If you have been seriously injured in an incident on the slopes of a Colorado ski resort, you should consider consulting with a highly skilled personal injury attorney who has significant experience handling ski and snowboard-related injuries. An experienced lawyer can help you with the details of your legal matter and obtain the compensation you deserve.

Who Can Be Held Responsible?

1.     Other Skiers or Snowboarders

Skiers and snowboarders are injured at Colorado ski resorts throughout the season, and accidents happen to experienced skiers and to those who are just beginners. While some of these incidents are relatively minor and do not result in severe injury, others are substantially more serious and often occur due to the unsafe behavior of other skiers or snowboarders. If you have been seriously injured by the negligent behavior of another skier or snowboarder, that party may be held liable for causing your injury.

2.     The Ski Resort

Depending on the facts of your ski or snowboard incident, it is possible that the ski resort may be responsible for your injuries. If the negligence of ski lift operators or the resort’s failure to maintain their ski lifts or other equipment resulted in your injury, you may be entitled to compensation.

Even though the results of a recent Colorado appellate case have limited the responsibility of the Colorado ski resorts, depending on your situation, you may still have legal recourse.

Obtaining Experienced Legal Representation

If you were injured on the slopes of a Colorado ski resort as the result of the negligence of another party, contact a personal injury attorney who has experience handling ski-related cases. Choose an attorney who understands this area of the law and the impact a ski injury can have on your health and your future. Working with the right lawyer to handle each stage of your personal injury claim can make all the difference.
