Document your accident
To start a claim with us, you need to be able to show how someone else caused your injury. This could be relatively straightforward, as you may have been playing with other people who witnessed your footbag games accident. In addition, many people record games like footbag on their mobile phones or take pictures of it. You may have visual as well as oral evidence that someone else is to blame for your accident.
In addition, it would help your claim if you can ask your doctor for a copy of your medical record. If you had a broken arm or leg, were injured in your eyes or head, or suffered another kind of footbag injury, check that your doctor has updated your medical record before asking for a copy.
You also need to tell us where, when and how your accident happened so that your claim is based as well as it can be on factual details.
Why claim compensation?
By claiming accident compensation, you can obtain the finances you need to meet your continued daily expenses and potentially your medical fees. A severe accident can mean you have to take time off work. Although many employers continue to pay you a salary for a certain period, this can be at a reduced level from your normal wage and can be stopped altogether after this period ends. If you are working freelance, of course, you are unlikely to have any form of financial support.
Claiming compensation for a footbag games accident can make the difference between being able to pay your bills and having serious difficulty making ends meet.
