I wouldn't mention the ski boarder and just say you fell and injured yourself whilst skiing. They should still have to cover you. Isn't that what insurance is for?

Even without personal insurance, an EHIC would cover your medical bill

Sobering and useful message, Karen. Thanks for posting it. I am surprised you need details of whoever went into you - it's not like it's a car accident!

Would you care to 'name and shame' the insurance company as a warning? Regardless I will be checking with my own company when I come to renew.

Wishing you a speedy recovery

re:Insurance

I now always have my health card and a copy of my insurance policy in my ski/board jacket pocket , also its worth scanning and printing off a copy of your passport (photo page ) and keeping that with the other documents. stay safe. Smile
