If you are a young person and have recently been involved in a serious accident at a youth club then you may be asking yourself, ‘Can I claim for an accident at a youth club?’ Individuals that have been injured while attending a youth club have the same right to claim for compensation as any other injured person. The only requirements are that you meet a three-year deadline and that the accident was the fault of a third party. You must also have been treated at a hospital, by medical staff at the scene or by your GP. To find out whether you are eligible, call our 24-hour free helpline on 0800 689 0500.

Youth club injuries
Thousands of youngsters aged 21 and under participate in physical activities at youth clubs around England, Wales and Scotland. These clubs offer personal development and friendship to young people but like any other premises, there can be the possibility of accidents. The majority of accidents are harmless with no one to blame, but there can also be occasions when negligence from a third party can result in devastating consequences for a young person.
Slips, trips, and falls are the most common types of personal injuries. These can occur due to a lack of foresight or planning by the volunteers and other workers at a youth club. For example, if you fell over a structure or object that should not have been there, then you can make a claim if you sustained serious injuries. You may also have been asked to perform a task such as packing away equipment on your own that actually required two or more people to do safely.
The local authority or building owner may be liable if a member of staff was negligent and you were injured. We recommend that you notify a person of authority at the youth club about the accident and your injuries within two days. The youth club is likely to keep an accident book on site so make sure all the details about the accident are written down. This information can be crucial in helping our expert solicitors to prove the negligence of a third party.
A compensation claim with Accident Advice Helpline can help you and your family to cope with the consequences of a personal injury, so get in touch with us today to start the process. We are eager to use our knowledge and expertise to make your life better.
