    Go-kart accident advice


    Looking for go-kart accident advice? If so, look no further. Accident Advice Helpline could help you claim financial compensation for a go-kart accident that was not your fault. You may have been injured during a go-kart race, when watching a race with friends, or simply walking through the go-kart venue. The venue or track may have been left in a poor state of repair, with its owners or managers not adequately looking after its maintenance. Perhaps the track was dangerous and badly impacted on other go-kart competitors, or the spectator stands collapsed due to bad upkeep. Whatever the precise reason for your accident, if someone else fundamentally caused it, if it happened in the last three years and it resulted in you having to seek medical help or psychological counselling, you could be in line for financial compensation.

    Go-kart accident advice

    Among the best advice we can give you in preparing your claim is to write down as much as you remember about the incident as possible. Do not delay, as your memory may be weaker than you realise, so start trying to recollect all the important facts as soon as possible.

    Firstly, document the precise factual details of your accident, including the location, time of day, date and year and who else was involved. It would really help your claim if you have witnesses to your accident who can corroborate your account of what happened. All you need to do is make a note of the witness’s contact details; your solicitor will do the rest. You may not have been the only one to be injured in the go-kart accident, especially if the facilities failed during a busy time. Keep a clear and detailed record of your medical history, the name of your doctor or nursing staff and the details of your injuries. Also, keep any receipts or invoices for medical or related expenses relating to you accident.

    Health and safety regulations

    Your go-kart accident may have been caused by negligence on the part of the venue’s owners. To maintain a public venue to the current safety standards is a legal responsibility of all those who operate such sites. Perhaps the seating or standing areas were fundamentally unsafe, there may have been overcrowding, or there may have been a volatile atmosphere created due to a lack of adequate security staff? The truth is that the go-kart track’s management should always look after your safety when you visit the venue. If this did not happen, your claim for financial compensation stands a good chance of being successful.

    Do not feel guilty when looking for go-kart accident advice

    You should not feel guilty about making a claim for financial compensation. If your go-kart accident was caused because of negligence or recklessness on someone else’s part, you will find it easier to instigate a claim. However, someone you know may have injured you, so it may be that you need to balance a sense of loyalty with your own needs.
