Ice Skating Injuries
December and January tend to be the most common months in which ice skating injuries occur. This is mainly due to the abundance of temporary ice rinks that pop up in cities across the UK at this time of year. Nevertheless, there are plenty of permanent sites so injuries are possible all year round. Naturally, ice skating is an activity which risks bumps and bruises, but sometimes more serious injuries can occur. These injuries include dislocated shoulders, broken bones, lacerations and back injuries.
It is important to note that having an ice skating accident does not necessarily mean a claim will be successful. There will only be a case for compensation if we can prove that a third party has been negligent in their duty to provide a safe environment. Some examples of this may include:
- Providing unsuitable skates and other equipment
- Careless and dangerous behaviour from fellow skaters
- Inadequate maintenance of the ice rink
- Poor management and supervision during peak times

Ice Skating Accidents
As mentioned above it is normal to sustain minor injuries when ice skating. More serious accidents can pose a real risk and have a lasting impact. Common examples include:
- Fractured and broken bones
- Back Injuries
- Loss of one or more fingers
- Head injuries
This list is not exhaustive and many other serious injuries could happen on an ice rink. However, you are entitled to claim if your accident occurred due to the negligence of somebody else and it took place within the last three years.
Who is accountable for ice skating accidents?
Every action should be taken by the owners of the ice-rink to ensure that a safe environment is provided. You can only make a claim if your accident or injury occurred as a result of negligence. The responsibilities of the ice rink could include:
- Fixing faults without delay
- Ensuring that all staff are suitably trained
- General maintenance of the rink and equipment is carried out
