We all know that football is referred to as “the glorious game” but sometimes, it’s a little less than glorious. This isn’t just if your team is losing. You might have been involved in accident either whilst watching or taking part in a football match and this accident might have left you with injuries.
If you have been injured in an accident at a football match then you might be able to make a compensation claim in West Ham.
Accidents at Football Matches
A little bit of rough and tumble is expected when you play football, but sometimes tackles can be malicious and result in a little bit more than a bump, bruise or cut. Occasionally the injuries sustained have far reaching complications and can have significant impacts on the rest of your life. If this is the case for you then you might want to talk to someone about making a compensation claim West Ham.
For example, if you suffer a broken leg whilst playing football in your local five-a-side team on a Monday night you might have to take a significant amount of time off from work while you recover. You might not be entitled to statutory sickness pay and consequently you will be out of pocket due to loss of earnings. Not to mention the pain and discomfort you will be in as you recover from the broken bone.
In such an instant you might well seek financial compensation and want to make a compensation claim West Ham.
Players might even be injured by other hazards that have been left on the pitch, for example, broken glass or chemicals used in the treatment of the grass.
But it’s not just on the pitch that injuries can occur though. Whether you are watching the top flight football teams, or your local 3rd division side, you have every right as a spectator to enjoy the game in safety.
The stands may not be properly maintained and you may experience a fall. The seat you are sitting in could have sharp edges that have not be properly covered up and you sustain a cut or laceration as a result. You might even end up with food poisoning from the on-site burger bar.
All of this are good ways to ruin a perfectly enjoyable day out and could mean that you are entitled to make a compensation claim in West Ham for financial compensation.
