    How to claim athletics stadium injury compensation

    Athletics stadiums are purpose-built venues that are designed to provide somewhere for track and field competitions to take place. Athletes can also practise somewhere safe and well maintained that is designed specifically for their types of sports.

    While it is uncommon for things to go wrong at a stadium like this, there have been occasions in the past where Accident Advice Helpline has handled athletics stadium injury compensation claims. In these situations the facts of each case will be looked at to determine how the injuries were incurred, and whether someone was negligent in their duties.

    Injuries to competitors or spectators

    You might think competitors at an athletics event would be more prone to injury than the spectators who are watching them. This would indeed be the logical thing to think. However in rare cases a spectator might receive an injury if some part of the stadium was not in good condition.

    For example, the steps leading down to the seating may not be level or they could even be loose if they are old and neglected. This could cause you to lose your footing and hurt yourself in a fall. Alternatively you could be injured if those in charge allow lots of people into one area of seating without properly managing the flow.

    This could potentially lead to crush injuries being suffered by several people at the front. These can potentially be fatal, and even if the person survives they may incur nasty injuries and mental anguish and suffering as well.
