What Are Quad Bike Activity Personal Injury Claims?

To make a quad bike activity personal injury claim you must be able to prove that a third party’s negligence caused your injury. Negligence refers to the breach of duty of care applied by legislation.

A duty of care can be defined as the responsibility to take practicable steps to ensure safety.  The Adventure Activities Licensing Regulations 2004 (AALR) and Activity Centres (Young Persons’ Safety) Act 1995 (ACA) means there is a legal requirement for certain activities need to be reviewed and undergo a safety inspection and be licenced.

The Health and Safety at Work etc. Act 1974 (HASAWA) is a key piece of legislation that applies a duty of care. The legislation runs alongside others to establish health and safety regulations to ensure the safety of employees and individuals in places of work. 

We encourage you to keep reading to understand how legislation can keep you safe and how you can claim if you have proof that negligence led to your injury. For more information on the quad bike activity personal injury claims process, contact our advisors today. 

What Is A Quad Bike?

Causes Of Quad Bike Activity Accidents

Quad bikes, as with any motorised vehicle, can pose significant risks which are usually mitigated by the proper health and safety regulations. When you visit an activity centre to partake in quad biking there must be a lot of emphasis on your safety. The following could mean an accident that could have been avoided takes place: 

  • Quad bikes are poorly maintained faulty brakes cause an accident.
  • The instructor is not trained correctly and leads a group of bikers on the wrong trail
  • No safety helmets are provided when an accident happens a rider suffers a severe head injury
  • The weather conditions are ignored and a treacherous terrain results in a quad bike collision.

If the cause of the injury was due to supervisory or operator negligence then you may be able to claim. For more information on the quad bike activity personal injury claims process, get in touch today.

Outdoor Activity And Quad Bike Duty Of Care

Operators of outdoor activity centres owe users a duty of care to ensure that they have taken reasonable steps to ensure that the service and equipment they are providing are safe. 

They can do this in the following ways:

  • Providing and maintaining safe systems – Work systems such as equipment and tools should be maintained to a reasonably safe level. Failure could result in malfunctions such as overheating machinery causing contact burns.
  • Provide sufficient training and supervision – All employees should receive free relevant training to perform their jobs reasonably safely. Supervision training can also help to spot danger with other participants on quad bikes. Inadequate training and supervision could cause accidents such as people colliding with other drivers or objects suffering broken bones or other concussive injuries. 

The AALR and ACA are specific pieces of legislation that specifically apply to conducting activities. The Health and Safety Executive (HSE) states that an adventure activities licence is required when certain activities are conducted for young people under the age of 18. It allows inspections of equipment and management systems to see if they are adequately safe for use.  

If you believe you suffered an injury due to a supervisor’s or employer’s negligence around health and safety regulations, then get in touch with our advisors now. 

Protective Clothing And Equipment

According to the Personal Protective Equipment at Work (Amendment) Regulations 2022 all employees must be provided with free, relevant personal protective equipment (PPE) where necessary.

A failure to provide PPE would be an example of negligence. The employer would have breached their duty of care if the correct PPE wasn’t provided to ensure reasonable safety. 

If an employer breaches their duty of care causing you harm, please get in touch with our advisors today and they can provide free advice on quad bike activity personal injury claims.
