If you’ve been injured in a sports accident abroad, you may be able to claim compensation if there’s evidence to show that the accident could have been avoided.

Our travel litigation solicitors can advise on whether or not you have a claim as part of a free, no-obligation consultation about your circumstances. Call us today for impartial legal advice about your winter sports injury abroad claim.
The window in which you can make a claim will depend on which country you were in at the time of the accident.
If you were in the UK or the EU, you can usually make a claim through the UK court system, meaning you’ll have up to 3 years to bring a claim against the responsible party. However, different time periods can apply so we’d always recommend making a claim at your earliest convenience following an accident, as this could improve your chances of making a successful claim and achieving maximum compensation for your injuries and loss.
As the time period in which you can claim varies widely from country to country, we’d recommend contacting our specialist travel solicitors as soon as possible after the incident. They can advise you on the claims process for sports accidents and provide professional legal support for a variety of circumstances.
