Recent Court Ruling Increases Risks for Colorado Skiers
Burg Simpson Shareholder Peter Burg was interviewed by Channel 7 TV News about a recent court ruling that increases risks for Colorado skiers.
The court decision means when a skier or snowboarder agrees to the waiver that allows them on the ski slopes in Colorado, they are essentially releasing the ski resort from liability from injuries, including those arising from the operation of chair lifts and gondolas.
Over the course of his career spanning nearly four decades, Peter W. Burg has successfully represented high-profile cases, including significant and catastrophic injuries arising from ski accidents, product liability, dangerous pharmaceuticals and medical devices, construction defects, motor vehicle and trucking crashes, and mass tort litigation.
As an expert in traumatic brain and spinal cord injury litigation, Mr. Burg has negotiated numerous multi-million-dollar settlements on behalf of his clients. Mr. Burg is committed to educating the public about the consequences posed by these injuries and helping individuals understand their legal rights.
