Britons love to ski, whether it’s on the several popular ski slopes in the UK, or travelling away for an exciting Alpine adventure; however, skiing is also a high-risk leisure activity and there is potential of being involved in an skiing accident such as a slip, trip or fall, which can result in several serious injuries.
But can you make a claim for compensation if you’ve received inadequate training from your ski instructor?
Skiing accidents due to inadequate tuition
If you have been the recipient of sub-par tuition from an instructor which causes you to have an accident, you could make a claim for compensation against your instructor.
Instructors have a duty of care to ensure that they take reasonable steps to protect their students from danger when on the slopes. You may also be able to claim compensation if the instructor puts you through a level of training that is beyond your capabilities, which in turn causes you to have an accident, or if your instructor took you to a slope that was too difficult and resulted in injury.
What kinds of injuries can occur as the result of a slip or trip when skiing?
There are a number of serious injuries that can occur as the result of a slip or trip when skiing. Some of the more common injury claims include:
- Cuts and bruises
- Broken bones
- Head, neck and shoulder injuries
If you’ve been involved in a skiing accident within the last three years and it wasn’t your fault, you could be entitled to make a claim for compensation.
