Finding a personal injury lawyer in Langar at Accident Advice Helpline
If you ever try parachuting and get injured through no fault of your own, a personal injury lawyer in Langar at Accident Advice Helpline can help you to launch an injury claim.
The British Parachute School at Langar
Although considered by some to be a very scary thing to do, parachuting or sky diving is a very popular leisure activity and sport. The British Parachute School at Langar has been a full-time professional skydiving centre since 1977, and it provides some top quality training for both beginners and veteran skydivers.
Most normal jumps are taken from a Cessna Grand Caravan aircraft from an altitude of 13,000 feet. Beginners can opt to use the static line system, which means that the parachute opens automatically, and for an initial taste they can jump in tandem attached to an experienced instructor. You’ll experience about 50 seconds of freefall.
Parachuting is obviously risky, although statistically you’re in more danger of incurring an injury in a road traffic accident. Minor injuries such as twisting an ankle or picking up the odd bruise are an accepted fact of life, but if your injury is more serious such as a broken leg or severe concussion, and you believe that the club you visited were in some way negligent or that your training was in some way faulty, you may be able to claim compensation. A personal injury lawyer in Langar at Accident Advice Helpline could help you to initiate a personal injury claim.
When you’re not insured
Although to some it may seem an odd thing not to do, many people do not take out insurance when they go parachuting. It may be a confidence thing — let’s face it, if you thought you were going to have an accident, you probably wouldn’t do it in the first place. But that doesn’t mean that you cannot claim compensation if you are unlucky enough to pick up an injury. You just need to satisfy certain criteria:
- The reason you were injured must be attributable to a third party;
- The injury must be serious enough to warrant a claim and medical proof will be required;
- The injury has to have been sustained within the three-year period immediately preceding the date of your claim.
