    Marathon accident claim


    If you suffered an accident while running a marathon you may be able to make a marathon accident claim. Whether or not you can make a claim will depend on the circumstances, but you cannot have been responsible for the accident. To make a claim for compensation the accident should have been the fault of a third party, such as another runner or the organisers.

    For instance, another runner could have deliberately tripped you, causing you to fall, or the first aid arrangements by the organisers might not have been up to scratch, leading to you not receiving the correct treatment.

    Why seek compensation?

    Some people don’t think they can make a marathon accident claim, but there is no good reason why this should be, if they were not responsible for the accident. As with any accident the victim will not only have suffered pain and personal injury, but there might also be financial implications. This could be because of time off work, the cost of travel to and from treatment, and in cases that are more serious, personal care and daily assistance.

    A marathon accident claim will not only provide compensation for the pain and suffering, but also help recoup those additional costs caused by the mishap. So long as you were the innocent party, it is only fair, both to yourself and your family that you seek to claim using the best legal expertise possible.

    Seek expert advice

    Whatever the reason for your marathon accident, so long as you were not the cause of it, you may have grounds for a claim. As with any claim, pursuing a marathon accident claim is a legal process so it is in your best interest to seek sound legal advice.
