Claiming for a skiing or snowboarding accident

Skiing and snowboarding holidays are hugely popular, with millions of tourists hitting the slopes every year. While these sports are obviously not without their risks, the vast majority of tourists to locations like ChamonixLillehammer and Aspen enjoy an incident-free trip.

Your questions... answered

Who is liable for skiing accidents?

If you’ve booked a skiing or snowboarding trip with a travel operator, it’s their legal responsibility to protect you against injuries and accidents. The same rule applies to ski schools and instructors – if you’re injured or involved in an accident while taking part in a lesson, they could be at fault for failing to protect you adequately.

In rare cases, a claim can be made against equipment manufacturers. Around 5% of skiing accidents are caused by equipment failure, which could leave the equipment manufacturer open to a holiday compensation claim.

How will a skiing holiday compensation claim be assessed?

The amount of compensation depends entirely on the severity of your injuries – both physical and psychological. Our specialist personal injury solicitors will calculate your compensation claim based on the severity of your injuries plus any loss of income if your recovery required you to stay off work for some time. Counselling, rehabilitation and treatment costs will also be taken into account, as will any costs involved in modifying your home if your injuries are so severe that this is required.
