    Skimboarding injury advice


    When you go out skimboarding, you may expect a few falls and slips – but nothing more serious than that. Skimboarding has become increasingly popular in recent years and involves skimming along waves as they come into the shore. As with most water sports, there is always the risk of falling in the water or hurting yourself on your board or other object when you slip. However, sometimes a minor accident can turn into something more serious – you can lose consciousness under the water, fracture a bone or cut yourself on an object in the water. After an experience like this, you may be looking for good skimboarding injury advice.

    We have been helping people claim financial compensation for accidents they did not cause themselves since we were established in 2000.

You should not be concerned that your skimboarding accident may be too rare for our solicitors – we can find a good match for you among our talented team.

    Your skimboarding injury

    Skimboarding can be practised at various levels. You may have only just started skimboarding, or have a few years of experience under your belt. Even the most experienced skimboarders can have minor accidents.

    Perhaps though, your skimboarding accident was more serious. You may have had a nasty knock while colliding with someone else in the water, fallen or even lost consciousness. Perhaps another skimboarder failed to pay attention to your presence, a wind surfer knocked into you or a passing Jet Ski or boat threw you from your skimboard. There may have been hidden obstacles or floating debris in the water that other people have carelessly discarded.

    How to start you claim for compensation

    To start you claim for accident compensation, we need to determine who caused your accident. Perhaps it was another individual on the water at the time, or the authorities in charge of ensuring a safe beach. You can strengthen your claim by collecting as much information about your skimboarding injury as possible. Someone may have been filming you at the time of your accident, or there may be a number of witnesses.

    Document as much as you remember, including the time and location and the contact information of any other individuals involved in your accident. If you had to seek medical help, ask your doctor for a copy of your medical record. If you have to regularly visit the hospital or attend counselling sessions, it is advised to keep the receipts for any expenses incurred.
