If you live in Bickington you could be looking for an accident solicitor in Bickington because you have suffered an injury while doing a sport, or while watching a game at a stadium or other sports ground.
People who play a contact sport such as rugby or football might expect to be injured because of the nature of the game. True, if you sustain an injury doing one of these sports you may not have grounds for making a compensation claim. However if you were subjected to an illegal tackle for example, then you could make a claim.
If you were watching a game and were injured because, perhaps the seating was unsafe, then you would be able to make a personal injury compensation claim.
If you were working out at a gym and were injured because of faulty equipment, then you would probably have grounds to make a compensation claim, as the gym’s owners have the responsibility to maintain their equipment and ensure it is tested regularly so that accidents do not occur. Your personal trainer could also be deemed to have been at fault if he/she pushed you beyond your capacity and you sustained an injury.
If the surface of an athletics track, for example was not properly maintained and you fell because of this, then you could have grounds for making a compensation claim against the owners of the track – perhaps a university, or a local council and so on.
Accident solicitor in Bickington
An accident solicitor in Bickington, or one elsewhere in the UK, would have to prove that your injury was caused by another person’s negligence. It doesn’t matter what kind of accident you were injured in, sports or otherwise. You could have a case to make a personal injury compensation claim after any accident that was not your fault. You should make your claim within three years of the accident, and in some instances, such as a medical negligence claim, you should make a claim as soon as possible as it takes a long time for a solicitor to build a case for you.
