Common caber tossing accidents
Although the slow pace of caber tossing and the fact it only involves one moving part makes it safer than many sports, accidents can still happen, including the following:
- The caber tipping backwards and striking the thrower.
- The caber tipping sideways and striking a spectator or official.
- The thrower skidding and falling, damaging muscles or ligaments in the process.
- The thrower damaging leg muscles when standing up with the caber.
Caber tossing obviously carries some risk and those attempting it are understood to be accepting this. It is not possible to claim if you have simply been careless or unlucky. In some cases though, responsibility obviously lies elsewhere.
If you have been injured because you were wrongly taught how to lift or throw the caber, you may have a case for compensation. If you are standing in what you have been told is a safe area but you are still hit by a caber, you too should seek caber tossing injury advice.
The rules of claiming
Even if your injury is clearly someone else’s fault, you will only be able to claim if you received proper medical treatment, and not just first aid, for your injuries. If you have strained muscles or hit your head you should always see a doctor anyway because there may be hidden damage that requires urgent treatment to stop it from getting worse.
Any claim will need to be made within three years of the accident occurring, unless it is a child who is injured, in which case the claims period is longer. If you have any uncertainty about this, just call us and we will be happy to clarify.
