You might not realise that you can claim personal injury compensation for some sports accidents, even those that happen while playing a contact sport such as rugby. If you are injured in an illegal tackle, then you may be eligible to make a claim. You would need the help of solicitors in Cold Ashby to help you prove that the accident and your injury were caused by another person’s recklessness, and were no fault of yours.
You might think that bowls is a gentle form of exercise in which not much can go wrong, but you might trip, slip or fall while walking over the ditch, or perhaps you could trip over the mat if it had not been properly placed. You could sprain your wrist while carrying your bowling equipment, or you might step backwards and fall over a ball, in which case the accident would be entirely your fault and you would not be entitled to make a claim. However, if another player bowled a ball at you and you were injured, then you could possibly make an injury claim against that player. To make a successful claim, you have to prove that you were not to blame for the accident.
Solicitors in Cold Ashby
Solicitors in Cold Ashby, if there were any, could also help you to make a personal injury compensation claim if you were diagnosed with an illness that you, with their help, could prove had resulted from someone else’s negligence. You would have three years from the date of your first diagnosis in which to file an injury claim against the person whose negligence you believe to be responsible for your illness.
You also normally have three years in which to make a claim for injuries sustained in an accident, although this is not a hard-and-fast rule so you should check with a firm of solicitors, or Accident Advice Helpline, to find out how long you have to file your claim.
