    How to claim Segway injury compensation

    You may well have heard of a Segway and be familiar with what it is. It is an odd-looking vehicle but one that is great fun to ride once you get the hang of it. You can often hire them in tourist venues and in rural areas where you can ride on a path or track provided for that specific purpose.

    Some companies provide Segway tours that are great fun and provide the ideal way to see more of a city or area. In every case though, regardless of why you hire a Segway, you have a right to expect it to be safe and well maintained and in good condition for use. If this is not the case you could end up being injured through no fault of your own.

    Using a Segway in a responsible manner

    Segway injury compensation might come to mind if you have been hurt in an accident involving one of these vehicles. There might be proof of negligence on the part of whoever was responsible for maintaining the Segway. On the other hand you may have been injured by someone who was riding a Segway and crashed into you because they were not looking properly.

    Segway injury compensation may vary in the amount you might get if your claim is successful. If more than one person is injured, for example, the first person might get away with cuts and bruises. Conversely another person might suffer a broken wrist if they landed in an odd manner, or they could hit their head on the pavement. The nature of the specific injuries and their severity will be taken into account if a claim is successful.

    What should you do next?

    The main thing to do is to make contact with a professional injury compensation lawyer within three years of your accident taking place. This means you have an opportunity to see whether you can claim compensation for an accident of this kind that happened up to three years ago.
