If you have been injured while riding a Segway and the accident was caused by somebody else’s negligence, you may be entitled to make a claim for compensation, regardless of whether the incident took place in the UK or abroad.
Our road traffic accident solicitors are skilled in making claims for injuries caused while using all types of vehicles, including Segways.
How JMW Can Help
Segways are used for various activities both indoors and outdoors, including safaris and assault courses, and are popular both in the UK and abroad.
Our team will ensure that your injuries are properly assessed and all losses are accounted for in the compensation you receive as part of your claim. This might include medical costs, time taken off work, future loss of earnings, and any other incurred expenses.
We provide a comprehensive service that includes advising clients on the merits of their case, regular updates on the progress of their claim and whether the compensation they are receiving is appropriate for the pain and suffering caused.
Is There a Duty of Care?
In the UK, there is no governing body or formal qualifications for instructors. Training usually happens in house, meaning skills, techniques and abilities will vary considerably.
Participants should be provided with safety equipment, which includes knee and elbow pads, a helmet, back protector and gloves. Recommendations should be made about the type of footwear depending on the environment, for instance, for off-road or urban tours, sensible footwear might include walking boots or trainers.
Also, good practice for centres should be the use of a head camera to record every session, as footage could be used as evidence in cases.
These recommendations may not be followed by Segway centres in other countries.
