    Accident solicitor in Turnberry

    The golf resort of Turnberry stands on the coast of the outer Firth of Clyde in the south west of Scotland. Its three courses challenge even the most experienced of golfers, many of whom return to experience the thrills of the resort time and time again.

    While golfing in Scotland is an enjoyable pastime, players must not forget that golf is a dangerous sport. Common golf course injuries and accidents include:

    Slip, trip and fall accidents on the golf course and an accident solicitor in Turnberry

    Golf course owners owe golfers and spectators a duty of care. This means that they must take reasonable action to keep the golf course safe and hence, prevent people from suffering from injuries. However, golfers and spectators can become injured in slip, trip and fall accidents caused by the negligence of golf course owners.

    Golf club injuries

    Golfers can become accidentally injured when fellow players swing their golf clubs without ascertaining that it is safe for them to do so. Golf balls also pose a risk to golfers and can result in serious head and eye injuries.

    There are two parties who may be found at fault in such accidents: the golfer (if he was negligent in ascertaining that it was safe to swing his golf club) and the victim (if he ignored warning signs and/or stepped in the path of a golfer without warning).

    Golf buggy accidents

    As golf courses span a lengthy distance, most golfers opt to use golf buggies to travel from one location to another. Golf buggy accidents can happen for a range of reasons. However, two of the most common causes include negligence on the part of the driver and golf buggy defects. If a golf buggy has been defectively manufactured, an accident solicitor in Turnberry may be able to hold the manufacturer and/or supplier liable for any injuries sustained.

    Claiming golf accident compensation through an accident solicitor in Turnberry

    Like most sports, golf has its own set of risks and hazards, but like all accidents, if a golfer sustains an injury that was caused through the fault or negligence of someone else, a claim for compensation is likely to be on the horizon. In case of golf accident injuries, an injured golfer must seek the advice of a no-win, no-fee golf accident solicitor in Turnberry or our own experts by calling Accident Advice Helpline’s Freephone helpline or using the 30-second test.
