Skiing and snowboarding can result in a range of injuries, from breaks and fractures to more serious head injuries and spinal injuries. Injuries to the joints including elbow and knee injuries are particularly common.
Sometimes, accidents occur that involve a single skier or snowboarder and could not have been prevented by anyone else. For instance, a skier may land badly after a jump, accidentally fall over or collide with a tree.
In these cases, an individual is usually able to claim for their injury and any medical expenses through their travel insurer (provided they are on holiday at the time).
However, some injuries are caused by the negligence of someone else. This is known as a non-fault accident and in these cases, individuals may be able to bring a personal injury claim against the negligent party.
Common third parties in skiing and snowboarding accident claims include:
