    Where to get hang gliding injury compensation advice


    Hang gliding is an extreme sport that’s not for the unadventurous. As with any extreme sport, there are risks involved, but provided you choose a hang gliding instructor/school that holds the correct permits, insurance and licences, you should stay safe whilst you’re enjoying your flight. There are negligent instructors and schools out there, and if you have been injured in a hang gliding accident that was somebody else’s fault, you could seek hang gliding injury compensation advice from Accident Advice Helpline.

    How could a hang gliding accident happen?

    Over more than 15 years, Accident Advice Helpline has handled a number of claims for hang gliding accidents, offering free hang gliding injury compensation advice to members of the public. Here are just a few of the most common accidents we have come across:

    • A faulty hang glider causing a crash into a building, cliffs or trees
    • People using a hang glider which is too heavy for them – they may be unable to control it or could fall
    • Lack of training in how to operate a hang glider
    • Companies allowing flights to take place in stormy or windy weather, which could lead to an accident

    It’s up to the school and instructors to keep you safe, and a negligent instructor or faulty equipment could easily lead to an accident which could leave you seriously injured. If you have suffered a life-changing injury such as a spinal or head injury, or even a more minor injury such as broken bones, you could be eligible to claim personal injury compensation within three years of your accident.
