Have you been hurt at a sporting event?
Although some major sporting events take place once every few years, there are some games and matches that take place on a weekly basis. Football matches, for example, can take place once or twice a week throughout the football season.
This means that, every week, hundreds of thousands of fans can be congregating in just the one area in order to view the match. With some football stadiums holding up to eighty or ninety thousand spectators, this requires serious health and safety considerations in order to ensure that people aren’t injured.
Even if the fans aren’t aggressive or problematic in any way, simply moving ninety thousand people around the venue without injuries occurring can be troublesome. Fortunately, most stadiums have numerous entry points as well as medical and security staff on hand to help in the event of an emergency.
However, if you are hurt whilst visiting a stadium, you could potentially make a compensation claim with a personal injury lawyer in Brendon if the injury wasn’t your fault.
If you happen to live close to a popular or well-known stadium, you may be affected by the influx of people on match days, even if you don’t go to the game. Local areas, such as shops, restaurants and pubs can be busier on match days as people from out of the area congregate before or after the match.
Similarly, the roads in the area can become busier than normal as people try and get to and from the venue. Due to this, there can be a rise in the number of injuries and accidents which occur. If you’re hurt on the roads or in your local area, a personal injury lawyer in Brendon may be able to help you to make a claim for compensation, providing you can show that your injuries weren’t your fault.
Should I make a claim with a personal injury lawyer in Brendon immediately?
Although some people prefer to contact a personal injury lawyer in Brendon as soon as they can, you don’t have to make your claim straightaway if you don’t want to. Providing you contact a personal injury lawyer in Brendon or a personal injury law firm within three years of the injury occurring, it’s likely that they will be able to help you to make a claim and you could still receive a significant amount of compensation.
