What injuries can I claim for?
The short answer to that question is, any injuries that were caused by the negligence of others. Parkour emerged in the late 1980s and people took part informally. It is a holistic training program that often takes place in urban areas and is based on military style obstacle courses. In recent years, parkour has become increasingly popular and organised groups, events and competitions have been arranged.
Common moves in parkour include running, jumping, climbing, vaulting and rolling. Participants might expect to get more than their fair share of bumps and bruises. However they also have a right to expect anyone organising parkour events to minimise the risk of more serious injuries. Serious parkour injuries can range from cuts, sprains and broken bones to serious brain and spinal injuries. Accidents can even be fatal.
What to do in the event of an accident
Most importantly, you must seek medical advice. Hopefully you will recover quickly, but if you do decide to make a personal injury claim, medical records of your injuries will be important evidence.
Record all the details you can remember about the accident and get the names and contact details of as many witnesses as you can. A photograph of the obstacle that caused the injury can also be useful.
Keep records and receipts of any expenses you incur or financial losses you suffer. Your solicitor may be able to claim them back as part of your compensation package.
When do I start the claim?
Ideally, you will call Accident Advice Helpline as soon as possible after the parkour accident. Sometimes this may not be possible. Perhaps you were busy focusing on your physical and mental recovery, or maybe you did not initially realise the financial impact your injuries would have. As long as we can start the claims process within three years, you may still be entitled to compensation.
