Blindfold driving can be a fun, exciting experience, often enjoyed by those on their hen or stag weekend or out with a group of friends. However, as the name suggests, this exhilarating activity comes at a risk. If you are injured, you may need to make a blindfold driving accident claim.
If you need legal advice or are unsure about whether your case will make for a successful blindfold driving accident claim, then look no further than Accident Advice Helpline’s team of personal injury claims specialists.
Our free, 24-hour helpline offers access to free, expert legal advice regarding the accident you’ve suffered and the most up-to-date information on compensation law.
Making a blindfold driving accident claim
Although blindfold driving is a fun team/group activity, the very nature of both this activity and the 4×4 vehicles that are typically used means that participants are at a higher risk of injury. Although nobody agrees to go on a blindfold driving experience without being somewhat aware of the risks involved, sometimes accidents are inevitable, no matter how prepared you are.
If the accident that caused your injury was the fault of someone else, whether through faulty equipment, hazardous surroundings, vehicles that aren’t fit for purpose, substandard supervision, or disregard for health and safety regulations at the wheel, then you may be entitled to compensation.
Venues and companies that offer such an experience are obliged to have public liability insurance to cover them in the unfortunate circumstance that someone is injured, so don’t think you are personally damaging them. Successfully winning a financial payout ensures that whatever caused your accident can be avoided in the future by putting in place appropriate preventative measures.
It can also help those who have suffered an accident to gain a sense of justice. This sense of closure, as well as the financial security a payout provides, can help victims of accidents with their recovery.
Is my blindfold driving accident claim eligible?
To be eligible, your claim needs to meet the following stipulations:
- You must contact Accident Advice Helpline within three years of the accident,
