Summer is just around the corner, and for many of us, this means getting outside and enjoying fun days out. If it’s sunny outside and you’re a sports fan, there’s no better way to while away an afternoon than going to watch the cricket. If you’re off to watch your local team or you’ve got tickets to a high-profile test, it’s wise to consider where to sit at a cricket match.
Where to safely sit at a cricket match
Cricket is often considered to be a very safe and sophisticated sport, but that doesn’t mean that you don’t run the risk of injury if you’re playing or spectating. If you’re going to watch the cricket, it’s very unlikely that you’ll encounter any problems, but it’s a good idea to think carefully about where to sit at a cricket match.
When you’re going to a county or an international match, you’ll probably have allocated seating, so find your seat and avoid standing around in aisles or stairways. If you’re going to a less formal match on the village green, for example, resist the temptation to get too close to the action. Cricketers hit the ball very hard, and if you get hit, this could result in serious injury. Stick to designated seating or spectating areas, and keep your eyes on the ball.
Can I claim compensation for a cricket match accident?
If you’ve been involved in an accident at a cricket match, you may be thinking about whether or not you’re eligible for compensation. At Accident Advice Helpline, we can provide expert advice for those affected by cricket match injuries. We have an experienced team of personal injury lawyers on hand to discuss the details of your cricket match claim. Compensation is not available to everyone, and there are qualifying criteria in place.
To make a claim for a cricket accident, you must be able to prove that you were not at fault. If you were injured in the stands whilst watching as a result of broken seating provided by the cricket club, for example, you would have a viable personal injury claim. If the accident happened in the last 3 years and you sought medical attention at the time, call us now on 0800 689 0500 or 0333 500 0993 from a mobile phone.
