Indulge in ‘dangerous’ sports?
You still should be safe!
Here in the UK, we are blessed with many different outdoor situations; we have the wonderful coast, the urban landscape as well as the countryside in which to play. We can take up a range of sports from kite surfing to diving.
In fact, if you fancy having a go at diving and don’t fancy travelling to the tropical climate of far flung places, you can try it out here in the UK. There are many dive centres, including the flooded quarry at Carpernwray. Based not far from Carnforth in the north of England, this dive centre is a popular spot for both novice and experienced divers.
But no matter what you are trying out – or even if you are an experienced person at the activity – you should be safe. Hazards should have been identified and, if they cannot be eliminated completely, then the danger needs to be managed. If not, and people are hurt through no fault of their own, then after medical treatment, then may need the help of an expert injury solicitor in Capernwray.
How do you find the right, specialist injury solicitor in Capernwray for you and your case?
The answer is simple – you call Accident Advice Helpline on 0800 689 0500 or you can use their website www.accidentadvicehelpline.co.uk and submit a contact form.
With their phone lines staffed by professional, knowledgeable advisers, they will talk through your claim and then, if you have an eligible compensation claim they will pass your details to one of their injury solicitor in Capernwray – but only with your permission! Nothing at AAH happens without your explicit instruction to do so and only after you have received all the information. AAH pride themselves on being a law firm that inform their clients, allowing them to make an informed choice as to what is right for them.
But, if you participate in a dangerous sport, surely you do so ‘at your own risk’?
To a certain, extent yes you do. But, the operator needs to ensure that you fully understand these risks and that they also appreciate that your inexperience will mean you are unable to make the right choices, under pressure.
This is why many ‘dangerous’ sports such as diving have strict guidelines and controls when it comes to learning to dive, who you dive with during the novice stage and ensuring you have all the training and practice needed to be able to get yourself out of the situation.
Simply giving you mask, fins and an air tank and then pushing you into the water is not good enough! We know this doesn’t happen in the UK but sometimes, things do go wrong. If they do and you end up being hurt, needing to take time away from work or suffer life changing injuries, you will need the financial recompense of compensation to help you build a new, adapted life.
If you have been hurt, then you may need the help of either one of our injury solicitor in Capernwray or another specialist legal team here at AAH. Call us – we can help!
