    Can I claim for a roller-skiing accident?

    Can I claim for a roller-skiing accident?

    If you were involved in a roller-skiing accident, you may be thinking: can I claim for a roller-skiing accident? To find out if you can, you should contact Accident Advice Helpline. We were founded in 2000 to help people make claims for financial compensation for accidents they did not cause themselves. If your roller-skiing accident was caused by someone else and happened in the last three years, you may be able to claim accident compensation.


    Roller-skiing has become an increasingly popular sport in recent years. You wear a rollerblade on each foot and typically propel yourself along with two long roller-skiing sticks. You can roller-ski on the road or any hard surface; it is not a snow sport and does not require snow or ice. It can be a fast and furious activity and typically needs a lot of skill and experience if you want to progress to a proficient level.

    As with any fast-paced sport, there are risks involved. Falling down is common, although many little slips or falls have only a limited impact on you. Sometimes, however, you can have a more serious accident. If your roller-skiing accident was caused by someone else, you could be able to claim financial compensation.

    Your accident

    The first thing you need to be able to show is how the other person caused your accident. Someone with whom you were roller-skiing may have gone too fast, unsafely overtaking you and causing you to fall. Or you could have been surprised by another road user who did not pay sufficient attention to your presence. You may have been knocked over by a cyclist, car, bus or even a pedestrian or runner. In fact, all road users need to pay attention at all times to what is happening around them: if your accident was caused by someone’s inattention, this could be a basis for a roller-skiing accident claim.

    Write things down

    You can strengthen your roller-skiing claim by writing down what happened, since writing things down will help you remember the accident in more detail. The basis of a claim can include witness statements, your medical records, photographic evidence and any receipts for expenses related to your accident.
