    How to claim abseiling injury compensation


    Do you have a head for heights? You will need one if you are going to give abseiling a try. The basic idea is to use a rope to help you descend over a sheer drop. This could be a mountain face, but it could also be a building in some cases. The descent is controlled so you cannot fall, but instead you go down in measured stages.

    Everyone who tries this sport has to do it for the first time. This can be the most nerve-wracking moment of all – going over the edge and relying on the advice and support of your trainer to help you navigate the drop itself. Thankfully most instances of abseiling pass without incident.

    What if something does go wrong?

    No one wants to be involved in any kind of accident at any time in their lives. However, with abseiling, you can see the dangers are perhaps more pronounced than in other situations. If something goes wrong you could fall a significant distance. As with any fall, this may potentially open the way to suffer serious injuries including crush injuries, head injuries and injuries to the neck and spine. In short, a fall could change your life significantly.

    Abseiling injury compensation might be a possibility to claim if it turns out someone else was responsible for your fall. If you hire a company to teach you how to abseil, for example, you would expect them to provide proper equipment that has been checked and confirmed to be safe. If they do not do this, and they don’t have proper health and safety measures in place – such as risk assessments for the equipment and procedures for example – you could have a strong case to argue for compensation.
