If you or somebody you know has suffered an accident while Nordic skating then it is reasonable to enquire, ‘Can I make a claim for an accident while Nordic skating?’
The sport of Nordic skating can involve long cross-country treks in icy and snowy conditions to reach a suitably secure stretch of natural ice, such as a frozen lake. The hazards involved in such pursuits can be plentiful so personal injury claims can be initiated if something goes wrong, and ensuring that you have prepared the correct safety equipment is necessary. It is also important to ensure that whoever arranges the skating trip is trained to a high level and is a reliable person or people that will ensure safety guidelines are adhered to at all costs.
Can I claim?
If you have had an accident while Nordic skating in the past three years, and if medical records were generated because of treatments for the injuries you received, it is extremely likely that you are entitled to make a personal compensation claim for your injuries. Valid reasons for a successful claim include an accident as a result of the negligent actions of other people, accidents as a result of using faulty equipment (such as safety equipment), and the location or site of the skating trip may be dangerous. At Accident Advice Helpline we can clarify the circumstances surrounding a personal injury claim through our expert legal team as they make a thorough investigation of each individual case.

Safety is of utmost importance in this potentially perilous sport, and if you have been injured and suspect that you have been sold or have hired equipment that is not up to the expected safety standards then action must be taken. If it is possible at the time take photographs of the circumstances surrounding the accident, and save the offending item of faulty equipment to use as evidence in the case. It is highly likely that there will be witnesses to the accident you may have had as Nordic skating is generally undertaken in small groups, and the testimony of all witnesses present at the incident will serve perfectly as evidence to be used in your individual case.
