In addition to, it is also possible to for injuries sustained when watching sport. Spectators should be able to attend sporting events safely, meaning that the premises used should meet the required health and safety standards.
This means that any seating or sheltered areas should be properly maintained, as should any fencing or barriers. Any indoor or undercover areas should have proper lighting, and a risk assessment of the premises should have been undertaken. If any of these things are not done and an injury occurs as a result, then it may be possible to claim compensation.
Another way in which a compensation claim can arise is where there is a lack of crowd control. One of the most infamous instances of this is the Hillsborough Disaster, where 96 people were killed and hundreds more suffered . Poor police control caused the disaster, and a large number of personal injury claims were brought against the police.
As with sports injuries, if you are injured as a spectator it is important to get immediate medical treatment, as this will provide evidence for any future claims.
