Many people go bungee jumping for the first time while they are on holidays abroad. Before taking the plunge, it is important to be aware of the dangers of bungee jumping abroad. Here are some of these dangers.
The dangers of bungee jumping abroad
While bungee jumping is subject to strict health & safety rules and guidelines, this may not be the case abroad. This, of course, could significantly increase your risk of being injured.
Equipment may, for instance, not be maintained in good, safe working order. Operators may also not provide relevant protective equipment clothing. Either way, such issues could lead to potentially serious bungee jumping accidents.
Certain health conditions can be made worse by bungee jumping, which means people suffering from these conditions should not participate in this activity. When bungee jumping abroad, language issues could mean operators do not understand you properly and subsequently allow you to jump even with such conditions.
Language problems could also prevent you from understanding instructions and safety advice correctly. This could again lead to potentially life-changing and even fatal bungee jumping injuries.
If you were injured while bungee jumping abroad, you could be entitled to claim bungee injury compensation. Claiming bungee accident compensation could, however, be made more complicated by the fact that your bungee-related injury occurred abroad.
