    Compensation for injuries during a charity event


    Taking part in a charity event is not only great fun, it helps you to raise money for the charity of your choice. Here are just a few examples of charity events which have the potential to cause injury, should something go wrong:

    • Bungee jump
    • Abseiling
    • Zip wire
    • Climbing

    The organisers of a charity event must ensure that the equipment used is well-maintained and fit for purpose, and that a thorough risk assessment has been carried out, to identify anything that could go wrong. They should also ensure that those taking part are aware of the risks (you may have to sign a waiver for some events) and that you have been shown how to use equipment before the event begins. If they fail to do so and you sustain injuries during a charity event, they could be held liable. Whether you are seriously injured or have suffered minor injuries, you could make a claim for personal injury compensation.

    Making a claim for personal injury compensation after sustaining injuries during a charity event doesn’t have to be complicated – just make sure you contact a personal injury lawyer within three years of your accident, as there is a time limit in place for claiming.

    What injuries have you sustained?

    You may be lucky enough to escape with minor injuries such as lacerations and bruises, but with many charity events involving heights, you could be seriously injured if something goes wrong. Here are a few examples of the types of injuries you could sustain:

    • Fall from height could cause spinal injuries, leading to paralysis
    • Head injuries including brain injury
    • Injuries to your legs
    • Broken bones
    • Loss of limbs
    • Death

    If someone you love has injured or been killed whilst participating in a charity event, you may be able to make a claim for personal injury compensation on their behalf.
