People who participate in competitive sports, either amateur or professional, can often get very passionate when taking part in their sport of choice, both when things are going well for them, or not so well. This passion can manifest itself in a variety of ways. Some people like to let off a few grunts or shouts, while others might start to throw any equipment that their sport involves about the place. If you were watching any type of sport when a participant threw something that hit you on the head, you might be able to make a claim for compensation for head injuries in Redbridge, regardless of whether or not the individual involved intended for you to be struck on the noggin.
Claiming compensation for head injuries in Redbridge
Imagine that you had decided to pop along to your local tennis club to watch a few matches taking place during a tournament. It’s not a particularly high-profile event, but you enjoy watching people playing tennis, so go along. During one match that you are particularly enjoying, one of the players seems to be getting rather frustrated that things aren’t going his way. He huffs and puffs about the court becoming increasingly put out with each point he loses.
At one point, things appear to have all become too much for the angry tennis player. Unable to contain his rage, he throws his racket hard onto the ground. As tennis rackets are made of pretty durable materials, it bounces up off the floor and shoots into the stands, hitting you square in the face.
As a result of being struck, you have to seek immediate medical attention, during which you learn that your nose has been broken. If this was to happen to you, there will be a chance that you might well be able to seek recompense for the suffering you were forced to endure.
