Gorvins’ specialist Partner, Gary Boyd, has substantial expertise in claims arising from parachuting and other aeronautical accidents and has represented many clients including members of the Armed Forces in such claims. Gary has successfully represented individuals who have suffered serious spinal and other injuries life-threatening injuries whilst engaged in such activities.

Adventure sports such as parachuting, paragliding, parascending or the flying of light aircraft can be extremely dangerous but the risks can be reduced/ avoided if appropriately addressed.

You may therefore have a claim if injured due to breaches of duty of care by others arising from issues such as those in the following, non-exhaustive list:

  • Defective equipment;
  • Poorly maintained equipment;
  • Absence/ unsuitability of personal protective equipment;
  • Inadequate risk assessment;
  • Dangerous conditions;
  • Inadequate training and instruction; and/or
  • Negligent actions/omissions by others involved in the activity

To accurately assess whether someone injured in such an accident has sound grounds for a claim, and to successfully pursue such a claim, requires a team headed by a Solicitor with specialist knowledge and experience. At Gorvins, we have a wealth of experience in spinal injury claims and the requisite connections with other professionals including barristers, liability experts and medical experts to successfully pursue your claim and recover the compensation you need and deserve.

To obtain the highest compensation settlement for you we will optimise the evidence of the severity, and full consequences, of your injuries, your losses of earnings, medical/ rehabilitation expenses, travel and other expenses and the full effects of the injuries on the life of yourself and your loved ones.
