Can Accident Advice Helpline help me?
You might be eligible to file a claim for compensation if your aerial yoga injury or accident occurred within the last three years, and was a direct result of the negligence of a third party. This latter part can take various forms – you might be eligible if yoga equipment was damaged or poorly maintained, if the right health and safety guidelines weren’t put in place, or if the practice environment was unsuitable.
We promise to handle your case with both care and sensitivity, no matter the injury involved. We are here to help both you and the negligent third party understand that compensation is not just a financial issue. It is often the only way for a victim to find emotional closure after a particularly traumatic accident or injury.
What is an aerial yoga accident?
The main difference between aerial yoga and regular yoga is that the former takes place suspended a specific distance off the ground, in flexible hammocks. Whilst yoga is generally a very gentle and relaxing activity, the addition of height clearly brings new risks. There is the added potential for falls, trips and even sprains and breaks – this type of accident is common amongst suspended supports or hangings, as arms and legs can easily get tangled up in straps or harnesses.
In order to be eligible for compensation, however, the accident (and subsequent injury) must be the fault of a third party; such as the people, or authority, responsible for the safety and maintenance of both the relevant equipment and the environment in which the activity took place. You cannot claim for injuries resulting from personal negligence, such as a failure to adhere to clear safety warnings or signals.
What is the next step?
In almost all cases the responsibility for your safety falls to the individual or company who owns the building in which the yoga takes place. It is the duty of this third party to make sure that equipment is cared for, floors and ceilings are suitable for the practice of aerial yoga, and that only qualified teachers are allowed to lead classes.
If these conditions are not met, it is possible that a vital duty of care has been neglected and you may be eligible to make a claim for financial remuneration. If you think that you might be eligible, or you would like additional aerial yoga injury advice from a qualified expert, call our free 24-hour helpline on 0800 689 0500.
