What To Do If You Have Are Injured In A Skiing Accident Veritas Law: Defending Truth, Upholding Justice

What to Do If You Are Injured in a Skiing Accident in Grand Junction

Ski Injury Victims' Ally in Colorado's Legal Battle Field

If you've been injured, we recommend you follow these five steps to ensure your safety and well-being.

1. Calm Your Nerves

If you are injured, panicking will not help you; in fact, it will make things worse. When you calm down, you'll be able to think and inform the authorities and ski patrol that you have been injured and seek safety. Breathing in through your nose and out though your mouth is a good practice to calm down. If another skier has hit you, try and see if they are OK as well and are breathing. All these actions require focus, which you won't have if you are panicking.

2. Get the Contact Information of the Skier or Snowboarder Who Hit You.

Getting this information is vital if you plan on taking any legal action. The ski patrol should gather this information and give it to you in a report.

3. Photograph the Site Where You Were Injured.

If you were with family or friends, we suggest that you have them take pictures of the site. These pictures will help in your case by providing context.

4. Save Any Paperwork That You Have of the Accident Day.

Collect all paperwork from the day you had the accident. This means the ticket for that day, ski patrol report, witness accounts, and hospital and medical bills resulting from the crash. Any gear damaged in the incident should be kept and preserved.

5. Hire an Attorney Who Focuses on Ski Law.

Colorado has its own skier state laws, and your attorney should know them. Veritas has over 60 years' combined experience in personal injury law. Our lawyers are prepared and ready to handle your situation.
