Compensation for an abseiling accident

If you are very much involved in outdoor sports then rock climbing and abseiling is likely something that you have tried from time to time. If you are looking to descend down a cliff face, building or any other structure quickly then abseiling is what you will need to do and although this can be an incredibly fun activity, it’s important that you take the right safety precautions to ensure that you remain safe throughout.

If you have been the victim of an abseiling accident through no fault of your own, then you could look to make a claim for compensation to cover any potential costs that you have incurred as a result. This compensation claim could cover any medical costs and associated expenses that you have incurred.

What are some common problems which can occur when abseiling?

Abseiling does have the potential to be dangerous if the correct precautions are not taken and some situations where you could find that you have been the victim of negligence include:

  • Claims for faulty abseiling equipment
  • Claims for incorrect training
  • Claims for the negligence of your partner or colleague
  • Claims against a tour leader if you are part of a group.

Who could I potentially claim against?

In general you could look to claim against anyone who you feel has left you as a victim of their negligence and in this situation it could be against the manufacturer of the equipment, another person who is abseiling with you, or potentially a tour operator if you have undertaken an abseiling activity as part of a group.
