A roller derby can be a great time for socialising, listening to music and generally having fun. However, the mixture of high speed roller-blading and lots of people can mean that accidents such as slips, trips and falls can and do occur. If you’re injured in a roller derby can you make a claim?
When can you make a slip, trip or fall or other claim after an injury in a roller derby?
If you’re injured in a roller derby due to negligence by the company, you may be able to make a slip, trip or fall injury claim. This could be due to anything from a damaged tile on the floor to trailing wires on the ground.
Even if you sustain a slip injury from a spillage that was reported to the management and had been neither cordoned off or cleaned up, there could be grounds to make a slip, trip or fall claim.
When can’t you make a claim after sustaining an injury in a roller derby?
Any slip, trip or fall accident that was caused by such things as losing your balance or colliding with another skater would not be a reason for making a claim. Most roller derby and sports centre may ask you to sign an accident waiver before getting on your skates. This means that any slip, trip or fall you have whilst roller-blading will not be the company’s fault.
