How are skiing injury and snow boarding compensation claims classified?

A common type of personal injury claim, injuries sustained through winter sporting activities (such as snowboarding accidents or skiing claims) are difficult to classify. This is because the range of damage that could be done can vary on a massive scale.

For that reason, we always advise taking photographic evidence of both your injuries and the location in which it took place. This will help our team and a Court to decide how much compensation you should receive.

What are the causes of winter sports injuries?

Remember that even if your injury isn’t listed here, you may still be eligible to make a claim. For more information, contact our team.

Who can claim skiing injury and snow boarding accidents compensation?

So long as your winter sports injury took place within the past three years, you’ll be able to make a claim for any snowboarding accidents or skiing injuries that you’ve experienced.

If you’re claiming on behalf of a child, you can either be appointed as a litigation friend or allow them to pursue the skiing injury claim themselves once they turn 18 years old.

Can I claim for whiplash skiing injuries compensation?

Colliding with another skier or snowboarder can cause whiplash in extreme circumstances. If the incident was through no fault of your own, you may be able to claim compensation.

Where does the winter sports compensation come from?

This depends on who was liable for the snowboarding accident. It usually is paid by their insurance provider.

Establishing liability for skiing and snowboarding injuries

In order to make a claim for your skiing or snowboarding injuries, we’ll need to know who was at-fault. This can be:

  • A product manufacturer if your equipment was faulty or inappropriate
  • Another skier or snowboarder who caused a collision
  • A hotel or resort who failed to adhere to health and safety regulations
  • A skiing or snowboarding instructor who provided incorrect or partial training
  • A person incorrectly operating machinery used for winter sports, such as a ski lift

If your skiing injury claim took place abroad, there’s no need to worry. We have international solicitors who understand varying jurisdiction so you’re still able to pursue a claim.

How much compensation could I get for my skiing and snowboarding injuries?

The amount of compensation that is awarded for snowboarding accidents depends largely on the severity of your injuries. Generally, two types of payout are awarded:

  • Compensation for the pain and suffering you’ve experienced, called ‘general damages’.
  • Compensation to cover your travel expenses, costs of medical treatment and any loss of earnings. This is called a ‘special damages’ payout.

For an accurate prediction on your likelihood of receiving either of these payouts, we’d advise discussing your case with a legal professional. However, you can use our online compensation calculator tool for a rough estimate.
