If you were injured while skiing at a ski area, you may be able to recover monetary compensation from the ski area for your injuries.
Who Is Responsible?
While many risks of skiing are considered “Inherent Risks” that are not actionable, this is not always the case. Even if a risk is typically considered “inherent” to the sport of skiing, if the risk can be eliminated by the ski area with reasonable care, then the risk is not considered an “Inherent Risk” and the skier or snowboarder may have a claim. As an example, even though “snow conditions” are usually considered an inherent risk of skiing, a skier can bring a claim if they are injured by an unusual or excessive buildup of man-made snow on an open ski trail. Every case is different and fact-specific. To see whether or not you might have a claim for your ski lift accident, call or email now for a free consultation.
