Whilst jogging is a highly recommended activity, one which tones the body and strengthens the heart and lungs, there are various ways in which it can end in injury – particularly if the chosen environment has not been properly maintained. If you are the victim of an outdoor jogging injury, you may be eligible to file an outdoor jogging accident claim.
The vast majority of these accidents are indeed a result of badly maintained public spaces. They occur because hazardous litter (such as glass and tin cans) haven’t been removed; fallen tree branches and other natural debris haven’t been cleared. They can also occur as a result of warped or cracked surfaces that become slippery in winter.
Where do I go if I am a victim?
If you have been the victim of an outdoor jogging accident, that has occurred within the last three years, and is the result of the negligence of a third party, you may be eligible to file for financial compensation. If this sounds like you, it could be time to pick up the phone and talk to the expert solicitors at Accident Advice Helpline.
With over 14 years of personal injury claims experience, and an enviable reputation for winning tough litigation cases, we are here to help you make the transition from a victim to the vindicated. We do not believe that you should suffer, either physically or financially, as the result of an accident which was not your fault.
How do I make a claim?
Our solicitors operate on a no win, no fee* basis, in order to secure you the highest possible amount of financial remuneration. Our solicitors have worked with personal injury claims of all shapes and sizes, and know the best way to proceed with an outdoor jogging injury case.
The only thing that you have to do is pick up the phone, call Accident Advice Helpline on 0800 180 4123 and ask for a free consultation. This consultation consists of just six short questions, designed to assess the viability of your case. We refuse to work with a ‘one size fits all’ approach to personal injury claims, and we will only take on your case if we believe that it is winnable.
What information do I need to give?
If we do proceed with your case you will be asked to recall as much detail about your outdoor jogging accident as possible. If it occurred a year or more ago, we understand that this could be a tricky process, but it is absolutely vital that you provide your solicitor with as much information as you can.
If you have any photographic evidence of the negligence that caused your accident, you may be asked to provide it as evidence for your outdoor jogging accident claim. Whilst this is not a necessity, it can make a huge difference to the success of a potential case. If possible, take clear colour photographs of damaged surfaces or dangerous public spaces.
