Weeeeee! There’s nothing like the feeling of whizzing down a zip wire, whether you’re crossing a huge rocky chasm or high in the treetops. Adventure parks across the UK have zip wires installed suitable for children and adults of all ages, and they’re the perfect activity for adrenaline junkies looking for a thrill. But these types of attractions can also be dangerous, and if you’ve been injured whilst riding on a zip wire you could be entitled to claim personal injury compensation. Accident Advice Helpline’s expert advisors have over 15 years’ experience and we can offer you zip wire injury compensation advice if you’ve been injured and somebody else is to blame. But what has caused your accident?
Common zip wire accident and injuries
Whilst the majority of people using a zip wire have no problems, accidents can and do happen and there are a variety of different things which could go wrong. By far the most common types of accidents to happen on zip wires are those caused by faulty equipment. You could get stuck in mid-air, fall from a zip wire that hasn’t been connected up properly or even get your hair or clothing tangled in a zip wire, suffering serious injuries.
Whether you’ve suffered cuts and bruises, broken bones or serious spinal injuries after a zip wire accident, you can make a personal injury claim within three years of your accident – and the zip wire operator could be held liable for your injuries. Whilst most claims are able to be settled over the phone, there is a chance you may have to go to court if your claim is more complex (for example, if you have suffered life-changing injuries or if the zip wire operator denies liability). Accident Advice Helpline will be there to support you every step of the way.
