Can I make a personal injury claim for my skiing accident?

If you’ve recently sustained an injury as a result of a skiing or tobogganing accident, it can leave you feeling weak and vulnerable. You might not have expected to have an accident on the slopes when you believe that you’re in highly capable hands, however you may later have discovered that the person coaching you is not as qualified or as professional as they first appear.

There could be all sorts of reasons why the accident occurred including negligence on the behalf of the other skiers with you or your trainer. Defective skiing equipment or adverse weather conditions such as high winds or environmental problems you weren’t warned of could all be to blame.

What you can do

If you believe that your skiing accident is the result of third party negligence, you may be entitled to compensation. It’s the responsibility of the skiers who were with you, instructors, resort owners, tour operators and equipment manufacturers to ensure that you stay safe. It can even be possible to bring your case to the UK courts if your skiing or tobogganing accident happened abroad.

Do you believe you’re eligible for a personal injury claim as a result of a skiing or tobogganing accident? To be eligible for compensation you need to start your claim within 3 years of the event of injury or from the injury’s diagnosis.
