Have you been injured on a golf range in an accident that was not your fault? Accident Advice Helpline offers golf range injury advice for those wishing to pursue a personal injury claim for an injury sustained in an accident on a golf range.
Accidents can happen on a golf range in many ways. One common type of accident that occurs on a golf range is a slip, trip or fall. One way this may happen is if a golfer trips or falls over equipment or other items that are left lying around. Another way is when a golfer slips on ground that is wet, uneven or otherwise potentially hazardous, but notice of these conditions was not properly displayed. It is the responsibility of the golf range operators to ensure that all the correct health and safety precautions are adhered to in order to create the safest possible environment for visitors to the golf range.
If you or someone you know has been the victim of an accident on a golf range, contact Accident Advice Helpline as soon as possible after the accident to find out your rights and learn the steps involved in the personal injury claim process.

Par for the course
If you are injured in an accident on a golf range, you should immediately seek the help of a medical professional in order to get your injury treated. Your well-being is the most important thing to focus on. It will also help your case, because the records produced by the medical treatment is valuable evidence that will aid our specialist law team in securing the maximum possible compensation available to you. If possible, you should also be sure to get photographs of your injuries before and after receiving medical treatment. If you are at the golf range with friends, ask them to help you get photographs of your injuries and of the area where the incident occurred. Photographic evidence gives the case more weight, as the circumstances surrounding the claim can be seen more clearly.
The golf course itself should also record the details of the accident. It is required by law that any incident that causes injury should be recorded in an accident logbook. The details of the accident should be taken down exactly as they happened, including any steps taken by golf range staff and details of your admittance for professional medical help.
Witnesses to the accident should be asked if they are willing to testify as to what they saw of the accident. Having witnesses helps Accident Advice Helpline‘s expert legal team support your case for a claim for compensation. All of our specialist solicitors operate on a strict no-win no-fee* basis.
