Call Accident Advice Helpline today for the best parkour accident advice and information on how to make a personal injury claim.
Parkour originated in France in the late 1980s. It is a holistic training discipline that is often practised in urban areas. The movements involved in parkour were developed from military obstacle course training and can include running, climbing, vaulting and rolling. It has become increasingly popular in recent years, with organised events and competitions taking place all over the world.
If you take part in an organised parkour event or group then the organisers have a responsibility to keep you as safe as possible. Trainers, for example, should make sure that any parkour activities are within your capabilities, as when parkour goes wrong the consequences can be very serious and even fatal.
Common parkour accidents
The most common parkour accidents will be from falls and trips. This can result in a variety of injuries including sprained or twisted limbs, broken bones or even brain or spinal injuries. If these injuries were caused by the negligence of others then you may be entitled to compensation.
What to do
If you have been injured in a parkour accident the most important thing to do is to seek immediate medical assistance. Hopefully you will quickly recover from your injuries. But if you do decide to make a personal injury claim the medical records of your injuries will be important evidence.Open Claim Calculator
