Indoor climbing has grown in popularity in recent years, yet it’s still an extreme sport that carries with it an element of risk. Technically, you’re less at risk of a serious injury or fatality if you’re climbing indoors, but there is still the risk of being injured in an accident. If you have suffered minor or more serious injuries in an accident on a climbing or bouldering wall, Accident Advice Helpline can offer you indoor climbing injury compensation advice, on a no-obligation basis. Provided it has been three years or less since your accident, you could find you’re eligible to claim compensation for your pain, suffering and loss of earnings.
Common injuries on indoor climbing walls
Most accidents when indoor climbing are caused by faulty equipment or poor instruction. For example you could have a negligent instructor who insists you climb on walls too advanced for your experience level, which could lead to a fall or a strain/sprain. Or perhaps you’ve been climbing on a wall suited to your skill level but the ropes or other safety equipment have been faulty, leading to a fall.
Faulty hand holds on climbing walls could break away, and if you’re bouldering (where you climb without the use of ropes), you could suffer a serious spinal or head injury in a fall. Even if you have suffered cuts and bruises in a climbing accident, you could still make a claim for compensation if somebody else is to blame for your accident. Getting indoor climbing injury compensation advice is a good way to find out if you’re eligible to make a claim.
Claiming compensation for a climbing injury
Once you’re on the road to recovery after your accident, it’s a good time to think about getting indoor climbing injury compensation advice and making a claim for your injuries.
