If you have asked the question, ‘Can I claim for a lawn bowls accident?’ you can check with Accident Advice Helpline, an expert firm in personal injury law. Ever since we were established in 2000, we have helped thousands of people to claim financial compensation for injuries that were caused by other people.
Lawn bowls accidents
Lawn bowling is a traditional and relatively fast-paced sport. Although it can be highly competitive, the physical risks of injury are relatively low. You roll the bowling balls along the ground and other people taking part are in their positions, usually well out of harm’s way.
Knowledge of the generally low accident rate is unlikely to comfort you if you have had a lawn bowling accident. You may have suffered serious physical or psychological injuries, impacting on your ability to live your life as you did before the accident.
You may have been struck by one of the bowling balls, played on an unsafe bowling green or have been injured by someone running into you. Another player may have recklessly thrown a ball in your direction, or the bowling green organisers may have inadequately maintained the bowling green you were playing on. You may have stumbled or fallen, breaking your arm or leg.
Who caused your accident?
One of the first things you should do when seeking accident compensation is establish who caused your injuries. Accident Advice Helpline was set up to help people who were injured through no fault of their own. You need to be able to show how someone else was to blame. For example, other bowlers on the green with you at the time may have seen the accident, or there may be CCTV footage that shows how another person was at fault.Open Claim Calculator
When you call us, we will advise you on the likelihood of successfully obtaining accident compensation. If we think you have a valid claim, one of our expert personal injury solicitors who work on a no-win, no-fee basis will go through the details of your case with you. We always try to obtain the best settlement for you.
If the person who caused your accident does not admit his or her culpability, your lawyer will advise you about your best course of action. More evidence to prove the other party’s culpability may be needed to strengthen your claim.
It is also possible that the other person does admit to being at fault. In some cases, your solicitor may advise you to settle early, as this might result in higher compensation. If you are unsure about this, simply check with us so we can tell you which option will give you the strongest claim.
