You may have recently been injured in a lawn bowls accident, perhaps suffering a serious physical or psychological injury. You may need to make a lawn bowls accident claim to help you pay for your medical fees, accident related expenses or travel costs if you have to regularly visit a hospital or mental health counsellor. Accident Advice Helpline could be of some assistance to you as you recover from your lawn bowls accident. Simply call our free 24-hour helpline on 0800 689 0500 or 0333 500 0993 from a mobile phone to find out how we can help you make a claim for accident compensation.
Who was to blame for your accident?
To make a successful claim for compensation, another person needs to be at fault for your accident. The foundation of a strong case against a third party can include witness statements, photographic or video footage of your accident, your medical records and any receipts for expenses incurred as a result of your injury. If your injuries were so serious that you had to take time off work, your case could also be strengthened.
A poorly-maintained lawn may also lead to accidents. Perhaps the privately-run lawn contained potholes or hidden obstacles which caused you to fall or fracture a leg or arm. If a public authority or club runs the lawn, they are legally bound to ensure it is properly maintained and safe to use. A poorly-maintained public space is a danger to the people who use it, and gives you strong grounds to start a claim for financial compensation.
Someone else playing at the same time as you, may have caused your lawn bowls accident. If another player acted without proper consideration for you and injured you in the process, this could form the basis of an accident claim. The other person may have thrown a lawn bowling ball at you, resulting in serious consequences. Alternatively, the other player may have collided with you due to their lack of care.
