The Pamplona Bull Run is something better seen than experienced, but every year people join in, often with some rather unwelcome results. Deaths at the Pamplona Bull Run are surprisingly rare, but injuries are common. Bull runs happen all over Spain and if you are determined to take part, checking on any tourist website will lead you easily to the details of when and where they take place. If you take part and are injured, a claim is unlikely to be successful, because the risks are obvious, but there are many other holiday activities that can result in injury which could not be foreseen.
Not all holiday activities are safe
If you like to take part in dangerous sports while on holiday you must make sure that you are fit enough. Even though you may think that you are moderately fit some of the typical holiday sports – not anything like as challenging as the Pamplona Bull Run – can put stresses and strains on you that will test you to the limit. The main thing is to not undertake anything that you suspect may be out of your fitness range. If you have an opportunity to try the sport at home, then do so – not only will you find whether you will enjoy it, but you will also be able to establish whether you are fit enough.
You can claim for sporting activities
Obviously, something as extreme as a bull run will not normally be considered as a claim for compensation, but if you have undertaken a holiday activity where the equipment, training, or supervision is of an unacceptable quality, you may well be eligible.

With many years of experience, we will be able to quickly assess your chances of receiving compensation and as soon as you decide to proceed, we will take over all the paperwork and other things that may be causing you stress and deal with it all for you.
Can you claim?
