    How to claim skiing injury compensation


    Statistically, skiing is less dangerous than snowboarding, but that’s not to say it’s without its risks. As with any extreme sport, there is a risk attached to taking to the slopes during the winter months – but you shouldn’t let that put you off. If you’re a beginner, finding the right ski instructor and ski school can make all the difference when it comes to your safety on the piste – a negligent instructor who doesn’t teach you the ropes properly could cause an accident that could leave you injured.

    You could find yourself making a claim for skiing injury compensation; and you’d be perfectly within your rights to. Let Accident Advice Helpline’s professional personal injury lawyers handle your skiing injury compensation claim on a 100% no win, no fee* basis – we’ve been helping customers since 2000.

    Common causes of skiing accidents

    Skiing accidents could be caused by a number of different things. You could be injured in a chair lift accident or suffer broken bones after a collision with a sign, tree, fence or banner. Colliding with other people on the slopes is a common cause of accidents and could lead to cuts, bruises or even serious head injuries, depending on the speed you’re travelling at when the collision occurs. Falls from height are common during jumps, or your injuries could be caused by faulty equipment such as damaged skis.

    Lack of adequate instruction could lead to serious injuries – for example, your instructor may not show you how to use equipment properly or perhaps they suggest skiing on slopes that are unsuitable for your ability level. If your ski instructor has been negligent, you could make a claim for skiing injury compensation that could provide you with the money you need to cover any medical and household bills whilst you make a recovery.
