Everyone has their own idea of the perfect holiday. For some, it’s relaxing on a beach in Spain and others it’s flying down a ski slope in France, Italy or Switzerland. While skiing certainly is a fun and enjoyable getaway, it’s one of the more dangerous retreats. Given the amount of people skiing on one slope at a time, if you experience injury through a collision on a ski slope, you may be liable to claim.
Possible injuries you could suffer on a ski slope include:
- Broken bones
- Ligament and muscle damage
Who is to blame your injury in a collision on ski slope?
There is a range of ways in which you could get injured on a ski-slope, given how dangerous it is, so it’s always important to do a safety check before skiing. Even the most highly trained skiers run the risk of injuring themselves badly when they push off a slope. However, if you’re just going for a leisurely holiday ski, then it’s unlikely that you’re going to go onto any slopes that are too daunting but there are still a number of dangers and the biggest one is other skiers.
Getting into a collision on a ski slope is very dangerous as it can result in injuries ranging from broken fingers to extreme cases of paralysis and it is always difficult, despite increasing medical responses on slopes, to respond to situations where skiers get gravely injured and need to be taken to the hospital. A real danger is how difficult it is to evacuate an injured skier in an emergency given the nature of the slopes.
If you get in an accident on a ski slope, depending on the gravity of your injury, if it was in the last three years and if it was your fault or not, you might have a claim for compensation. If your injuries are serious enough you might have to take time off work and will receive compensation for loss of funds.
