    Hambleton personal injury claims

    It’s a little known fact that the village of Hambleton is the birth place of English cricket, so in honour of this fact we’ll look at the combination of the two – you can claim Hambleton personal injury claims for an injury sustained while playing or watching cricket.

    Hambleton personal injury claims

    Cricket, like any sport, has its dangers and sometimes people sustain an injury. If that was not their fault and someone else was to blame then compensation of sorts could well be appropriate.

    A case was recently reported in The Telegraph in which a woman was hit on the head by a hard cricket ball during an indoor cricket tournament. She had been talking to one of the umpires at the time when the ball struck her on the head causing concussion, breaking her jaw and forcing her to have reconstructive dental surgery. Because she could not see the person who was responsible for hitting the ball she wrote to the four clubs who were at the tournament saying that she intended to seek compensation. According to the report she could receive anything up to £25,000 which for the clubs concerned is a major problem.

    Making a claim

    Sports injuries such as these can be complicated because of the question of blame. Under the law you can’t claim for an accident if it was your fault. When at a sports event there are certain safety considerations you should always take. For example, at a cricket event talking to someone while turning your back is one of the first things you’re taught not to do. If she was doing this while a game was in progress then she could be judged to have been partially responsible for the injury itself.

    However, in this case there are factors which work in her favour. First of all she was hit by an outside cricket ball in an indoor game. The players should not have been using this so whoever hit the ball would have broken safety regulations. Equally, she was talking during a break in play so there was no game for her to turn her back on.

    Paying for a claim

    Whether or not she wins her case depends on a number of things. She would first of all have to show that the injury was bad enough to have a significant impact on her life which, given the fact that she broke her jaw, would seem to be fairly straightforward and she would also have to show that the accident was definitely the fault of the defendant. Therefore if she’s suing the four different clubs she needs to show that they were responsible for the accident.

    Not all claims are like this indeed, most are as unique as the individuals involved. So if you’re looking for Hambleton personal injury claims give us a call on 0800 689 0500, or 0333 500 0993 from a mobile.
