It is no secret that with the last year of lockdowns, closed gyms, and a lot more free time, up and down the country running has become a much-loved pastime and hobby for many of us. Running out in the open air can do wonders for both physical and mental health, and the potential risks and downsides should not outweigh these benefits of running. 
 
Still, while out running, there are a number of risks that you can potentially run into, and situations that have the potential to cause accidents and injuries. In this post, our NO WIN NO FEE personal injury solicitors at MG Legal run through some of the potential accidents that you could experience while out running, and how these accidents and injuries could lead to NO WIN NO FEE personal injury claims.

Still, while out running there are a number of risks that you can potentially run into, and situations that have a potential to cause accidents and injuries. In this post, our NO WIN NO FEE personal injury solicitors at MG Legal run through some of the potential accidents that you could experience while running, and how these accidents and injuries could lead to NO WIN NO FEE personal injury claims. 

1. Slip, trip or fall- claim against the council: 

When you are out running in public, especially if you are running in the dark or in a poorly lit area, it is not uncommon for runners to be involved in a slip, trip, or fall at some point during your time out running. While many trips and falls while you are out on a run might be an innocent tumble caused by simply losing your footing, if your fall was caused in any way by negligence on the part of the council or local authority responsible for the upkeep of the trail or path that you are running on, you could be eligible to claim for financial compensation with our NO WIN NO FEE personal injury solicitors. 
 
It is no secret that the conditions of the roads and pavements across the country are far from perfect, and that defects and potholes are rarely fixed and dealt with right away. Part of the duty of care that the council or local authorities have is to properly maintain the safety of the roads and public footpaths, and sort any problems or defects in due time. This is part of the duty that is paid for to the local authorities through our council tax. 
 
If you have been injured in a trip or fall while out running, and it was caused by a broken pavement slab, a pothole, or anything similar, then the accident was not your fault, and you could claim financial compensation through a personal injury claim. 
 
To speak to a no win no fee solicitor specialising in personal injury claims against the council or local authority, simply contact our team online, here, and speak to a solicitor on a free, no-obligation basis. Our team have successfully settled NO WIN NO FEE personal injury claims against local authorities for clients who have been injured while running, and achieved financial compensation on behalf of our clients. 

2. Hit by a car while running- pedestrian accident claim: 

In pedestrian accidents, and pedestrian accident claims, many of the injured victims are runners who enjoy running on footpaths and pavements alongside roads. According to the Highway Code, pedestrians are classed as the most vulnerable group of road users. Pedestrians do not have any protection from injury, such as the air bags and large vehicle body of cars and other vehicles. 
 
This position of pedestrians and vulnerable road users was solidified earlier this month in new Highway Code regulations, which set out the duty that other road users have to ensure the safety of pedestrians. These new regulations offer pedestrians more safety in the eyes of the law, and put more of a duty onto cars and other road users on protecting them. These rules bring a welcome change, and a necessary increased emphasis on keeping those most at risk of being seriously injured safe on the roads. To learn more about the new Highway Code Rules, and how they impact runners and other pedestrians, see this here. 
 
If you have been injured in a pedestrian accident as a runner, no matter how serious your injured, you could be eligible to make a pedestrian accident claim with our specialist no win no fee personal injury solicitors. To see more on our personal injury solicitors’ work on pedestrian accident claims, learn more about pedestrian accident claims, and how we can help, see our full page dedicated to this here.

3. Criminal assault- criminal injury claim: 

Last year, a worrying study was published by Runner’s World which highlighted a scary insight into the level risk involved in running alone, especially for women, and the level of harassment that runners can face while running in public places. The study showed that 46% of women, and 9% of men, had experienced harassment while out running. 
 
Most worryingly, 5% of women who were interviewed revealed that they had actually been physically assaulted while out running, whether this was being groped, grabbed, or assaulted in any other way. This statistic might shock many of us, and shows a culture of harassment that runners are experiencing up and down the country, which is a big problem. No runners should have to worry about the risk of being assaulted while out on a run, and our personal injury solicitors know that change needs to happen. 
 
Victims of physical assault, and sexual assault, should always use the Criminal Injuries Compensation Authority (CICA) to make a claim for financial compensation, as a small part of helping them in re-building their life after what they have suffered. 
 
When you work with our criminal injury claims solicitors, you can rest assured that we will guide you through the CICA claims process step by step, and handle everything for you, allowing you to focus on your daily life and responsibilities knowing that your claim is in expert hands. To learn more about the CICA claims process, how our team can help, and what you can expect, see our full page dedicated to this here. 
 
Financial compensation cannot fix what you have been through, or make the problem go away, but the compensation that you can claim through the CICA claims process is just a small part of what you deserve after being assaulted while out running. To speak to an experienced criminal injury claims solicitor, on a free no-obligation basis about your potential NO WIN NO FEE CICA claim, simply contact us online here and speak to a solicitor within one working hours.
