    Injured at a cricket match?

    During the summer, many cricket fans travel all over the UK to get a glimpse of their favourite team in action. One of the most popular grounds to visit is The Oval but cricket fans can be found at Emirates Old Trafford in Manchester, Trent Bridge in Nottingham, Lord’s in London and Headingley in Leeds among others. As each cricket ground can attract a large number of spectators during the cricket season, accidents can happen. Although they are few and far between, they can happen and it is wise to stay aware of your surroundings to help prevent a serious injury.

    What accidents can occur at a cricket match?

    Slips, trips and falls are common in a cricket stadium, but other accidents and injuries can occur. Some of these include:

    • Falls from height
    • Being hit by objects
    • Slipping on spillages
    • Tripping over obstructions
    • Being injured by crowds
    • Aggressive or rowdy spectators

    Many people are rushing to get to their seat to avoid missing the match therefore, accidents can occur. Crowd control must be in place and security staff must ensure that any rowdy crowd members are removed. Of course, it is difficult to look after everyone in a cricket stadium, especially during a big match, so try to follow any instructions from staff and don’t ignore any areas which have been cordoned off. If you have not followed instructions or have acted carelessly, then any accidents which occur cannot be blamed on the stadium. However, if you have been cautious and feel that the stadium was at fault for any accidents or injuries sustained while at a cricket match, then you may be able to win a cash sum.

    What kind of compensation could I receive?

    Accident Advice Helpline has a 30-second online test you can take which will generate a quick compensation quote for you. Just enter a few details such as when the injury occurred, what type of injury you sustained and your details and we will get back to you. As we follow a strict no win, no fee** rule, we will not ask you for any cash upfront for our advice and you are under no obligation to pursue the claim. However, if you do continue with us, we will contact any third parties for you and present your case to the party at fault. Ensure you keep any evidence of the incident to help us build a strong case and increase the chances of winning you a cash sum.
