Adventure activities and extreme sports have risen in popularity over the years and, as a result, so have the number of accidents and injuries caused by such activities. Taking part in such high adrenaline activities will always pose a risk of injury, however where you are injured as a result of someone else's negligence, you could make a claim for compensation.
The majority of organisers of extreme sports and adventure activities take great care to ensure the safety of patrons, but things can and do go wrong. Activities are made as safe as possible, but in some situations, it can be difficult to avoid injury. Injuries caused by extreme sports vary greatly, but generally the most common are:
- Back and spinal cord injuries
- Broken bones, dislocations and fractures
- Head and brain injuries
- Blurred vision
- Muscle, tendon and ligament sprains and strains

Operators of such activities are under a legal obligation to ensure they meet all health and safety requirements, and that the activity is made as safe as possible. Where they fail in this obligation and you are injured as a result, they may be liable to pay you compensation. Proving that your accident was the fault of the operator, or another party can be difficult. That is why it is essential that you seek the advice of a specialist personal injury solicitor.
