Competition or fun
Beach volleyball is often informally arranged as a fun activity on a day at the beach. It can also be more formally arranged by holiday companies or even as a competitive sport. If your beach volleyball accident was not your fault and it has caused financial problems for you, you may decide to make a personal injury claim. This will mean you need to decide who is negligent.
Injuries during an informal game could include a laceration from jumping on glass, or a trip from a hole in the beach. Depending on who is responsible for safety on the beach it may be possible to prove that this accident could have been avoided.
If your volleyball game was formally arranged the organisers have a responsibility to make the activity as safe as possible. This means ensuring that you perform an appropriate warm up before starting to minimise the risk of sprains and back or neck strain. They should also check the court to ensure that it is free from sharp objects, obstacles and anything else that could cause an injury.
If you are not sure if a third party is responsible for your accident call Accident Advice Helpline. Our knowledgeable advisors will be able to confirm if you are eligible to make a personal injury claim.
What to do in the event of an accident
If you are injured playing beach volleyball the most important thing to do is to seek medical advice. Hopefully with the correct treatment you will quickly recover from your injuries. If you need to make a personal injury claim, medical records of your injury will be needed as evidence to support your claim.
Record as much detail as you can about your accident and get the names and contact details of any witnesses. Your lawyer may need to talk to them. If you are on a day out it is likely that you have a camera or have one on your phone. If so, take a photograph of the hazard that caused your accident. Let your solicitor know if anyone else was filming or taking pictures of the beach volleyball game so a copy can be obtained if necessary.
