Can I claim for skiing accidents?
Whilst skiing and snowboarding are certainly not risk free and that we accept some degree of risk accidents that happen which are directly caused by someone else can give rise to a successful claim for compensation.
Often due to a combination of speed and inexperience on the ski slopes, skiing and snowboarding accidents are a common cause of holiday accident claims.
We are expected to ensure our own responsibility to take precautions and the same is expected of your fellow skiers, tour operators, ski centres, instructors and piste authorities whom all have a responsibility to take precautions also.
If you have been injured as a result of someone’s negligence, you may wish to consider pursuing a skiing accident claim for compensation for your injuries and consequential losses.
Our expert claims team will be on hand to offer you the guidance and support you need and to discuss the merits of your claim.
How to Make a Claim
When you get in touch with us about your claim we will guide you through the whole process of making a claim and support you at every stage.
The process starts with gathering evidence of what injury you suffered and you can help us by providing us with as much information as possible about the events and how you were harmed as a result.
To evaluate your claim we will need to know:
- Where and how were you injured?
- The date of your injury?
- Were any other guests injured?
- Details of medical attention you received?
- Whether you require ongoing treatment or rehabilitation?
Your claim specialist will use this information to fully understand the circumstances of your personal injury and establish that you have a claim.
We will also:
- Evaluate the circumstances surrounding the event
- Arrange medical treatment if you haven’t already received it
- Assess your loss of earnings through having time off work
- Assess your medical expenses whilst abroad
- Asses any medical repatriation costs
The first step is to get in touch with us so that one of our team of claim experts can conduct a free, no-obligation consultation with you.
What happens when I make a claim?
When you contact us, you’ll speak to one of our legally trained advisors, who will be able to tell you within minutes whether you have a valid claim or not.
If you do wish to proceed with a claim, we will then put you in touch with a specialist solicitor who is an expert in your type of claim.
Your solicitor will keep in close contact with you throughout your claim and they will be able to explain the process and answer any questions you may have.
We know that making a claim can seem daunting, but our solicitors work very hard to ensure that your claim is dealt with diligently and efficiently.
How much will my claim be worth?
As with most other personal injury claims there is no set rule for how much compensation you might receive for an injury abroad, whilst staying at a hotel or holiday resort.
The amount of settlement will depend on the extent of your injuries, how it has impacted your life and how much time a full recovery will take.
However, in addition to damages for any injury, pain and suffering, you may also be able to claim for any loss of earnings as well as for the cost of any medical treatment or rehabilitation that may be required.
Our personal injury solicitors are very experienced in this area, and will aim to get you the maximum compensation available for your injury.
Can I Make A No Win No Fee Claim?
All holiday illness and personal injury abroad cases taken on by our panel of solicitors are handled on a No Win No Fee basis.
This gives you peace of mind means in knowing that you will not have to pay any money up front and there will be no financial risk if your case is unsuccessful.
If your case is successful, you will only be expected to pay a contribution to your solicitor’s fees once the case has been resolved. The costs paid are usually a percentage of the compensation awarded and will always be agreed with you in advance, before your claim proceeds.
