    How to claim bungee jump injury compensation

    We’ve all got that friend who has done a bungee jump and had an amazing time – but we’ve also heard the stories about bungee jumping accidents which have left people permanently disabled or suffering from horrific injuries. The good news is that provided the organisers of the bungee jump have ensured the equipment is properly set up and that a risk assessment has been carried out, you’re probably going to complete your jump safely and enjoy the experience of a lifetime.

    If you have been injured after a negligent jump organiser put you at risk, claiming bungee jump injury compensation could be an option. Chances are, you won’t even need to go to court as Accident Advice Helpline can usually process most claims in full over the phone.

    What could go wrong during a bungee jump?

    There are any number of things that could go wrong during your jump, most of which can be avoided if proper safety checks and a risk assessment are carried out:

    • If your height and weight are not recorded properly, the wrong length of bungee cord could be used
    • A faulty cord could snap, sending you plummeting to the ground
    • A damaged harness could break
    • You could hit the crane or object you are jumping off if it is not set up properly
    • You could be injured on landing awkwardly
    • If you hit the ground, lack of a safety mat or an inadequate safety mat could lead to injuries

    Injuries suffered during a bungee jump should be recorded by the event organisers and you may need to take time off work to recover from your accident. If you have suffered life-changing injures such as spinal or head injuries, you could even be left permanently disabled and unable to return to work or look after yourself. Accident Advice Helpline can make sure you get the compensation you deserve, on a 100% no win, no fee** basis.

    How much compensation will you get?

    With years of experience handling personal injury claims, Accident Advice Helpline’s lawyers will work out your settlement, taking into account your pain, suffering and any financial losses incurred – such as lost wages from taking time off work. This will determine how much compensation you’ll receive, but you could head for our website and take the 30-second test right now, to see how much bungee jump injury compensation you could be entitled to.
