Release Summary: The Paul Rooney Partnership, solicitors who specialise
in personal injury and compensation claims, have reported that a
third of all travel insurance claims are a result of winter sports
Release Body: Snow capped mountains, alpine scenery, and lively
après ski may be the holiday of dreams for many, but a recent
study says that treatment for injuries that occur on ski slopes
are responsible for a third of all travel insurance claims.
Paul Rooney Partnership, solicitors who specialise
in personal injury
and compensation claims, have reported that there is an increase
in holiday accident
compensation over the winter season, due to the high likelihood
of injury caused by skiing and snowboarding.
differences in skiing and snowboarding give rise to distinct difference
in the injuries picked up by participants of each sport. Skiers
are most likely to receive injuries to the knees and thumbs; snowboarders
tend to sustain wrist, forearm and ankle injuries. Injured snowboarders
tend to fit a pattern of being young men or boys who are beginners
and have had a minimal amount of instruction from a qualified instructor
(many are 'self taught' or pick up the basics from a friend).
spokesman from The
Paul Rooney Partnership commented:
is still growing in popularity with the Brits, so it's not surprising
that we see a large increase in winter sports
injury claims from people over the ski season. Compared to a
beach holiday, the chances of injury are considerably higher, so
it's especially important that skiers and snowboarders take out
a good insurance policy that will cover them in the event of an
accident on the slopes."
The Paul Rooney Partnership see a range of claims
throughout the year including slips
and trips claims, road traffic accident claims, criminal injury
claims and claims for accidents at work, but during and after the
winter season there is an annual spike in travel insurance claims
due to the high number of winter sports accidents.
