How did your disc golf accident happen?
Disc golf can be a fast game but you also need to play with a great deal of accuracy if you want to win. The game involves throwing a disc at a particular target, often going round a course of targets. The winner is the player who goes round the course by throwing the fewest discs.
The main risk in disc golf is being struck by the disc as it is thrown by another player. You may have had a concussion by being struck in the head by a disc. You may have been hit in the eyes, temporarily or even permanently blinding you. Another risk is that the disc golf course itself may contain dangers. There might be broken trees, which the course owner did not clear away after a storm, or the ground might be boggy or uneven.
To make a claim for a disc golf accident, you need to be able to show that someone else was responsible for your injury. You may have been playing with others who witnessed your accident. Try to find out if they would be willing to support your case: their witness statements need to be unambiguous to help your claim. There may also be video footage of your accident, either from CCTV cameras on the course you were playing on, or because another player was filming you at the time of your accident.
Other evidence that would help your claim includes a copy of your medical record and receipts for any expenses related to your accident.
