What should I do next?
At the time of a public place accident, it is essential to report the incident to a steward and the accident should be recorded by the club; subsequent investigations should be carried out and regular risk assessment should be enforced to make sure a similar incident does not occur in the future. You should see a doctor so that your injuries can be assessed and recorded in your medical notes; you should also provide a statement to outline what happened and ask eye witnesses to note down their version of events.
