The risks of playing disc golf
Disc golf involves throwing a frisbee-like disc at a target. It is often played competitively, with the winner of the game being the person who threw the fewest discs round a course. The obvious risk in disc golf is of being struck by one of the discs. If you are hit in the head by a disc you could suffer a concussion or faint and injure yourself by falling on a hard object. You could also be hit in the eyes or other sensitive part of your body.
As with most competitive sports, you could also be placed at risk by another player’s enthusiasm or loss of concentration. Someone may have run into you or pushed you over accidentally. Another player may have been so focussed on their own performance that they ignored your presence; in another scenario, a player may even have lost their temper and injured you on purpose.
Proving someone’s culpability for your accident
Proof of someone else’s culpability forms the basis of a successful accident claim. You need to have a clear understanding of who caused your accident and how you can prove this to others. You can do this by gathering witness statements or checking whether someone filmed your accident. The owners of the course you were playing on may have CCTV footage from the time of your accident, clearly showing how someone else injured you. To find out more about what you need to start a claim, simply call us on our free helpline: 0800 180 4123.
