    The worst recorded accidents at a skate park


    A skate park is a great place to let off some steam, burn excess energy and show off your tricks. If you’’re a skating fan, you’’re probably aware that visiting the skate park comes with risks. Accidents, including slips, trips and falls, are fairly common and injuries can be severe. If you’’ve been injured at the skate park and you weren’’t at fault, why not give Accident Advice Helpline a call and see how we could help you to claim compensation?

    The worst recorded accidents at a skate park

    Skateboarding may seem like a fun, harmless activity, but it can actually be very dangerous. The worst recorded accidents at a skate park include fatalities. If you fall at a skate park, you can cause serious damage to your head and spinal cord, which may result in traumatic brain injuries, loss of movement and paralysis. More commonly, injuries tend to include cuts and grazes, broken bones, dislocations and bruising.

    There’’s an element of risk attached to all adventure and extreme sports and when you visit the skate park, you’’re probably aware that an accident could result in serious injuries. You attempt tricks at your own risk, but nevertheless, it’’s wise to be aware of potential hazards. Here are some safety tips to try and reduce the risk of slip and trip injuries:

    • Take extra care in wet weather
    • Know your limits
    • Wait for other skaters to get out of the way before you attempt tricks
    • Practise in a safe setting
    • Wear suitable footwear

    Is it possible to claim for an accident at a skate park?

    If you’’ve been injured in a public place, you may be wondering about making a compensation claim. Compensation is awarded to people who have been injured through no fault of their own; it is not presented to everyone who has had an accident in a public place.

    If you’’ve sustained injuries as a result of negligence on behalf of the council that manages the skate park, you may have a case for public liability compensation. An example of a claim which may be approved may include falling on a broken ramp which had already been reported to the authority.
