Do you need the support of an accident solicitor in Lingfield?
Lingfield is the home of one of the few all weather horse racing tracks in the United Kingdom. The sand surface and floodlights mean that the local public can enjoy flat racing all year round. The surface also means that there is less risk to the horses and jockeys from hard ground although accidents do still happen. Attending a race meeting is always good fun for all ages and is a good way of getting the whole family out for an afternoon. Accidents do sometimes happen at racetracks and do, very rarely, include the public, such as the instance at Cheltenham recently when a horse decided he would rather be in the crowd than on the track. Fortunately no one was hurt, except for the unfortunate jockey who landed on the concrete underneath the horse. If you were injured while attending a race meeting then you may be entitled to make a claim for compensation for your injuries through an accident solicitor in Lingfield.
Accident solicitor in Lingfield – what will your solicitor need to know?
The first thing that your solicitor in Lingfield will need to know is that you have not been in breach of any of the safety notices on the track. There is always a level of security at a racetrack and if you have ignored signs, or stewards, and gone into an area where you should not have been then you will not be entitled to claim any compensation for your injuries. Wandering out of controlled areas at racetracks, such as onto the track itself, puts you at your own risk and the management would not be able to be held accountable. If however you were in the correct area and suffered an accident and the course was found to be negligent then you would have every right to make a claim.
