Adventure sports can be fun and thrilling but can also of course be dangerous and lead to injuries including, tragically, sometimes very serious injuries. When accidents occur, we have the expertise to help.

We have substantial experience in acting for both civilians and military personnel injured whilst engaged in activities such as:

Those responsible for organising such activities have a responsibility to minimise the risk of accidents. Appropriate risk assessments should be carried out, and repeated as and when appropriate, and guidelines and measures implemented, failing which serious injury can occur, giving rise to liability in Law.

Similarly, providers of training / instruction in, and equipment used for, such activities owe duties of care to practitioners and can be liable for accidents.

We have a wealth of experience in this field.
