The answer to the question, ‘Can I claim for an accident at an adventure park?’ we will need to understand the circumstances surrounding the incident. You should not have been to blame through your reckless actions or negligence. If you were the innocent party, you may be able to make a claim.
Why you should make a claim
At adventure parks, there are many ways for someone to suffer an accident, and with fast moving rides, it is understandable that some of these may be severe. Injuries resulting from your accident could have led to you having to take time off work, which leads to income lost, prescriptions and medications having to be paid for and you may have had to face the cost of travel to and from medical appointments. In the case of a very serious injury, you may need to receive care for an extended period of time. By making a claim, financial losses and enforced expenditure can be reimbursed, as well as additional compensation for your pain and suffering.
What evidence is needed?
In order for you to make a claim, you should see your doctor as his medical report, outlining the extent of your injury, will be necessary. Under the claims regulations there are tight deadlines and usually you should commence a claim within three years of the accident.
For you to be able to make a claim, we need to show that you were not responsible for the accident which led to your injury and who was liable. To do this, we need your account of what actually happened and also the accounts of anyone who saw the accident. This is why, wherever possible, the victim of an accident should take the names and contact details of any witnesses.
As well as providing us with an account of what happened, you will also need to provide us with the details of any financial losses suffered by you because of the accident. This means you should keep details of loss of income and additional expenditure related to your injuries.
