Winter Sports Injury Claims

The adrenaline, the excitement, the competition, whatever it is that draws you to winter sports, you also understand that there are risks involved. Skiing and snowboarding can be dangerous pursuits. In any event, they don’t need to be made more dangerous by the negligence of someone responsible for you while you’re on the slopes. If you have been injured in an accident that wasn’t your fault while participating in winter sports, then you should contact the personal injury lawyers at Jones Whyte at the earliest stage possible. We will do all we can to obtain the maximum level of compensation to which you’re entitled. Call us today.

Causes of Winter Sports Injuries

Although you necessarily shoulder some of the responsibility for your own safety when engaging in winter sports, there are also others on whom you rely to stay safe. Winter sport accidents that can arise because of a person’s or organisation’s negligence include: 

  • Where an instructor hasn’t given you proper training or they don’t warn you of dangers that they should have.
  • Where you are supplied with broken equipment or equipment that isn’t quite right for the sport you are engaging in.
  • Where someone operating machinery in an unsafe manner.

In order to help you in a claim for injuries sustained while participating in winter sports, we need to show that the person or body responsible for your injury owed you a duty of care and that they breached that duty. When you get in contact with us, we will discuss all the elements of your claim with you and establish that this is the case. If it is, then we will begin to prepare a claim on your behalf.
