Golf accidents and our personal injury claim calculator in North Somerset
Picture the scene; it’s a Sunday afternoon and you’ve decide to head out for a post-lunch stroll. You head out into the countryside, close to the local golf course. All is going well until you are suddenly whacked in the head by an errant golf ball. You are done quite a nasty injury and require immediate medical attention. Needless to say, this is a very unpleasant experience.
Under these circumstances, there will be a possibility that you will be able to make a claim for compensation. If the individual golfer who hit the ball that smacked you in the head was proved to be negligent, he or she might have to compensate you. If it was established that there was an issue with the layout of the course that might have made it more likely that errant balls might hit passers-by, you may be able to take action against the club itself. If you’re unsure of who might be liable in your case, you’ll need to take the advice of a decent 100% no win no fee* personal injury solicitor.
