Compensation for injuries caused by a faulty chairlift

If you are a lover of alpine sports such as skiing or snowboarding then you will understand how tiring it can be, what with the constant pressures you put on your body and the constant trips. So that’s why it is understandable why people use chairlifts as a means of getting around with ease, as they are a reliable form of transportation which can safely get you to where you want. Unfortunately, this isn’t always the case though and you could end up suffering a serious injury as a result.

There are many problems that could occur with a chairlift, so if you happen to ride in one that is faulty and you get injured, you could be entitled to some form of compensation. A fall from a chairlift can be quite painful, while being trapped on one could be equally traumatic, so if this has affected you then you shouldn’t have to suffer in silence.

Where could mistakes have been made here?

There are a number of situations where you could receive an injury as a result of malpractice, with some common examples of where you might see this happen including:

·         Claims if you are injured as a result of a faulty chairlift

·         Claims if you suffer from hypothermia if you are stranded on a chairlift

·         Claims if you fall from a chairlift

·         Claims against a failure to provide safe equipment

Who might you look to make a claim against?

If you have been injured as a result of faulty equipment then you could be entitled to make a claim, especially if your health has been put at risk. In an event such as this, you could be able to claim against either the company who are responsible for the welfare of the chairlift or the operator who failed to uphold the safety of passengers. This can be a quite traumatic situation, so if you feel that you haven’t received the highest standards of safety you could be entitled to make a claim against them. It is important to remember however, that you must be able to prove your case in order for it to be successful.
