Ice Skating Injuries

The most common time of year to be injured whilst ice skating is between December and January. At this time of year, many temporary ice rinks pop up in cities across the UK. However, there are hundreds of all year round ice rinks too. Ice skating by its nature comes with risks of bumps and falls that are likely to happen whilst learning to skate. Unfortunately, sometimes more severe injuries can be sustained, such as broken bones, dislocated shoulders, lacerations and back injuries.

Having an accident whilst ice skating doesn’t mean a claim will be successful. We will need to prove that a third party has been negligent in taking the necessary precautions to provide a safe environment. If this is the case, there may be a case for a compensation claim. Some examples of negligence at an ice rink include:

  • Careless and dangerous behaviour from other skaters
  • Inadequate maintenance of the ice rink
  • Not providing suitable skates and other equipment
  • Poor management and supervision during busy times

Accidents whilst ice skating

Minor injuries are common when ice skating, however, more serious accidents are also a real risk and can have a significant impact. Common injuries include:

There could be many other injuries but regardless of how you have been injured, if your injury was caused because of somebody else’s negligence, then you are entitled to make a claim for personal injury compensation within three years of your accident.

Who is responsible?

Whilst we all need to take some responsibility for our own safety when taking part in any sports, it’s important to determine if it was, in fact, negligence that caused your accident. It is the responsibility of the ice-rink owners to maintain a high level of safety at the ice rink. They should take every action possible to reduce the likelihood of serious ice skating accidents. These actions might include:

  • keeping up with general maintenance of the premises and equipment
  • amending faults quickly and efficiently
  • providing suitable training to all employees.
