    Accidents due to ski equipment failure


    There is nothing worse than getting injured on your holiday. The mood of what should be an enjoyable period just disappears and then you’re left with hefty medical bills and a lot of pain. Also, depending on the injury, you may well even be limited to your house.

    This is unacceptable if the accident was not your fault. At Accident Advice Helpline, we feel strongly about not letting guilty parties get away with negligence or carelessness, especially when it results in the injury of another person. You have the right to claim for compensation if your injury has occurred in the last three years and if you sought medical attention following your injury.

    Accidents due to ski equipment failure

    Going skiing is undoubtedly thrilling. At the same time it can be equally nerve-wracking. There are many horror stories you hear about people breaking their bones on the slopes because of failure of their equipment.

    Common causes of ski and snowboarding accidents include:

    • Collisions with other snowboarders and skiers
    • Chairlift accidents
    • Poor instruction from instructors
    • Accidents due to failure of equipment

    If you suffered an injury because of ski equipment failure you can sue the company that sells the equipment as there is clearly something wrong. If your injuries mean that you cannot work, you can claim loss of funds.

    Common skiing accidents can result in compensation too. The more serious the injury the more likely you are to receive compensation as it means your life is greater impacted. It’s often quite tricky to ascertain who is to blame for a skiing accident if you don’t remember the whole event as some accidents can result in concussion and short-term loss of memory which complicates things. This is where having witnesses comes into play. These will help your claim as it’s likely they will be the only way to prove your claim if you can’t remember the accident.
