Curling accident advice

When you’re looking for curling accident advice it’s good to know that the Accident Advice Helpline team is just a phone call away. Our highly trained advisors can talk through your situation with you and will usually be able to let you know straight away if it’s possible for you to make a compensation claim. They may also be able to estimate the amount of money you could be awarded, making it easier for you to make a good decision. This initial advice is free and you won’t be under any pressure to pursue your claim with us. If you want to think about it and perhaps come back later, that’s just fine – we understand that you may need a bit of space during the aftermath of an accident and we’ll be ready as and when you need us.

Typical curling accidents

Curling is an enormously exhilarating but innately risky sport. Common injuries include the following:

  • Breaks, bruises and strained muscles caused by falls on the ice
  • Crushing injuries from stones
  • Head injuries from falling forwards when moving at speed

Compensation law can only help if an injury isn’t your fault, but coaches and tournament organisers also have some responsibility. If they think, for any reason, that you’re not fit to play (for instance, because you seem too tired), they should pull you out. Trainers are also responsible for making sure you know how to play the game safely, so if you’ve had formal training and have been given bad advice, your trainer could be held responsible for an accident. You might also be able to claim if you’ve been injured because of a problem with your equipment (for instance, because a newly purchased gripper doesn’t work properly) or because the ice was in unacceptably poor condition.

What you need to know

If you’re hurt in a curling accident, you should seek professional medical help – from your GP or a medical doctor – and not just rely on a first aider, because there will need to be a formal record of your injuries if you are to claim compensation down the line. Any compensation claim will need to be made within three years (unless the injured person is a child), so it’s best to get advice as soon as possible if you want a bit of time to consider your options.
