    Most common rowing accident injuries


    While rowing is not generally considered as a dangerous pursuit, there are various types of rowing that operate on a range of waters, such as ocean, touring, rowability and skiff racing.

    Rowing can be a particularly fast paced, vigorous activity, which challenges the body, and the safety of the rower depends not only on their skill and experience, but on the temperament of the water, which can be somewhat unpredictable and, as such, life threatening.

    With this in mind, forget the typical slips, trips and falls that are so common to other sports, rowing accidents can be severe and cause critical, if not fatal sport-related injuries.

    Common rowing accident injuries include, but are not limited to:

    • Lacerations
    • Strains and sprains
    • Bumps and bruises
    • Water-borne infections
    • Inflammation of tendons
    • Fractures and dislocations
    • Head injuries and concussion
    • Severe muscular pain
    • Slips, trips and falls

    Who is to blame for your rowing accident?

    When you take part in water adventure sports such as rowing, you can expect to sustain some small injuries. That being said, if you have a rowing accident and you believe someone is at fault for the sport injuries you have sustained, you may want to take matters further.

    There is often someone responsible. Whether there has been a problem with your location or choice, poor training from an adventures pursuits group or insufficient safety equipment has been provided, if you have been harmed then you deserve to receive compensation for your distress.
