    Who is liable for a camping accident?


    Determining who is liable for a camping accident is imperative if you are going to make a claim for the injuries you have sustained. There are many different accidents that can occur during a camping trip; however, you are only going to be able to claim for your injuries if you can prove that someone else has caused them. Read on to discover more.

    Who is liable for a camping accident?

    Generally, there are two types of camping claims that can be launched. The first is a claim against the campsite company. This happens when they have acted negligently or carelessly, and it has resulted in an accident occurring. For example, they may not have looked after the campsite in the way they should have, or they may have provided you with equipment that they knew was broken. The second type of claim occurs when you are seeking compensation from another individual that caused the accident. They may have put you in harm’s way during your camping trip by acting recklessly or using equipment in a way they know they should not have.

    If you can prove that someone else is at fault, you will have the basis for a successful claim. However, you cannot claim if you caused the accident, for instance, if you fell due to sheer clumsiness. If you were partially to blame, there is a chance that you may be entitled to compensation, although you will not receive as much because of your involvement.

    Aside from proving that someone else is to blame for the camping accident, there are two other crucial factors when making a claim. Firstly, you must have been injured within the past three years, as this is the time limit on all personal injury cases. Secondly, you must have received professional medical attention. This is because the doctor will provide you with a medical report, and this is used to determine how much compensation you will receive. You will find it virtually impossible to claim if you have not seen a doctor.
