Do you need to make Thanet event claims after being hurt at a charity event?
With millions of pounds being raised for charities throughout the United Kingdom, people in Great Britain always seem willing to support local, regional, national and international charities when they can. In addition to offering regular contributions to existing charities, many people often support charities which are formed to help people affected by natural disasters or sudden crisis.
In addition to donating to charities, many people also support them by attending events or getting sponsored for something. For example, some people run marathons, climb mountains or even take on extreme sports in order to raise money for their chosen charities. With some events catering for hundreds or thousands of fundraisers, it’s important that they are organised properly so that people can take part safely, without the risk of unnecessary injuries.
When any event is organised, it must adhere to strict health and safety guidelines. Even charity events must ensure that they meet the relevant legal requirements. If you’ve been hurt whilst at a charity event, and it wasn’t your fault, it’s possible that you could be eligible to make Thanet event claims and obtain compensation for your injuries.
However, when people have been hurt at a charity event, they are often reluctant to make Thanet event claims against the charity itself. In some cases, they think that the charity will have to pay their compensation directly and that this could take away from other people in need. However, it’s likely that the charity will have been required to have public liability insurance in place so if you do make Thanet event claims against them and obtain compensation, it’s likely that your compensation will actually come from their insurers, rather than the charity themselves.
