If the idea of a parachute jump doesn’t terrify you, you’re probably a bit of an adrenaline junkie, which means you’ve considered the risks this extreme adventure sport can pose. Risks aside, a parachute jump is not only a great way to overcome your fear of heights, it’s also a great personal challenge and/or a way to raise money for the charity of your choice. But what about when things go wrong during a parachute jump? There’s the potential for serious injury to occur, and if you or someone you love have been seriously injured, you could get parachute jump injury compensation advice from Accident Advice Helpline.
Parachute jump injuries
If your parachute fails to open or doesn’t fully open, you could suffer serious injuries during a parachute jump, or someone you love could be seriously injured or even killed. Landing at speed without a properly deployed parachute could lead to life-changing injuries to your limbs, head or spine which could leave you permanently mentally and/or physically disabled. Then there’s the risk of more minor injuries, such as a broken wrist, if your arm gets tangled in the parachute cords, or a neck injury if your hair becomes caught.
However you’ve been injured, getting parachute jump injury compensation advice should be your first step if you’re considering making a claim for personal injury compensation. You could find out if you have a viable claim, then take some time to think about your next steps.
