World Cup skier launches accident compensation claim

Matthias Lanzinger, a former professional skier from Austria, is set to make a personal injury claim against the International Ski Federation (FIS) after a World Cup skiing accident caused him to lose the lower part of his left leg.

However, it is not only the FIS that Lanzinger is seeking to hold liable for his skiing accident; his personal injury lawyer argues that the extent of the injury was made far worse by a delay in treatment, so is claiming that a specialist clinic in Oslo should also be considered liable for medical negligence compensation.

The FIS is believed to deny liability for the personal injury claim, so it may take several years for the case to reach any kind of settlement.

Before his skiing accident, Lanzinger was considered one of the world's most talented alpine skiers, having been named Junior World Champion in 2000.
