What comes to mind when you think of monster trucks? You probably think of huge wheels, stunts and crowds of people watching what happens. You’d be right too, since monster trucks are not really seen on the roads. Instead they are seen at specially-organised events that mean you have an opportunity to watch what they can do in complete safety.
Safety is of course paramount at events like these. The crowd should be able to watch what happens and yet be absolutely safe in the event that something goes wrong. This is why organisers take great care to ensure all the appropriate health and safety rules are adhered to when they are planning and executing their event.
When is monster truck injury compensation paid out?
Compensation of this kind might be paid when something happens that causes injury to one or more spectators. For example, if a monster truck runs out of control and crashes into the crowd, it can potentially cause some nasty injuries to those who are caught up in the accident. However there are other injuries that might potentially occur that are of a far less serious nature, but yet could also warrant a monster truck injury compensation payout.
For example, you might be queuing to attend an event like this and be herded into an area that is too small for the people in it. This can lead to panic and crush injuries as people try to get out. Alternatively you might simply slip over on spilled food or drink, causing a sprained ankle or perhaps a cut or other injury to your hand.
How can you tell if you could claim?
Sometimes it is obvious that you have a good chance to make a claim. For instance you may have been in the crowd if a crush incident occurred, or if a truck piled into the stands. On other occasions, perhaps where a less-serious incident happened, you may not be as certain of where you stand.
