    UK climbing accident statistics


    UK climbing accident statistics vary depending on where you choose to go climbing. Attending an indoor climbing centre is widely perceived as safer than climbing in the outdoors, especially if you are inexperienced. No matter what your level of experience, it is important to ensure you take all safety measures possible to prevent any accidents.

    Why Are UK Climbing Accident Statistics Important?

    A database of climbing accidents, including minor and severe accidents, can help in preventing future injuries. UK climbing accident statistics can be analysed and then preventative measures advised as a result. If monitored on an ongoing basis, the climbing community can ensure that these measures are having a truly positive impact and helping to reduce the number of injuries incurred by climbers.

    However, whilst UK climbing accident statistics can be very useful, it is also worth remembering that every accident is different and it is up to you, your climbing supervisors or trainers, and climbing centre owners to minimise any risks wherever possible.

    Can I Make a Claim for My Climbing Accident?

    Depending on your circumstances, you may be able to make a claim for compensation following a climbing accident. To be eligible for compensation, your climbing accident:

    • Must have been someone else’s fault, not your own;
    • Must have happened at some point within the last three years; and
    • Must have resulted in injuries requiring medical attention.

    To check your eligibility to make a claim, Accident Advice Helpline have a quick and simple online tool to enable you to do so in less than half a minute. The 30-second test will not only confirm if you are eligible to claim, but will also provide you with an estimation of how much you will be entitled to based on the type and severity of your injuries.

    I Am Eligible – What Should I Do Next?

    If you are able to make a claim for compensation following your climbing accident, you should take steps to set the process in motion as soon as possible. If you have used the Accident Advice Helpline 30-second tool, one of our professional and friendly advisors will be in touch to provide you with assistance and further information.

    If possible, it is worthwhile to gather all information about your accident that may benefit your claim. This could include:

    • When and where the accident happened;
    • Contact details of your climbing partner and any other witnesses to your accident;
    • Details of the climbing centre, if the accident happened at an indoor facility; and
    • Your medical report, which your GP will be able to provide.

    Regardless of whether you currently have this information, it is always better to make your claim sooner rather than later. Over time, you may forget key details of your accident which could provide evidence in support of your claim. To make your claim today, simply call Accident Advice Helpline on 0800 689 0500.
