Hiring pedalos has become an incredibly popular option in the UK during the summer months. However, far too many people have sustained injuries after using pedalos that they have hired out. One of the first things you should do when you’re considering hiring pedalos is finding out more about the company or organisation who own the pedalo. Today, it only takes seconds to look up reviews and discover what previous customers have said. You should also examine the pedalo for faults before you start using it.
The dangers of hiring pedalos?
Companies who are hiring pedalos out to the public need to ensure that they are safe to use. If you have had an accident whilst using a pedalo and it wasn’t your fault, you may be able to make a claim. Your chances of winning will be boosted if it is found that the pedalo owner broke health and safety regulations.
It’s important to establish who caused your accident as soon as you can. Try to gather together as much evidence about the accident as you can. Don’t throw away any evidence related to the event as we may need it to help you win your case. This means you need to keep hold of any witness contact details, photographs, medical reports and other documents associated with the accident. Witness statements can play a big role in making your case a success.
