Ice yachting injuries
Despite all the safety provisions that have been instituted in recent years, ice yachting remains a dangerous sport. Minor injuries from things like falls and blows to the head are common, but there is also a significant risk of severe injuries, including brain damage and crushing damage to limbs that necessitates amputation. Coping in the aftermath of an injury like this can be very difficult, and the compensation process is there to ensure that, if someone else was responsible for your accident, they make a substantial contribution to the cost of your rehabilitation. You may never be able to return to normal but you should still be able to have a decent quality of life.
Even with minor injuries, it can be well worth making an ice yachting accident claim. Aside from ways in which this can help you personally, it can also help to draw attention to problems in the sport, such as poor event supervision. It is in large part because of people making challenges like this that ice yachting has become as safe as it is today, early enthusiasts took their lives in their hands.
