Cricket, a leisurely afternoon playing a gentleman’s game. Sometimes, this vision does not match reality and you may need to make a cricket injury claim. Indeed, playing cricket can be fast and furious, with plenty of rivalry and perhaps even malice on the opposing team. Unfortunately, sustaining a cricket injury can be caused not simply due to a genuine accident, but by someone else’s recklessness, negligence or bad behaviour. Playing cricket can be relaxing and great fun, but you should not feel bound to suffer in honourable silence if you suffered an injury that was caused by someone else.
What do I need to do to prove someone else caused my cricket injury?
To successfully claim financial compensation for a cricket injury, you should be able to prove another’s culpability. Document as much as you know about your personal injuries, writing down what happened and when, noting down as many details as you remember. It would help your case if you can gather witnesses who have a strong recollection of what happened and who have a strong credibility themselves. Also, it would help to take photographs of the location and equipment you used, so that you can show others precisely where things happened and what the outcome of it was.
Does it matter where my cricket injury happened?
Accident Advice Helpline can help you pursue financial compensation for your cricket injury if it was caused by someone else, required medical attention and happened in the last three years. Your accident may have happened during a game, offsite or even during training away from your regular playing ground. It does not matter precisely where your accident happened; if you were not to blame for it and it had a serious impact on your health, you could potentially claim compensation for it.
