How did your accident happen?
As a general rule, we can potentially help you start a claim if your accident happened in the last three years and was clearly caused by another person. Synchronised ice skating takes a lot of skill and practice. Whether you are a relative newcomer to the sport or have been ice skating for years, in all likelihood you have fallen over frequently. Minor cuts and bruises are common enough. In fact, your skill generally improves after lots of relatively low-level slip-ups.
Where you can potentially begin a claim is when your synchronised ice skating accident is of a more serious nature. Someone else on the ice at the time may have knocked into you with such force that you suffered broken bones, a concussion or other physical injury. You could have sustained a cut to your body from someone else’s ice skating blades, which can cause serious injuries.
If there is strong evidence that your accident was caused by someone else, such as witnesses or visual proof such as videos or photographs, you could have a right to claim compensation. Check your eligibility by contacting us on our free, 24-hour helpline.
