We all love to enjoy life away from work and for many of us, this involves different recreational activities on the weekend or during the holidays. Whether it be camping, boating, four-wheel driving, going to the movies, surfing or clubbing we all want to have fun with family and friends.
However, through no fault of our own injuries can occur when we are enjoying recreational activities. If you have been injured you should seek legal advice from a specialist personal injury lawyer as to whether you can bring a claim for your personal injuries.
Obviously, no claim will arise in certain circumstances as there has been no negligence by a third party. However, on some occasions, there is negligence leading to your injuries and a claim may be maintained.
It must be noted that no claim in Queensland can be made if you are injured doing a “dangerous recreational activity”. This would include bungee jumping, sky diving and the like.
However, no matter how you are injured it is essential that you obtain urgent legal advice from a specialist personal injury lawyer to find out if you have a claim. A specialist lawyer will be able to advise you on this and what you need to do if you do have a claim.
Any claim will be under the Personal Injuries Proceedings Act.
