Speedway has excitement, it has thrills and it has dangers, which makes it highly likely that participants in such events will at some point in their racing career have to make a Speedway accident claim.
Every Speedway racing event should adhere to strict safety guidelines and regulations that aim to prevent accidents from happening in the first place. Of course, this is not always possible, but the organisers should be ready to spring into action as soon as an accident or injury occurs. Speedway track organisers who fail to care for and protect participants and spectators lay themselves open to compensation claims and legal suits.
If you have suffered an accident resulting in an injury at a Speedway racing event, then you may be eligible to make a claim. Speedway accidents that are often claimed for include injuries caused by defective motorbikes, such as those that have faults with their gears, the steering and the suspension. Burns can often result by the skin coming into contact with the metal heated by the motorbike’s engine. Injuries can be caused by flying debris, such as screws or bolts that are not secured to the vehicle, or even clothing and equipment worn by the rider, such as the helmet or goggles. As the track’s surface can be so very treacherous, spectators are at danger from bikes slipping and sliding, and careering into them as they watch, resulting in damage to lower limbs.
Can you make a claim?
If your injury does not seem to fit any of these, but you think you may still have a sufficient reason to make a claim, then you would benefit from the advice of expert lawyers. Telephone an organisation such as the Accident Advice Helpline to speak with people who will understand your injury story. This organisation has been operating since 2000 and since then have helped many thousands of people obtain justice and compensation for injuries sustained in accidents which were not their fault. They have a convenient 24-hour helpline that is free to call. Their representatives are specialists in the field of personal injury claims and will be able to provide a quick assessment of your injury and advise you as to whether it would be worth pursuing an injury claim.
They operate on a no win, no fee basis and will always try to obtain as great a sum of compensation for you as possible. When you call, you will not be asked any awkward questions about the state of your finances, as it costs nothing to begin a personal injury claim.
Compensation can help you make a quick and less stressful recovery. It can help pay the cost of your treatment, help with travelling costs to and from treatment centres, go towards the cost of home help or nursing care, and even pay babysitters if you need someone to look after your children while you seek treatment. Perhaps most importantly however, it can cover you for loss of earnings should your injury mean you are unable to work.
