Broadstone in Dorset grew rapidly from being a single farm, Broadstone farm, to the town it is today.
There is a golf course there, which has the distinction of being an unspoilt heathland course. It is in the top 100 gold courses in the UK and in the top 1,000 of a premier list of golf courses in the world. It was founded and first laid out in 1898 by Tom Dunn, but was subsequently re-designed by H.S. Colt in 1914. The modern course owners are keen to attract young golfers and were offering a Junior golf camp holiday over the Easter period of 2014.
Golfing accidents and the best solicitors in Broadstone
If you are a keen golfer, you will probably have realized that a round of golf can be costly, in which case, you may have taken out insurance cover to pay for any accident you cause on the golf course. If you are a spectator or a golfer, you could get hit on the head by an errant golf ball and then you would need the services of solicitors in Broadstone or ones based elsewhere in the UK to represent you in a personal injury compensation claim case.
Although golf balls are small, they can cause some serious injuries. If you are it on the head by one, you would probably require hospital treatment, as do many others. A golf ball in the eye can mean you lose it and that cost one golfer around £400,000 in 2011.
You may also be hit by a golf club, if you stand in the way of a fellow-golfer who is about to take a swing at a ball. Of course, golfers have a responsibility for those around them and these days, only the most foolhardy golfer would not check all around to ensure no one was in range of the swing or the ball. However, accidents do happen, and if you are involved in a freak accident on a golf course, you should endeavour to find personal injuries solicitors in Broadstone or elsewhere, who have experience in dealing with golfing accident claims.
You may be able to claim damages for a golfing accident from the owners of course, if the course does not meet the required safety standards.
