How much compensation can I claim?

The amount of compensation that you can claim for any of the above accidents will depend on your individual circumstances.  We will endeavour to recover what is known as general damages, which is an award of money given to you to reflect the type of injury you have sustained and takes in to account pain, suffering, loss of amenity and general inconvenience.  We will also be able to recover special damages which are all those losses and expenses incurred as a direct result of the accident and include:

  • current and future loss of earnings
  • medical expenses, both while you are on holiday and back in the UK
  • care and rehabilitation costs
  • loss of enjoyment from your holiday

Skiing injury claims

Winter sports involve an element of risk, but if you have been injured due to someone else’s mistake, our solicitors will be able to help you make an skiing or snowboarding injury claim. 

Accidents happen for all sorts of reasons including:

  • collisions with out of control skiers and snowboarders
  • inadequate or faulty equipment or machinery
  • improper training from an instructor
Accidents at sea and cruise injury claims

Accidents often happen while getting on or getting off ships.  Passengers and crew can also be injured in any number of ways on board.  If an accident that causes injury is the fault of a ship’s crew or its operator, you could be entitled to compensation. 

Accident abroad claims

Thankfully, much like in the UK, there are usually laws in place to help people injured in accidents overseas.  The law around seeking compensation can differ from country to country, and the procedure may be different depending on whether you were on holiday or working abroad.  In either situation, we have the expertise to help you.  If accidents take place in different countries, then there may be different time limits that have to be adhered to, and we will ensure that you receive sufficient advise in relation to these periods.

Time limits

The time limits for claiming for personal injury compensation differ widely between countries.  Please ensure you contact us as soon as possible after your accident has taken place to make sure your claim is successful.
