Due to the nature of blindfold driving and the often hefty 4×4 vehicles operated while the driver’s vision is impaired, it is a sad reality that many people are injured during this activity each year. If you find yourself in this situation, you may need to seek blindfold driving injury advice.
Seeking blindfold driving injury advice
Blindfold driving is an exhilarating experience, usually enjoyed by groups of friends. The driver is blindfolded and relies on the teamwork and directions of his passengers to drive a vehicle successfully through a course; the faster he manages this, the better his score. Although no one signs up for blindfold driving without realising the potential risks it involves, sometimes accidents are beyond our control.
If the injuries you suffered were someone else’s fault (e.g. caused by unsafe vehicles, dangerous surroundings, lack of supervision or disregard for healthy and safety regulations), you may have a case that is eligible for a financial compensation payout.
You weren’t to blame for the accident, and you are well within your rights to enquire about blindfold driving injury advice. Don’t worry that by placing a claim you will personally damage the blindfold driving company or their employees; the company’s insurance policies will cover your claim and is ultimately what they are there for.
Staying safe when blindfold driving
Some pointers to adhere to when taking part in blindfold driving are:
- Ensure that you are fully briefed and clear on blindfold driving safety by a fully qualified instructor before going anywhere near a vehicle
- Always wear your seat-belt
- Stop if you feel unsure or that you are putting the lives of yourself or others in jeopardy.
- Listen to the members of your group
- Ensure that whoever is driving the car has a valid driving licence and is above the age of 17
- While you and your friends are in the car, have an instructor present to supervise the experience and keep you safe
