    How to claim rowing injury compensation


    We’ve all seen the Boat Race being contested between Oxford and Cambridge each year. However, for those who have an interest in rowing, the reality is usually a little different. You can row on your own in a rowing boat, or perhaps pack a picnic and take your loved one out onto a lake for a romantic lunch for two. Alternatively you might enjoy taking up rowing as an actual sport, doing it regularly and getting fitter as a result.

    However you approach rowing, you’ll want to make sure you do it properly. If you have a poor rowing action you could end up causing yourself an injury at some point. However, there are also injuries that may potentially happen because someone else causes them, not you. You may already have first-hand experience of this.

    Carelessness while rowing

    If you are rowing a boat along with other people, you would expect everyone to take care with their oars so as not to hit anyone else. If someone waved theirs around, it could hit you in the head or elsewhere on your body, causing what could be a nasty injury. Similarly, if another boat was nearby and the person in charge of the boat rowed or manoeuvred their way into yours, this could hurt you as well.

    It is occasions such as these that can potentially lead to compensation claims being made. Rowing injury compensation might be a possibility for you to claim if you suspect someone else was the cause of your injury. You would need to be able to prove this in order for your claim to be a success, but you should always get professional advice regardless of whether you suspect you can prove it or not.
