Going to a rugby match should not mean you come home with an injury. If you sustained a serious injury as a spectator you could claim compensation for it. Accident Advice Helpline can help you with your personal injury claim. Perhaps you were not well looked after by the game organisers. Perhaps there were too many spectators, leading to overcrowding or perhaps a volatile situation developed. There could have been a rowdy, violent atmosphere during the match, with the security staff ill-equipped or absent during a time of volatility. Whatever the reason, if your rugby match injury was someone else’s fault, happened to you in the last three years and meant you had to seek medical help or professional psychological counselling, you could be in line for financial compensation.
Should I be able to prove someone else caused my rugby match injury
You should be able to show someone else was at fault for your rugby match accident. Document what you remember of the accident, collect witness statements and ensure they are willing to speak for you if necessary. It would help if you could take photographs of the rugby ground and exactly where you had your accident. Doing this helps others to visualise what happened. Focus on any badly maintained areas or the poor condition of the ground or spectator area at the time of your rugby match accident. Keep any receipts or invoices for fees or expenses relating to your rugby match injuries and write down the names of your doctor, nurses, or counsellor.
