Statistically, the sport of drag racing appears to be more dangerous than getting on an aeroplane. The risks involved can, however, be mitigated by only participating in legitimate races where the environment is controlled and cars and drivers undergo strict safety checks; using appropriate safety equipment and approaching this adrenaline-pumping sport with reasonable intelligence.
Regardless of safety equipment and procedures, drag racing is a motor sport and subsequently carries an ever-present risk of serious, potentially even fatal personal injuries. Racers are subsequently required to adhere to specific safety protocols and use their common sense while driving.
As with accidents on the road, injuries by car crashes involving high speeds have a tendency to be far more serious than those sustained at lower speeds. Considering the speeds involved in straight-line drag racing, this means drivers essentially take their lives into their own hands every time they participate in a race.
If you were injured while drag racing because another driver acted inappropriately or because adequate necessary safety checks were not carried out, you may be entitled to personal injury compensation. Your eligibility to claim compensation may be established by filling in the 30-second test (or compensation calculator) provided on the website belonging to Accident Advice Helpline.

Accident Advice Helpline
Enjoying an impressive success record, Accident Advice Helpline has been assisting injured members of the public in claiming compensation for work injuries, injuries by traffic accidents, sporting injuries and more for many years. This experience becomes most evident in the effective, efficient way in which the company’s legal team conducts claim processes. Working on a no win no fee* basis, lawyers are often able to deal with most of a claim’s processes over the phone, and often, settlements are reached before cases ever make it to court.
Conditional fee agreement
No win no fee* (often also referred to as conditional fee) agreements basically mean claimants are not required to make any payment towards legal, solicitor’s or other fees until their compensation has been secured. Once the awarded amount has been paid, a percentage is deducted to cover all costs incurred during the claim process. The advantage of this is that claiming for compensation no longer means adding extra financial worries to what is undoubtedly already a stressful, financially worrying time.
