If you have the question, ‘Can I claim for an accident while hula hooping?’ then it may be possible you believe that the accident was the fault of a third party. You may have been getting instruction on how to use a hula-hoop from a professional teacher, taking a class where there were other students or you may even have been the teacher yourself. If those organising the sessions did not properly take care of the health and safety aspects of the activity, then you could find that they are liable in a personal injury claim.
Are there risks using a hula hoop?
You might think that this is just a children’s toy but there are still dangers if it is not used properly. You could trip over it, hurt yourself while using it or you could be using it in an environment that is dangerous. You could suffer a sprain, broken bone or even worse. Do not make the mistake of thinking that your injury is only minor so it does not matter as even a small injury could have a dramatic impact on your life and force you to make changes.
Suppose you suffer a sprained ankle. If your day job involves you standing or moving around for much of the day then you are going to find this very difficult, and you could find that you need to take time away from work while you recover. How long you need will depend upon the injury that you have sustained.
