British Tourist Injured Following Accident in Lanzarote

We are acting on behalf of a British tourist who was injured whilst skiing in Kaprun, Austria in January 2010.

Our client is a very experienced skier and was skiing down a marked piste with his wife when a snowboarder cut across his wife’s path and collided with our client from behind.

Our client was knocked to the ground and suffered a ruptured tendon in his knee.  He was airlifted to hospital and underwent surgery the following day.

He spent 5 days in hospital in Austria and then returned home to England where he also had further surgery in February 2010.

We were instructed in February 2010 to pursue a claim against the insurers of the snowboarder in Austria.  We have submitted the claim to the insurers and if a positive response is not received, we will have to take court action on behalf of our client.

"We were very happy with the outcome of our case, especially as we were initially offered nothing from the Tour Operator. Irwin Mitchell were very professional throughout and we are very happy with the outcome."
