Cricket injuries – is there a claim

Cricket injuries – is there a claim? That depends on how the injuries happened. If you read this article and you’re still unsure, give our team at Accident Advice Helpline a call – they’re available on 0800 689 0500. In most cases they’ll be able to let you know straight away if you have a legally valid claim.

Our advisors will never pressure you, but if you decide that you’d like our help in making a claim, they will be happy to provide a suitably skilled solicitor. Instead of relying on general solicitors, we prefer to have specialists because we know that this increases your chances of success. All of our solicitors work on a no win no fee* basis, so you won’t need to worry about finding lots of money up front.

What makes a claim valid with regards to Cricket injuries?

The rules for claiming compensation are straightforward. Firstly, in almost all cases, a claim must be made less than three years after the accident happened. Secondly, a claim can only be made if a doctor treated the injuries caused by the accident, or another suitably qualified professional treated them. A graduate physiotherapist, such as some cricket clubs have on their staff, will usually count (check to make sure), but a first aider usually won’t.

On top of this, you will only be able to claim successfully if the accident was demonstrably the fault of someone else. This means that if you simply stumbled on even ground, there is not much that the law can do to help you. If you think you might have a borderline case, however, do give us a call, because sometimes it’s not immediately apparent where the responsibility lies.

Cricket injuries 

It is possible to claim compensation for cricket injuries – for instance, if you fell because the ground had been poorly maintained, if a bowler directly aimed the ball at your body, or if you were given a substandard bat. You may also be able to claim if you were just learning the game and were asked to do something you hadn’t been properly prepared for, such as swinging the bat in the wrong way and damaging you arm as a result.

In all cases, you’re more likely to be able to claim successfully if you can persuade people to come forward as witnesses. Don’t take statements from them yourself – just collect their details and your expert lawyer will take it from there. A solicitor will also be able to handle most of the paperwork, so you won’t need to worry about the complex aspects of the case. You can concentrate on your recovery.
