With thousands of people watching sports events every week, it is hardly surprising that attendants are sometimes injured.
This can happen for a range of reasons including:
Those responsible for the running of sporting events should ensure that high standards are kept and health and safety guidelines are met.
Walkways should be unobstructed and free to flow. Barriers and bannisters should be safe, solid and tightly fixed in place so as not to cause an accident. Crowd areas and shelters should be well maintained, free from rubbish and trip hazards.
Other claims made by spectators include:
If you have attended a sports event and suffered an injury through no fault of your own, you may be able to claim compensation.
Just as other venues like theatres or shopping centres need to adhere to health and safety regulations so too do arenas and other sports facilities. It may have been at a cricket, football or rugby league match, at your local leisure centre or a larger event like a World Cup or Olympic venue that your accident occurred. No matter where you were injured, it is the responsibility of the facility to exercise due professional care to its visitors.
