Are you making a Harrow no win no fee* compensation claim after being hurt at a children’s sporting event?
Although many children enjoy taking part in sports and sporting events, it’s now actively encouraged in schools and children’s clubs. In a bid to increase fitness, many more sports clubs are making events available to children and schools are now offering more sports in the curriculum.
Often, parents and family friends are encouraged to watch sporting events or even to take part in clubs and classes themselves. As most clubs require a certain number of adults to be present in order to supervise the children, it can be very helpful if parents are willing to take part in running local sports clubs and activities groups.
As with any activity involving children, safety is paramount. In some cases, popular sports are modified to ensure that children can take part as safely as possible. For example, when young people are playing rugby, they often play a modified version of the sport called ‘tag’ or ‘touch rugby’. This enables them to learn some of the skills associated with the sport and compete against other teams but they aren’t required to tackle each other as adult players do. As many rugby players do suffer injuries whilst playing, this modified version enables children to take part in the sport in a safer way.
Of course, in some cases accidents are unavoidable and people can get hurt whilst both watching and playing sports. If you have been hurt or injured whilst attending a children’s sporting event, you may find that you’re eligible to make a Harrow no win no fee* compensation claim against those responsible.
In some cases, people may be reluctant to make a Harrow no win no fee* compensation claim in these circumstances, particularly if the incident happened at a local children’s group or charitable organisation. However, making a Harrow no win no fee* compensation claim can help to alert people to potential dangers and it could prevent other people from being hurt in the same way.
If it is a child that has been hurt, it could be even more important to make a Harrow no win no fee* compensation. In such a situation a parent or guardian would need to make the Harrow no win no fee* compensation claim on their behalf.
