Wing walking could certainly be classified as a high-risk activity, so it is worth taking on board some considered wing walking injury advice before you set out. When members of the public pay a private company for an authentic wing walking experience, they should expect the most stringent safety requirements to be met.
If something goes wrong, the results could easily be fatal. That’s why if you have been injured during a wing walking experience because the operators did not follow correct safety procedures, you could be entitled to make a legal claim for compensation with a reputable law firm like ours here at Accident Advice Helpline.
How to avoid a wing walking injury
Most companies that offer wing walking as a recreational “thrill-seeking” experience have strict guidelines as to who is allowed to take part. A minimum standard of physical fitness is required and anyone over a certain age usually has to undergo a medical examination to make sure they are up to taking part.
While the experience is certainly physically demanding, the biggest exertion is on the heart and nerves, as the adrenalin surges through your body. In fact, wing walking with proper safety harnesses in place almost never results in a serious wing walking injury. Accidents are most likely caused by one of three factors: panicked or foolish behaviour on the part of the wing walker, pilot error, or mechanical breakdown.
Accident Advice Helpline have over 15 years’ experience in dealing with personal injury claims of all kinds, so we are the best law firm to contact for wing walking injury advice. The common factor in successful claims is that the injury must be due to the negligence of another party. If you suffered a wing walking injury because of your own actions, then you would not be able to make a claim for compensation. If, however, the pilot was at fault the plane or safety harness was not properly maintained, or the harness had not been correctly attached, then you could have grounds for a compensation claim, as your safety has been compromised by another’s carelessness.
