There’s nothing quite like a round of golf to start your day and golf is amongst the most popular sports in the UK. But whether you are an avid spectator or prefer to be out on the course yourself, there are risks involved in playing golf. If you’ve been injured whilst watching or playing golf, perhaps you could make a claim for golf course injury compensation. You’ll find that Accident Advice Helpline provides a 100% no win, no fee* service, so even if you’ve blown the budget on a flashy set of clubs, you can afford to make a claim for golf course injury compensation with us.
What sort of injuries occur on golf courses?
The three most common types of accidents on golf courses are:
- Being injured by another player losing grip of his club
- Slip or trip accidents
- Being hit by a golf ball as a spectator
Whether or not you will be able to make a claim for personal injury compensation will largely depend on who is liable for your accident. It might be that you have been struck by a golf ball or another player’s club, suffering serious head or spinal injuries. They could be held liable for your injuries and you could be awarded a substantial sum in compensation that can fund your rehabilitation or medical costs, providing you with a secure future if you’re unable to return to work.
If you’ve suffered slip, trip or fall injuries – for example damaged ground on the course or a broken step at the club house could lead to an accident – then the golf course management could be responsible. Slip and trip injuries could include back injuries, head injuries, broken bones and even facial injuries, if you hit your face as you fall.
