GOLF CIVIL LIABILITY INSURANCE IN PORTUGAL.
What is golf liability insurance and why you need it.
Golf liability insurance provides personal liability insurance in the event that you are held liable for injuring someone or causing serious property damage at a golfing facility. Most golf courses in Portugal will have their own business insurance with liability cover, with limited scope. The Club's public liability is to protect the golf clubs interests, not yours. if you cause injury or damage due to your negligence, you are liable.
There are thousands of injuries caused every year at golf courses all over Europe. Slipping and falling injuries that cause severe knee and ankle injuries, being hit or hitting someone with a golf ball after a wayward shot, or even releasing the golf club have caused severe injuries to others. In the past many golfers would accept that the risk of injury existed, shrug off the injury like most sportsmen, and that would be that. Not so with some sportsmen today. Injuries on a Portuguese Golf course can be serious and dangerous and have long term effects on the injured party. Players injured by stray wayward golfing shots may well look to some form of compensation and seek lawyers to take their cases. With more and more no win no fee lawyers, litigation is quite simple for the injured party and you could be in for some very expensive and litigious costs.
