A parasailing accident can be a devastating experience, and if you have suffered an injury as the result of an incident while participating in this very popular sport, you may be entitled to make a parasailing accident claim and receive compensation. At Accident Advice Helpline we specialize in helping individuals just like you understand their rights under the law when it comes to making a personal injury claim and, if you decide to move forward, we work to get you the compensation you deserve.
If you are taking part in extreme sports it is important for you to take all reasonable precautions to keep yourself as safe as possible. If you are not happy with the steps being taken by others to ensure your safety, you should seriously consider whether or not to participate in the activity. If you feel unsafe at any time, do not be shy about pointing out your concerns to others – particularly instructors or guides – or choosing not to participate at that time.
Types of injuries
Parasailing accidents can cause a broad range of injuries including broken bones, skin lacerations and bruising, muscle damage and internal injuries. The most serious parasailing accidents can result in severe head and/or neck injuries, the consequences of which can be long-lasting and potentially permanent, particularly if they are not dealt with promptly and properly.
First and foremost, it is imperative that you get the best treatment possible as soon after an accident as you can, even if the injuries initially appear to be minor. Under certain circumstances this may involve seeking private medical treatment, which can be expensive; however, you should not be discouraged from taking such action as your health is the most important thing.
Who is to blame?
Once your injuries have been looked at and you are on the way to recovering, it is important for you to carefully consider who was responsible for your parasailing accident. If, in spite of your best efforts to keep yourself safe, you are injured as the result of someone else’s negligence, you may be able to make a parasailing accident claim against the party or parties who were, indeed, at fault. A successful claim can help cover the costs of treatment and travel incurred as a result of the injury, as well as lost wages and income, psychological counselling and other injury-related expenses.
