Lawn bowls accidents
Lawn bowling has a very safe image – a few skilled players out on a sunny day passing the time in a well-played game of bowls. Whilst this can certainly be part of your experience while lawn bowling, it can also be a highly-competitive and fast-paced sport. Although a successful game of lawn bowling requires a lot of skill, sometimes a rapid amount of force is often needed to win.
Despite its image, lawn bowling can be a risky sport. Other people playing may become so competitive as to lose a sense of proportion – you could have been struck by one of the bowling balls, perhaps leading to a fracture or even internal bleeding. The bowling balls are hard objects, which can do serious damage if they strike you in the head or elsewhere.
You could also have been playing on an unsafe lawn at the time of your accident. Most lawn bowling sessions take place on a hired lawn or in a public space, which is maintained by a private owner or the public authorities. The lawn may have been full of holes due to severe rainfall, leading to you trip and fall. If you were playing on a lawn maintained by someone else and with their knowledge, this third party has an obligation to tell you about any dangers. A poorly-maintained bowling lawn could pose unacceptable and even illegal risks.
If someone else caused your lawn bowls injury and you have the proof to support this, you could be able to raise a successful claim for accident compensation.
