If you have been injured playing croquet and it was not your fault, call Accident Advice Helpline today. We can give you the best croquet accident advice and information on how to make a personal injury claim.
Nothing can sound gentler than playing croquet on a summer afternoon on the lawn before tea. It may seem like the last place you could have an accident. However if you do have an accident and it causes you to suffer financially, you may be entitled to compensation.
What sort of injuries can I claim for?
The short answer is any injury that was caused by the negligence of others and causes you to suffer financially. On the croquet pitch, a common accident is likely to be from trips and falls. Normally a fall is of little consequence, but sometimes you could suffer a twisted limb or a sprain. It could even result in a broken bone, and if you hit something hard, a head or spinal injury.
Anyone who runs a croquet club or event has a responsibility to keep the lawn free of hazards so that everyone can enjoy their game safely. If they fail in this responsibility, then they may be considered negligent.
What should I do?
If you are injured in a croquet accident, you should first seek medical advice. If you decide to make a personal injury claim, medical documentation of your injuries will be important evidence.
When you call Accident Advice Helpline, we will need to know all the details of your croquet accident. It is worth recording these as soon as possible after the accident while they are fresh in your mind. If you can, take a photo of the hazard that caused your accident. If anyone witnessed your accident make sure you get their names and contact details.
Keep records of any expenses or financial losses you incur as a result of your croquet accident. These can range from small items like the cost of a taxi to a medical appointment to large amounts to cover weeks or even months when you were unable to work. These will form the basis of your compensation package.
