How have you been injured in Wolverhampton?
When you’re taking part in leisure activities, the last thing you expect is to be injured. But you don’t even need to be participating in thrill-seeking hobbies to be injured in your free time. Here are a few examples of claims in Wolverhampton we have dealt with since 2000:
- Trampolining injuries, usually caused by faulty equipment or lack of supervision
- Accidents at swimming pools, including accidental drownings and near-drownings, slips, trips and falls and diving accidents
- Leisure centre slips, trips, falls and other accidents
- Accidents sustained on running tracks, usually due to damaged surfaces
- Cycling injuries, either from cyclists being hit by cars or falling off their bike due to potholes/uneven road surface
However you’ve been injured in your free time, you could make a personal injury claim if you feel somebody else is to blame. It might be that the management of the establishment where you’ve been injured is to blame, but equally if you have been injured whilst cycling on Wolverhampton’s roads, the local authority could be held liable.
