Nordic skating accident claim

A Nordic skating accident claim is not as unusual as you may think. Increasing in popularity this sport has a high risk of accidental injury. Accident Advice Helpline can offer advice about making claim. Nordic skating can involve skaters travelling long distances over varying types of terrain, including frozen lakes. This highly dangerous sport requires a level of training and the correct type of safety equipment in order for the skater to be as safe as possible.

Thin ice

If you have hired equipment from a skate rink, either in or outdoor, and you suspect that the equipment was faulty and not in a good state of repair, then it is quite possible that an accident you have had could be the fault of someone else. It is the responsibility of the skating rink staff to ensure that all equipment is well looked after and in a good state of repair. For further information regarding a skating accident claim Accident Advice Helpline operate a 24-hour helpline, which is operated by our highly trained advisors.

When skating on natural ice there is a checklist of safety equipment that a skater must have. Test poles are used for checking the density of ice as well as to help the skater balance, and a good helmet must be worn. Ice claws and throw ropes can both be lifesaving pieces of equipment, and a flotation jacket, either inflatable or not, is also vital. Many people are part of a club that will organise the trips, but another very important safety tip is to ensure that there are at least three people on the skating trip, the more people that are there, the more help you have should you get into trouble.

Safety first

The basic items listed above are just some of the safety items that are needed when skating on natural ice, but if you feel that your accident in these circumstances was caused by faulty equipment then you are within your rights to make a Nordic skating accident claim. Accident Advice Helpline will help to answer any questions you may have and guide you comfortably through the claim process.

The training for Nordic skating will often take place in a controlled environment such as a skating rink, or skate park for Nordic blades. Accidents in these settings are common, and although some of them are attributed to inexperience it is also highly possible that correct health and safety measures were not adhered to by the staff at the skate park. Our team of legal professionals specialise in a wide range of claim types, and will be able to assist you with ascertaining whether the circumstances surrounding your claim are valid for a claim for compensation. We also operate a 100% no win, no fee* policy; for further information contact Accident Advice Helpline via our free helpline, or visit our website for further information.
