Sacramento news reports that a 23-year-old man has died in a Davis skydiving accident. According to an initial investigation, the skydiver was killed after he fell out of his harness. The man was skydiving at Skydance Skydiving, near the Yolo County Airport and was described as an experienced skydiver.

If you have been injured in a personal injury accident, or have lost a loved one, it is important to consult with a California personal injury attorney right away. A knowledgeable Sacramento accident lawyer can investigate all of the possible causes of an accident. Where recklessness or negligence leads to a personal injury or death, it may be possible to file a lawsuit or wrongful death claim to recover the compensation you deserve.

While this accident remains under investigation, several questions are raised that are relevant in any investigation involving an personal injury or death while participating in a high-risk activity.

For example, did the man sign a waiver and release before skydiving?

Many times before partaking in dangerous activities such as skydiving parasailing, or even hot air ballooning, participants must first sign a waiver releasing the company from any responsibility for an accident. However even if you sign a wavier, in certain instances a company or instructor of a dangerous activity may still be found liable. For example, if a company is found to be negligent in some way and this negligence leads to another’s harm or death, it may be held responsible to pay compensation. Examples of negligence may include the failure to perform adequate background checks on trainers, or the failure to properly maintain equipment or to follow proper safety protocols.

Another issue to consider is whether the manufacturer of the product used in the activity provided a defective product or part. Where a manufacturer supplies a defective product, it may be held responsible in a product liability lawsuit.

Finally, were there any unreasonably dangerous conditions on the property? If so, the owner of the property where an activity takes place may be held responsible in a premises liability lawsuit.

Here the investigation into what went wrong in this skydiving accident continues.
