Have you been injured at a classic car show?
We all like the idea of getting away for a break, and some of us like to couple this with our love of old cars.
Classic cars are a great attraction especially during the bank holidays in the summer months and many thousands of people from up and down the United Kingdom travel to various meeting grounds to gaze lovingly at these vehicular pieces of history.
However though, as we here at Accident Advice Helpline along with our no win no fee Matlock Bath solicitors who know only too well, accidents can happen even at events that are well organised.
All it can take is a moment’s lapse of concentration on the behalf of a steward or marshall and a member of the public can be ushered into the wrong area.
As the organisers of such events they have a duty of care to ensure that you, the event goer, comes to no harm.
However, as we have already said, accidents can and do happen regardless of how much care and attention you the event-goer may take. If you are injured through no fault of your own then you may be eligible to compensation and Accident Advice Helpline and our no win no fee Matlock Bath solicitors can help.
If they failed in their duty of care
None of us like to think that we fail when it comes to doing anything but it can be even more of a bombshell if you have failed in protecting someone from an accident.
At outdoor rallies and events you, as the organiser, are responsible for the safety arrangements and training of any stewards or marshals under your employ.
To this end if they have not been trained correctly and it is necessary to call upon their assistance in the event of an accident you have failed in your requirements under the Health & Safety Act.
This may well make you liable for any consequences. Accident Advice Helpline and our no win no fee Matlock Bath solicitors have a wealth of experience and knowledge in dealing with instances of accidents occurring due to the negligence of a third party.
