For Extreme Sports Accidents and Adventurous Training Injury Claims
Have you suffered an adventurous training injury, whether in the Armed Forces or because of an extreme sports accident? If so, you can may be able to make a claim for compensation. Our specialist lawyers have handled thousands of claims for people who have suffered injury through extreme accidents, including military injuries via air and road, explosions, parachute incidents, weather injuries, shootings, and more.
Claiming for adventure and extreme sports injuries
Together with the UK’s top law firms, we can you claim compensation if you’ve suffered injuries during adventurous training in the Armed Forces.
By its very nature, serving in the Armed Forces is a uniquely dangerous occupation; having to fight in battle, of course, has unavoidable risks. However, the Ministry of Defence has a duty of care to minimise any dangers that could have been prevented.
Extreme sports accidents
The popularity of extreme sports has never been stronger. From rock climbing to abseiling, kayaking and beyond, extreme sports attract thrill-seeking participants left and right. Practising at high speeds and even high altitudes, extreme sports rewrite man’s potential and expand on the possibilities of traditional sports.
But injuries come with the territory. However, this doesn’t mean they aren’t preventable. While base jumpers, mountain bike enthusiasts and more aren’t immune from adventure and extreme sports injuries, there should be certain protections in place to limit danger.
