Skiing Accident Attorneys

Skiing and snowboarding can be fun and exhilarating, but what many skiers and snowboarders do not realize how easy it is to be involved in an accident. In snow sports, some degree of fault must be found before a person or company can be found liable for ski injury or death. One of the most common forms of error involved in ski accidents is negligence.

One of the best ways to prove negligence when it comes to ski injury accidents is to determine if the opposer follows skier responsibility code. The skier responsibility code is usually posted all over ski resorts walls, lift tickets, chairlifts and more. Some of the typical guidelines include:

  • Stay in control - this includes being able to stop and avoid people and objects.
  • People ahead of you have the right away. Avoiding them is your job.
  • Stop where you obstruct a trail and remain visible from above.
  • Whenever going downhill or merging onto a trail, look uphill and yield to others.

If you are involved in a ski accident where any of the above guidelines are not followed, this could prove negligence. And in turn can help you receive the compensation that is needed for your injuries.

  • Collision
  • Lift Accidents

  • How Much Time Do I Have to File an Auto Accident Lawsuit?
    In most cases, you have around three years from the date of the accident to file a lawsuit. The deadline can be prolonged if you discovered the injury later. If you are planning to sue a government establishment, you may be required to file a claim within a few months after the accident.
  • If the Accident Was Somewhat My Fault, Can I Still Win My Case?
    Yes. However, you may not win the maximum possible settlement amount. Under Colorado's fault principles, your damages will be decreased in proportion to your fault. So, if you were 30% at fault, then your damages would be reduced by that amount in the claims. Keep in mind that the court determines fault.
  • What Is the Required Minimum Auto Insurance In Colorado?
    Legal auto insurance coverage is: $25,000 per injured victim $15,000 minimum in property damage $50,000 per accident, no matter how many victims have been affected Since Colorado is a "fault" state, this means you can file a claim against the defendant driver's insurance carrier. However, if the at-fault driver is uninsured or underinsured, there are steps you can take to get around that.
