    Duty of care

    Sporting event organisers have a duty of care to protect athletes and spectators from the possibility of serious injuries. They must follow strict rules and regulations to ensure any equipment or surface is safe for use. If they fail to follow these measures, then you can make a claim against them if their negligence resulted in an accident. Common sporting injuries range from broken bones and muscle strains to head injuries and concussion. For example, you may have been an official at a sports event and been struck by a javelin. The impact and velocity of such apparatus can cause serious wounds and have a lasting psychological impact. It is your right to seek a monetary sum if someone else was at fault for any of your injuries. You should not be forced to cover personal losses. It will also bring a sense of justice and ensure that negligent third parties are made to pay in some way for their actions. It can also ensure that the same accident does not take place again.

    Report the incident

    If you have been injured at an athletics event, then we recommend notifying a member of the staff immediately. To be eligible for compensation, you must also have received medical attention at the time of the accident, and it must have take place during the last three years. When you have recovered, you should write down all the details about the accident, including the exact time, and report accounts from any witnesses that were present. All of this information will enable our solicitors to build a successful claim.
