About ice skating accidents

Falling over on the ice is expected when you’re learning to skate or practising a new move, so the odd bruise here and there is not surprising. However, other injuries on the ice can be much more serious, with some serious injuries preventing professional skaters from continuing with their chosen career.

In these cases, negligence is often a factor when appropriate action hasn’t been taken by a third party. Some examples of negligent behaviour at an ice rink includes:

  • Not providing suitable skates and other equipment
  • Failing to maintain the ice
  • Poor management during busy times
  • Reckless behaviour from other skaters

Types of injuries

Minor injuries happen regularly when ice skating, however, more serious accidents are also a real risk and can have a significant impact on your life. Injuries include:

  • Severe muscle damage
  • Lacerations
  • Loss of one or more fingers
  • Head injuries
  • Back injuries
  • Fractured and broken bones

Regardless of how you have been injured, if your injury was caused by somebody else’s negligence, then you are entitled to make a claim for compensation.

Who is responsible?

It is the responsibility of the ice-rink owners to maintain safety on the ice and take every action possible to reduce the likelihood of serious ice skating accidents. This means keeping up with general maintenance of the premises and equipment, amending faults quickly and efficiently, providing suitable training to all employees and supplying proper equipment for work to be carried out correctly.

Should you have an accident and it be proven that ice-rink management acted negligently, then you will be able to make a compensation claim.
