A large number of the Staffordshire Moorlands claims we help with here at Accident Advice Helpline are in relation to injuries people have sustained while taking part in some sort of outdoor activity on and around the Moorlands.
The Manifold Way Cycle Trail
One of the most popular activities here is cycling, and there is a famous cycle trail known as the Manifold Way Cycle Trail that cycling enthusiasts come from far and wide to experience. The trail follows what was once the route of the Leek and Manifold Light Railway, and takes in some of Staffordshire’s White Peak area that is home to some fascinating rock formations and the famous Thor’s cave.
Injuries caused through the victims own carelessness cannot be claimed for
People often get injured partaking in outdoor activities, but the majority of these injuries are self-inflicted, either through lack of preparation, or carelessness. These sorts of injuries of course cannot be claimed for in terms of compensation. In order to qualify for compensation, the blame for an injury, or the accident that resulted in the injury, has to be attributable to a third party.
Other qualifying factors include the fact that the injury must be reasonably substantial, must be backed up by some sort of medical proof and finally, must have happened within the last three years.
Stafordshire Moorlands claims for cycling injuries
If a holidaymaker hired a bicycle from one of the local bike hire companies, and that bike proved not to have been maintained correctly, and as a result, caused an accident resulting in injury, then the injured person, may well have a legitimate claim against the bike hire company, or possibly the bike manufacturer if it proved to be an intrinsic design fault.
