You have come to the right place if you are looking for expert boat race accident claim advice. If you were injured during a boat race, you may be looking to enquire about your legal rights. One of our team of specialist advisors at Accident Advice Helpline can assess your ability to make a claim and estimate what it could be worth. You could be able to make a claim against another boat race participant, a spectator, someone passing by or against the boat race organisers themselves.
Can I make a boat race accident claim?
Your ability to make a boat race accident claim depends on the circumstances of your accident. Typically, Accident Advice Helpline can help people whose accidents happened in the last three years and were caused by someone else. We have been a trusted personal injury advisor since our establishment in 2000. For many years, our team of no win, no fee* lawyers has helped thousands of innocent accident victims.
Making a short list of the factual details of your injury can help you start to focus on making a boat race accident claim. Most successful accident claims are based on evidence to show that someone else was to blame. This can include:
- Witnesses, who can support your memory of what happened to you. You may have participated in a boat race and fallen out of the boat or been struck by a team mate’s or competitor’s oar. You may have been spectating, with the crowd suddenly becoming too large, as the organisers allowed too many people to enter. You may need witnesses to prove that you were not to blame for your accident.
- Your medical record. Your boat race injury may have been physical or psychological or both. Proving the extent and nature of your injuries can be done with your updated medical record, which you can obtain from your GP.
- Video footage or photographs. As with most sporting events, there are likely to have been several people filming or taking photographs of it. One of these people may have recorded your boat race accident, which could help you to make a successful boat race accident claim.
What are the benefits of making a boat race accident claim?
When you are seriously injured in an accident you can find yourself badly affected. You may be in lasting physical pain, experience psychological side effects and find yourself unable to live in your accustomed way. You may even have to stop working, which could impact on your financial independence.
Making a successful boat race accident claim can give you financial reassurance and the knowledge that the person at fault for your accident has formally recognised culpability. You can use a successful claim to pay towards any accident-related medical expenses or your normal cost of living.
