If the third party who caused your accident offers you an early settlement, which may at the time seem highly attractive, your lawyer can also advise you whether to accept it or to persevere with the accident claim.
We will always help you so that you get the best compensation that you deserve.
You may have been injured because another drill participant ran into you, causing you to fall over. Even at a slow pace, a collision with another person could lead you to fall over and break your ankle or wrist.
Exhibition drills often involve replica or even real firearms that could cause injury. If another drill participant was responsible for mishandling a bayonet, sabre or other sharp weapon, your case for compensation could be valid if they accidentally injured you with this.
Document as much as you can remember
You should document as much as you can remember about your exhibition drill accident. Start by noting down who caused the accident and how, and asking whether there are any witnesses to your accident.
There may be CCTV footage of the incident, clearly showing how another person was at fault. Also ask your doctor for a copy of your medical record to share with your personal injury lawyer.
