Roller-skiing is a popular sport that you practice on a road or other hard surface route. It can be used to build your stamina or to improve your skill and speed. You wear a type of roller skate, which looks like a cross between a set of skis and classic roller skates, and propel yourself along with two hard frame sticks. Roller-skiing cannot be practiced on ice or a snowy surface, so you have a much greater choice of areas and times of year to go out. Although the sport can be exhilarating and challenging, it can also be risky.
Making a claim for financial compensation
To make a claim for financial compensation through Accident Advice Helpline, you will need to show that your roller-skiing accident was caused by someone else. We help thousands of people every year make claims for accidents they did not cause themselves. The process is relatively straightforward. When you contact us, we initially try to find out what happened in your accident and who was responsible for it.
It would strengthen your case if you document as much as you can remember about your accident, including the time, date, location, who else was with you at the time and who caused it. If you have witness statements, photographic or video evidence, a medical record of your injury and receipts for any accident-related expenses, this would be the time to talk us through these.
If we think you have a valid claim for compensation, we will then pass your details to one of our expert personal injury solicitors. Your solicitor will advise you about the best course of action and what your claim could be worth. Your roller-skiing accident claim is in expert hands once we take your case. Since 2000, we have been representing people who suffered injuries they did not cause themselves and we have a strong track record of success.
Your roller-skiing accident
Roller-skiing can be practiced if you have only been out a few times or if you have reached a high level of skill. It is likely that you have slipped or fallen a few times while roller-skiing, which is almost inevitable when going out. You are likely well-prepared for sudden falls by wearing protective gear. However, your roller-skiing accident may have been significantly worse. Perhaps you were knocked over by another roller-skier, or another road user may have caused you significant injuries. You could have been shocked by someone’s sudden, unexpected behaviour, causing you to fall or impact with a building or wall.
Whatever the precise details, if your accident was caused by someone else, you should call us today to check your eligibility to claim financial compensation.
