Obtaining Compensation When You are Injured in a Ski or Snowboard Collision

Winter is on its way, which means ski and snowboard season is finally upon us! When the snow begins to fall, skiers and snowboarders from across Colorado head for the slopes to enjoy the exhilaration of winter sports. But as more and more fun-seekers flock to our ski resorts, the number of severe ski and snowboard-related injuries increases exponentially.

If you were hurt in a ski or snowboard collision that was not your fault, or you were injured by the negligence of the ski resort itself, you may be entitled to financial compensation. Burg Simpson’s award-winning Colorado ski accident lawyers have over four decades of experience handling ski and snowboard injury cases, and we are here to help you with your personal injury claim. Our attorneys will work to help you obtain compensation for:

  • Medical expenses: Your personal injury lawyer at Burg Simpson will seek reimbursement for the medical expenses you incurred as a result of your injury. They will also seek compensation for the estimated costs of future medical care.
  • Lost income: The injuries you sustained while skiing or snowboarding may have made it impossible for you to perform your job. If you are unable to work, you may be entitled to compensation for your lost income and the impact of your injuries on your ability to earn future income.
  • Damage to your equipment. Your personal injury attorney can also help you obtain compensation for your equipment or other personal property that was damaged as a result of the incident.

Burg Simpson’s ski and snowboard injury trial lawyers have over four decades of experience handling these types of personal injury cases. Burg Simpson’s expertise in this area of the law is reflected in the many successful verdicts and settlements we have secured for our severely injured clients.

Obtaining Evidence Following a Collision

If you sustain a serious injury on the Colorado slopes due to another party’s negligence, you may not be able to gather the necessary evidence to support your claim. If possible, ask witnesses to document the scene by taking pictures with their phones. Images of the parties involved, the areas above and below the site of the collision, both party’s tracks in the snow, and damage to your equipment can help you prove negligence. Also, ask for the contact information of the party who hit you and those who witnessed the incident.
