Extreme sports are more popular than ever, and even when all the right precautions are taken accidents can and do happen; if you are unfortunate enough to sustain an injury whilst parasailing it is absolutely vital that you get the right parasailing injury advice as soon after your accident as possible. If your accident was someone else’s fault, you may be able to make a claim for compensation.
At Accident Advice Helpline our free 24–hour helpline is available seven days a week, and our highly trained team of personal injury solicitors will walk through the claim process with you to ensure that you fully understand your rights under the law. If you decide to move forward with a claim, our specialist solicitors work on a no win, no fee basis, so there are never any upfront charges.
Parasailing is a dangerous sport and parasailing accidents often result in very serious injuries which can include broken bones; serious cuts and bruises; and in some cases severe head, neck, and spinal cord injuries. These latter injuries in particular can have a devastating long-term impact on both your physical and emotional health and well-being.
Parasailing accidents occur for a number of reasons including unsafe or improperly maintained equipment; improper instruction or inadequately trained instructors and supervisors; and unsafe weather or environmental conditions. When taking part in parasailing it is absolutely vital that you are completely comfortable with the safety of all of the equipment and that the facilitator is operating in a proper and professional manner.
Making a claim
In order to make a claim for compensation after you are injured in a parasailing accident you need to believe that a third party is at fault and that it is as a result of their negligence that you were injured. The process of making a claim can seem daunting; however, at Accident Advice Helpline we work to streamline the process and give your claim the best chance of being successful.
For your claim to succeed, you will need to have evidence that supports your case. Some examples of effective evidence include first-hand eyewitness accounts; photographs which show any faulty equipment you were provided with; and medical statements from the doctor and/or paramedics who treated you immediately after the accident. Additionally, information regarding the precise nature and severity of your injuries and the impact that it has had – and is likely to continue to have – on your personal and professional life will be required.
