    Can I claim for white water rafting injuries?

    Can I claim for white water rafting injuries?

    Once limited to the USA, white water rafting has become increasingly popular across the globe over the last twenty years. Now countless adrenaline junkies take to the rushed rivers to partake in this sport in the UK and abroad, leading to myriad white water rafting injuries each year.

    As with all daring activities, it is important to consider the risks involved with white water rafting. Slips, trips and falls near and in water, combined with the rapidity and volatility of swift rivers, can lead to numerous adventure-pursuit accidents and white water rafting injuries of varying severity.

    As such, it is vital that white water rafting is only undertaken by strong swimmers, who are able to fight against the power of the water.

    As with all public businesses, the tour organiser has a legal obligation to ensure your health and safety while you undertake the activity to reduce the chances of white water rafting accidents or injuries following the excursion.

    When you sustain an injury due to factors such as inadequate safety advice, an insufficient induction, poor first aid or unsuitable terrain, the white water rafting company could be held liable for failing to meet legal health and safety standards.
