For free, expert boat race injury advice, you can contact the specialists at Accident Advice Helpline. Taking part in a boat race can take a lot of training and preparation. Competing against one or more boat race teams can require a lot of concentration, willpower and stamina. Sometimes boat races can go wrong due to unforeseen circumstances on the water or due to a moment of oversight or aggression by one of the other teams.
You may have been involved in a boat race collision, capsized or been struck by one of the oars. You may also have been one of the boat race spectators, suffering an injury on the shore, perhaps due to overcrowding.
Get the boat race injury advice to suit you
Most people are unaware of their legal rights following an accident. In general, the law allows you to make a claim for accident compensation if your injury happened in the last three years and was caused by someone else. At Accident Advice Helpline we have been giving free accident advice since 2000. We can give you free boat race injury advice, helping you to understand your ability to make an accident claim. However, you do not have to make a claim with us to be able to speak with us. You may simply wish to speak with a professional advisor about your boat race accident in order to check your options. You are under no obligation to us after receiving our free boat race injury advice.
Call us to find out more
When you call us we will ask you about the circumstances of your boat race accident. We can advise you about your legal rights, whether you were a boat race participant, spectator or one of the organisers. If you are interested to start a boat race accident claim we will check what kind of evidence exists to support your case. Some of the things we will go through with you include:
- The details of your boat race injury. We need to establish what the effect of the accident was on your health. You could have suffered a physical or psychological trauma: both kinds can give you the potential basis for a successful accident claim.
- Who witnessed your injury. You may have been struck in a collision or by one of the oars: one of your team mates, a competing team member, spectator or someone else could have a clear recollection of what happened to you.
- What kind of evidence exists to support a potential boat race injury claim. Evidence can include a spectator’s video or photographs of your accident.
