Grand Prix safety obligations
All Grand Prix events, including those at the Silverstone racecourse in Northamptonshire, are expertly managed, stewarded and marshalled to meet stringent health and safety requirements. The well-being of spectators is rightly the top priority of the organisers, but sometimes things do still go wrong. Examples could include crush injuries, scalding or food poisoning due to the carelessness of a catering supplier, tripping over objects left unattended in a public causeway, or an accident caused by a drunk or belligerent member of the public. In such cases, you could have grounds for a compensation claim, but you must be able to prove that the accident was the fault of a third party. If the organisers did not meet their health and safety responsibilities, then they will have an insurance policy to cover any claims. Individuals can also be liable to pay compensation to an injured party, though they will probably have to pay out in smaller instalments.
Making a claim
In addition to proving that your accident was the fault of a third party, you will also need your injuries verified by a recognised medical authority, such as a doctor. The accident must have happened no longer than three years ago, and ideally you should be able to provide impartial witnesses who can testify that your accident was the fault of a party other than yourself. Physical or psychological after effects of the accident can also be taken into account when calculating the value of your claim, but these too must be verified by a qualified medical practitioner.
