You may be wondering if you can claim for a skurfing accident, and Accident Advice Helpline can help with this. Skurfing is a type of water-skiing in which you use a board instead of skis, and it has become a more widely known water sport in recent years.
Although still relatively new, you can go skurfing in more and more locations around the United Kingdom. The obvious risk to skurfing is that you can fall in the water, collide with an object or other person and even lose consciousness in the water. If someone else injured you while skurfing, you could be able to make a claim for personal injury compensation.
The risks of skurfing
Skurfing can be a fast-paced water sport. As with water-skiing, skurfing entails being pulled along by a high-powered boat. With proper training, instruction or conscientious help, you can minimise the risks of skurfing. If you went skurfing through a privately run company, you are placing your trust in others’ ability to keep you safe.
Most operators are trained and focused on ensuring you have fun in a safe way, but there may be unscrupulous or badly run enterprises as well. If your accident happened because of a skurfing operator, we can help you base your claim on a breach of health and safety regulations.
Of course, you could also have been injured because someone else on the water collided with you. Another skurfer, water-skier or boat may have strayed into your path on the water, putting you in a highly dangerous situation. If this was the result of negligence or recklessness, this could be sufficient for you to raise a claim against them.
