Claiming compensation for a skateboarding injury

For a number of people skateboarding is a great way to keep in shape and have fun, while for others it’s a great means of transportation as the slender frame of a skateboard doesn’t take up too much room on walkways. But because of this small size and the speeds at which you travel you are at risk of having a serious injury, causing you to undergo medical attention. If you believe that you have suffered an injury as a result of another person’s negligence however, then you could be entitled to make a compensation claim. 

Suffering an injury while on a skateboard can be a very painful and traumatic experience and as such you shouldn’t have to suffer the consequences in silence, which is why making a claim for compensation could be in your best interests.

Where might I look to make a claim?

There are a number of instances where your safety can be put at risk while skateboarding in which you could be eligible to make a claim. Some common examples of where this can occur include:

·         Accidents involving a pedestrian

·         Accidents as a result of a negligent motorist

·         Accidents that occur on a public walkway

·         Accidents which occur as a result of potholes and poor road surfaces

·         Accidents which occur as a result of incorrect signposting.

Who could be at fault in this situation?

If you have been the victim in a skateboarding injury and you believe it is the result of someone else’s negligence, then you could be eligible to claim. This can be made against anyone who you feel has been directly responsible for your injuries and has put your health and safety at risk; whether it’s another road user or a pedestrian. An incident such as this can be both costly and severe, as you could be left with serious injuries – so if you don’t want to suffer in silence a claim could be the best option for you.
