Skiing accident compensation won for injured skier

A skier who broke his left hip while on the slopes of Cairngorm Mountain is claiming £500,000 in skiing accident compensation from the company allegedly responsible. Christopher Hutton suffered two weeks in hospital after recovering from an operation due to the accident and now claims to have restrictions in movement and pain in the affected area. Mr Hutton states that the piste was inadequately taken care of and that his accident was caused by icy lumps on the run. There were no hazard signs to warn skiers of the danger ahead according to the claimant. The resort claims that there were no clear signs of hazards and that other skiers did not have any similar problems on the run. However, the court has requested that the resort hand over their records of risk assessments carried out on the run and the names of the workers present on the day of the accident. By law, all businesses must carry out risk assessments to identify and control potential hazards to the health and safety of the public and their own staff. The case is ongoing.

Making a holiday accident claim

Skiing is an adventurous sport therefore, accidents can happen. However, when the ski slope is not maintained or there are hazards which have not been signposted, the company you booked your skiing holiday with may be at fault and you may be able to claim skiing accident compensation. Similarly, if your skiing equipment is rented from the company and is not adequately maintained, the company may be held liable if an accident or injury is sustained. If you book your holiday with a UK provider and it is a package holiday, you may be able to claim compensation from the company where there is evidence of negligence.
