A new study has found that one quarter of all accidents in Austria occur on ski slopes. That’s about 50,000 accidents that occurred last year in Austria on ski slopes with a cost, on average, of 70,000 Euro per accident. The costs that add up to 70,000 Euros include insurance costs, after-care treatment and loss of wages while the individual is injured.

Hospitals in the area suggest that although the number of trauma and head-related injuries is falling, more accidents are being seen because of higher speeds, which lead to more complex injuries.
