If you enjoy extreme sports as hobbies, then you may have asked yourself the question: ‘Can I claim for a rock climbing accident?’ The good news is that if you have suffered an injury as the result of the actions of another person, then you may be eligible to make a claim. Rock climbing is a dangerous sport, and there are all kinds of precautions that should be taken in order to prevent participants from being hurt – but sometimes these are not enough. People suffer falls and other injuries while taking part, and this can have devastating consequences. Therefore, what do you do next?
Making a claim
Pursuing a personal injury claim is far easier than you might think. With a law firm like Accident Advice Helpline on your side, you will always feel that you are in safe hands. We employ a team of personal injury solicitors that have many years of experience in this field. Your initial call to our free 24-hour helpline is your chance to talk to one of our experienced advisors. They will be able to answer any questions that you may have, and will also be able to explain to you exactly how the claims process works, and what you should expect when we get started. You will be able to give us all the details of your rock climbing accident, so that we can begin the process. You may be advised to obtain medical evidence to support your claim, but once we have this, you won’t have to do much else.
What will the outcome be?
The most obvious outcome is that you could be awarded compensation for your injuries. This is designed to help you out with any money lost as a result of time off work, any out of pocket expenses such as physiotherapy, counselling or travel that are connected to your injury, and compensation for inconvenience. In extreme cases, there may be compensation awarded to those who are not able to go back to work because their injuries are too severe. Some people may also need to claim if they are forced to change jobs as a result of the accident.
Sometimes recovery can take a long time, and this should be taken into consideration. A lucky person might recover in a few weeks, but when claiming for a rock climbing accident, we need to consider the possibility that recovery could be much longer than that.
The good news is that you do not need to pay out any money to make a claim. Accident Advice Helpline works on a no win, no fee* basis so that your claim can begin as soon as you pick up the phone to speak to us. A delay in getting your compensation can be disastrous for you financially, and this is something that we are keen to avoid. For this reason, we recommend that you call as soon as you are able so that we can get things moving for you. You have nothing to lose by giving us a call, so why not do it today?
