    Our expert help

    From the moment you make contact with one of our trained advisers you will be working with expert professionals. They will discuss with you the likelihood of a successful claim and help you make a decision on whether to proceed.

    Injuries that can be claimed for

    Extreme ironing may result in a wide variety of injuries depending on where the accident took place. It might involve a spinal injury after a fall from a rock if you were ironing on a mountain or water inhalation if you were attempting to iron under the sea. Any injury that is serious enough to need medical attention may be able to be claimed for if we can prove that it was caused by the negligence of a third party.

    Proving negligence can be tricky, especially in a sport like extreme ironing where many of the risks are part of the thrill of the activity. However in some aspects of the sport your safety may rest on the actions of a third party.

    For example if you have recently bought or hired equipment, such as climbing gear this should be in a good state of repair. In an accident caused by faulty gear we may be able to prove the negligence of a third party.

    If you are not sure if you are eligible to claim you have nothing to lose by calling us to find out.

    Making a successful extreme ironing accident claim

    To make an extreme ironing accident claim we will need a range of evidence to back your claim. Medical documentation of your injuries is vital, so make sure you get medical help for your injuries after your accident.

    Record as much detail about the accident as you can while the details are fresh in your mind. It is also helpful if we have independent witnesses to back your claim, so try to get the names and contact details of anyone who witnessed your accident.

    Photographs of your injuries, the accident scene and the hazards involved are a very powerful form of evidence. Now that most mobile phones have cameras it is becoming much easier to get this form of evidence.

    When to claim

    Ideally you will start your extreme ironing accident claim soon after your accident, as soon as you become aware of the costs starting to mount up. However this may not always be possible, especially if at the beginning you wish to focus on your recovery.

    As long as you start your claim within three years of your accident Accident Advice Helpline will be pleased to help.

    Call us now on our 24 hour freephone 0800 689 0500 from a landline or 0333 500 0993 from a mobile phone.

    Our advisers will be pleased to give you free, no-obligation advice on how to make an extreme ironing accident claim.
