Car surfers expose themselves to serious personal injuries

A new hobby has emerged in the USA called car surfing - riding on the outside a car while it's moving. People usually do this from trucks because of the height and flat roof structure, but all vehicles can be used in car surfing, which often results in accidents and serious personal injuries.

In worse case scenarios, this hobby can result in fatalities. At worst, extremely serious personal injuries can occur. While the car is being driven by another person, the car surfer climbs out of the window and on to the roof of the vehicle.

Sometimes the consequences are catastrophic but no accident compensation claim can be made because of the nature of the accident and the fact that the people involved are participating in a dangerous activity as a sport.

People ride on the bonnet, roof or boot lid of moving cars or are towed by vehicles while skateboarding or roller blading. In some instances, people car surfing leap from one moving vehicle to another.

Although this hazardous activity is extremely dangerous and often deadly, it has become a video and online craze with teenagers trying to outperform each other with life-threatening stunts.

However, other car drivers who collide with people car surfing have a legitimate claim for accident compensation if they were not willingly participating and suffered personal injuries through no fault of their own.
