Golf is a very popular hobby. It’s a great way to spend time in the great outdoors and keep fit. If you’re a keen golfer, you’ll be aware of the importance of using the right kit. If you’ve sustained injuries caused by faulty golf clubs, you may be eligible to claim compensation.
What kinds of injuries can be caused by faulty golf clubs?
In golf, it’s essential to use the right clubs. If you hire or buy the wrong clubs, or you unwittingly use faulty golf clubs, you may increase your risk of injury. There are lots of different types of clubs used to play various shots, and it’s wise to get to grips with your technique before you start playing 18-hole rounds.
If you do use faulty golf clubs, you run the risk of injuries, such as:
- Wrist injuries such as strains and sprains
- Overuse injuries
- Cuts, grazes and bruising caused by losing control of the club
Can I make a claim for a golf accident?
If you’ve been involved in a golf accident, and you were not to blame, you may have a case for personal injury compensation. In order to claim compensation, you must be able to prove that you were not at fault and that another individual, the organising body or managing firm, displayed negligence. If you were provided with faulty golf clubs, you drove a golf buggy which was not compliant with safety guidelines or you were injured by another player, for example, you may be able to claim compensation for a golf accident.
