Accident Advice Helpline provides youth club accident advice and legal representation to clients that have been injured while attending or working at a youth club. If the injury was someone else’s fault, and it took place during the last three years, then you have the right to start a personal injury compensation claim. You can talk to our advisors right now by calling our 24-hour free helpline. Our advisors will highlight the options available to you and match you with an expert solicitor if you are eligible for compensation.
Can I file a claim?
Youth clubs offer young people the chance to socialise and participate in activities such as football, and work towards qualifications such as The Duke of Edinburgh Award. These activities can lead to personal injuries if health and safety measures in the building and surrounding area are not adhered to or maintained. For example, you may be able to make a claim if you or your child fell from a faulty structure and suffered a concussion or broke a limb. You could also file a claim if a negligent third party failed to realise that the supplied equipment was defective and it subsequently resulted in a serious accident.
You can also make a claim if you work at a youth club and have sustained serious injuries. For example, you may have injured your back after attempting to store heavy equipment or suffered a slip, trip, or fall due to a wet floor or dangerous surface. If the club is council owned, then the local authority may be liable, and we can make a claim against them on your behalf. If the property is privately owned, then we will file a claim against the building owners. A claim will ensure that those responsible are brought to justice in some way and will reduce the chances of the accident occurring again in the future.

Our advisors will match you with a solicitor immediately if your claim appears to be potentially successful. Accident Advice Helpline has fourteen years of experience handling claims for clients across the United Kingdom. All they require from you is details about the accident so that they can champion your cause and prove that a third party was negligent. This evidence will be based on information provided by you as well as anything noted down in the Youth club’s accident book.
We recommend that you notify a member of staff about the accident within two days. You should also gather the statements of any witnesses, and provide medical and financial documents that show how the injury has affected you, both physically and financially.
