Our team have assisted in recovering compensation for skiing, snowboarding and skidoo accidents, as well as for other winter sporting incidents.
Winter accident claims are most commonly a result of:
- Faulty equipment
- Poor skiing instruction
- Faulty ski lifts
- Improper signage or missing barriers on the run
- Inexperienced skiers colliding with others
The most common injuries our team deals with:
- Torn ligaments/tendons in the knee or hip
- Broken wrists and arms
- Head injuries
- Broken ankles
If you have booked a package skiing holiday and your skiing accident was part of that organised holiday, you may be able to claim compensation under the Package Travel Regulations 1992. This enables you to claim against the operator in the UK. We also rely upon other European and international laws to help us determine whether you have a valid claim if it falls outside of these regulations.
If another skier has collided into you after deliberately ignoring slope safety rules, you will often be able to claim against that person’s insurance.
