    Compensation Claim in Upminster

    Extreme Sports

    Extreme sports tend to fall into two categories – those you might see on humour shows  in which a person takes their life into their own hands to perform a stunt which no sane person would attempt and those activities which are actually sports but with added thrill!

    However, the common denominator in both categories is the ease with which something can go wrong. Whilst wild stunts can often leave those injured with severe and long lasting injuries, there is a feeling that the person took the risk and therefore should carry the burden. However, with extreme sports, there is often an element of risk to a sport or pastime which should be safe and supervised. Therefore if something goes wrong and the person partaking is injured as a result then they can make a compensation claim Upminster.

    The Popularity of Extreme Sports

    Extreme sports which mix traditional methods with adrenaline filled risks or new manoeuvres are increasingly popular. Whilst the term used to refer to sports and activities such as skydiving or rock climbing, as times have changed and the need for adrenaline and risk has increased, the types of activities included within the term have also changed.

    Now they might include white water rafting, bungee or base jumping, snow and skate boarding (with or without tricks and stunts) and wake-boarding.

    Such is the popularity of these activities that many private centres now offer experiences in them. These popular days out or short breaks involve a qualified instructor, some willing participants and a lot of fun.

    When Extreme Goes Bad

    However much a person wishes to experience a rush of adrenaline and a healthy dose of fear, in the case of an organised extreme sport, they also expect to remain safe and free from harm as they participate.

    However, things can go wrong and when an extreme sport goes wrong then the result can be very severe injuries, such as fractured bones, spinal or head injuries or even death.

    The organisers of any sporting event which is open to the public have a duty of care to those members of the public to take all necessary and reasonable steps to protect their safety. This duty of care is given by UK law and in the event that an incident happens which causes injury to the participants then those injured people have the right to make a compensation claim in Upminster.
