Aviemore in Scotland, is a popular places with tourists all year round but winter is when this small town comes alive.
With excellent snow for skiing, many people take to the slopes, either as complete novices or experienced ‘black run’ skiers.
Everyone can enjoy the great outdoors all year round, and providing we are safe, there are rarely any problems. But incidents and accidents can happen; when you have been injured as a result of an occurrence that wasn’t your fault, is the ‘under taken at own risk’ enough of a defence? An injury lawyer in Aviemore may not agree.
When trying a new sport for the first time, we understand we are taking a risk but, we also place a lot of faith and trust in the instructor. We are told they are highly trained, experienced professionals and we trust they are going to look out for us, making sure we are as safe as possible.
But what happens if this isn’t the case? What happens if you are hurt?
Many outdoor courses are expensive. They are usually priced so high to take into account the insurance premiums that the centre or instructor pays to be covered to work in the high-risk industry that they do.
If you are hurt in a skiing accident and think that you may be entitled to compensation, Accident Advice Helpline could help you through the whole claims process with an injury lawyer in Aviemore acting as your legal representation.
How do you know if you have a claim?
AAH has developed a brilliant assessment tool, which can tell you very quickly if you have a compensation claim …or not.
The 30 second test revolves around the following key elements of any personal injury claim:
- Did the accident happen within the last 3 years?
- Was the accident someone else’s fault or as a result of someone else’s negligence?
- Did you seek medical advice and/or treatment for your injuries?
Providing you answered ‘yes’ to the above three questions, an injury lawyer Aviemore would be interested in taking on your case.
As they say, “the devil is in the detail”!
