What do I need to do to make a beach volleyball accident claim?
You may be unsure whether you can make a beach volleyball accident claim. As a general rule, we can help you if your accident happened in the last three years and was caused by someone else.
When you first contact us about your beach volleyball accident, we will review the circumstances of your injury with you. You need to have a clear view of who caused your accident. At this preliminary stage, it is sufficient to give us the details about your accident and any factual details you have about how it happened. This can help us to build a case for compensation and establish what kind of evidence is needed to strengthen your claim.
A volleyball may have struck you because another player threw it without paying proper attention. Given the often highly charged, competitive nature of the game, you may even have been struck intentionally – if another player temporarily lost his or her self-control. Another possibility is that you were playing the game on sand or another surface that was dangerous. Perhaps there were broken objects or hidden pitfalls in the ground. If the playing ground was owned and maintained by someone else, that person or private company has a duty to ensure the area is safe to use.
How to further build your claim for compensation
When you were playing beach volleyball, a spectator or passer-by may have filmed your game. Depending on where you were playing, there may even be CCTV footage of your accident, which the local authority may have kept. Therefore, your accident may be clearly visible in recorded footage, which could enhance your eligibility to make a claim.
Other players, spectators or people who happened to be in the area at the time of your beach volleyball accident may have witnessed what happened. Credible witnesses can help support your claim. Simply talk to one of our advisors when you call, so that we can give you more guidance and advice about this.
Suffering a serious physical or psychological accident could leave you with serious financial obligations. If you have medical fees, accident related travel costs or other expenses, your receipts could also strengthen your ability to make a beach volleyball accident claim. Ensure that you keep as many receipts as possible relating to your accident afterwards. Our professional solicitors work on a no-win, no-fee* basis, so give us a call today to get your claim started!
