    Can I claim for an injury at a cricket match

    Can I claim for an injury at a cricket match

    Accident Advice Helpline could help you claim financial compensation for a cricket match injury if someone else caused it. Perhaps you were injured as a spectator at a heavily attended cricket match, with its organisers allowing entry to too many spectators. The cricket match grounds may have been left in a bad state, with its public facilities hazardous or risky. Whatever the cause of your accident, if it was essentially due to someone else, happened in the last three years and meant you had to seek medical help or professional counselling, you could potentially claim financial compensation for it. Visit Accident Advice Helpline website for free, impartial advice on your personal injury claim.

    You shouldn’t feel guilty for raising a claim for financial compensation

    Don’t feel guilty about raising a claim for financial compensation. If your cricket match injury was sustained because of negligence or recklessness, you may find it easier to raise a compensation claim. You may also have been injured by someone you know, in which case a personal loyalty may be preventing you from starting a claim. Balance your personal loyalty with your daily life after the accident. You may now be experiencing significant physical distress or psychological damage. This may have a detrimental impact on your ability to relate to others in the way you are used to. Your friendships, family or professional life may be negatively impacted by what happened.

    Cricket match injury advice

    One of the best pieces of advice in preparing your cricket match injury claim is to document what you know. Don’t delay in writing it all down. This is especially important if it was some time ago, as memory can sometimes fail or be less accurate than you might think. Start by recollecting the precise cause of your accident and who was directly involved in it. You might need others’ help, especially if they clearly witnessed what happened. You may not have been the only person to be affected, especially if it involved faulty facilities that may have failed during a busy time. Also, keep a record of your medical history, the name of your doctor or nursing staff who helped you and the precise nature of your injuries. Keep receipts and invoices for any medical or related expenses incurred as a result of your accident.

    Health and safety regulations

    Your cricket match injury could have been caused by criminal negligence. Maintaining a public venue is a duty for those hosting public events, including sporting and entertainment ones. The spectators’ area could have collapsed, spectators may have suffered from an overcrowded venue or perhaps there was a boisterous atmosphere that erupted into violence and was not checked in time by the security staff. The truth is that hosting a public event obliges its organiser to ensure the health and safety of those attending. If this did not happen, your claim for financial compensation stands a good chance of being successful. Contact us at 0800 180 4 123 for free, impartial advice.
