Ski lifts are a boon for skiers everywhere, taking you from the bottom of the slopes right to the top with minimal effort. But when things go wrong with ski lifts, they can lead to accidents which could result in serious injuries. Although fatalities are rare, they can happen, or you could suffer from exposure and hypothermia if you become trapped on a ski lift that has broken down or become stuck.

Well, Accident Advice Helpline can offer you ski lift injury compensation advice within three years of your accident, which could help you decide whether or not to go ahead with a claim for personal injury compensation. You’re not to blame if a faulty ski lift has left you injured, and you deserve to be compensated for your pain, suffering and loss of earnings.
Ski lift injuries
So what’s the worst that could happen if you’re injured in a ski lift? Well, you could suffer serious lacerations or minor cuts from a damaged seat or railing in a ski lift. If the ski lift carriage falls to the ground, you could be seriously injured with a head injury, spinal injury, crush injuries or broken bones. Perhaps you’ve had to jump to safety from a moving ski lift and have broken your ankle or wrist as you hit the ground.
You could even suffer a head injury if you fall from a ski lift close to the ground and it hits you as it passes. Whatever has happened, you deserve to be compensated, and if you’ve had to take time off work, Accident Advice Helpline can offer you ski lift injury compensation advice and help you get compensation for your loss of earnings.
Who’s to blame?
It’s the responsibility of the ski lift operator or the company which owns the ski lift to ensure that it’s safe for members of the public to use. If you’re injured due to their negligence, they could be held liable and ordered to compensate you for your pain, suffering and loss of earnings. When it comes to getting ski lift injury compensation advice, the last thing you want is to feel pressured into making a claim.
