Going to see a boxing match should not mean you come home with an injury, but if you do you may be entitled to make a boxing venue injury claim. If you sustained an injury as a spectator at a boxing match, you could successfully claim financial compensation for it. Perhaps you were not well looked after by the match organisers, they may have let too many people attend the match, leading to dangerous overcrowding. Perhaps there was a rowdy, even violent atmosphere during the match, with the security staff ill-equipped or absent during a time of volatility. Whatever the reason, if your boxing venue injury was fundamentally someone else’s fault, happened in the last three years and meant you had to seek medical help, you could be due for financial compensation for it.
What do I need to do to prove someone else caused my boxing venue injury?
You need to be able to prove someone else was at fault for your boxing venue injury. Document what you remember, gather as many witnesses as you can and ensure they are willing to speak on your behalf if necessary. It would help your case if you are able to take photographs of the venue and where you were when you had your accident. Taking photographs helps others visualise what happened and you should focus on the badly maintained areas or the poor conditions at the time of the boxing match. Keep all receipts and invoices for expenses relating to your injury and write down the names of the doctor or nurses who attended to your care.
Does it matter when my boxing venue injury happened?
If your boxing venue injury happened in the last three years, Accident Advice Helpline may be able to help you claim financial compensation for it. Your accident may have happened during a match, during a time-out or even during a training session. Essentially, it doesn’t matter precisely where the accident happened; if you were not to blame for it and it had a serious impact on your health, you could potentially claim for it.
