On February 27, 2013, Robert Brown, age 76, was stopped on the side of the Spruce run at Breckenridge Ski Area when another skier came from uphill and ran over the back of Mr. Brown’s ski equipment, causing him to fall over on his right side. Mr. Brown sustained multiple right-sided pelvic fractures with internal bleeding. Due to the presence of internal bleeding, Mr. Brown had to be evacuated from Summit County to a Denver-area hospital where he was hospitalized for 10 days. Mr. Brown’s total medical expenses were $75,000.00. The case settled for $175,000.00 shortly after a lawsuit was filed in Summit County District Court.
