    Vine accidents: Leave parkour to the experts!

    Originating from France, parkour has been an important training activity since the last 20th century and focuses on getting from one destination to another in the fastest, most efficient way by negotiating obstacles. Many people partake in parkour to show off their physical fitness or skills, often filming their adventures in order to post the video on YouTube and receive praise.

    An exercise to boost your adrenaline levels

    Known in French as ‘Le parcours’, which translates into ‘the course’, parkour was founded by David Belle, whose father invented the phrase to describe physical training consisting of activities including balancing, climbing, running and jumping.

    This intense exercise is an efficient full body workout when performed properly, and is certainly a more cost-effective way to work out as opposed to paying for an annual gym membership. However, sometimes it is best to leave these kind of activities to the professionals, as there is a high risk of slips, trips or falls, just as motorists can be at risk of being injured in a road accident.

    Remember, some accidents may not be your fault

    Whether it’s attempting to climb over a metal railing, a high wall, or jumping across a wide gap several metres about the ground, parkour can be particularly dangerous and exposes people to potentially dangerous falls or trips, unless it is performed by professional stunt performers.

    Like various work accidents, some injuries sustained by parkour practitioners may be due to circumstances out of their control, such as dangerous surfaces or hazards that the participant may not be responsible for. Our friendly, caring team of lawyers have years of experience in processing injury compensation claims and are always on hand to offer you professional advice.
