While skiing and snowboarding comes with certain risks, Colorado ski resorts have a responsibility to minimize those risks and keep their slopes safe. This involves maintaining their slopes, performing safety checks on ski lifts and equipment, and ensuring that employees follow proper safety protocols. When a resort fails in this duty, tragic and deadly skiing and snowboarding accidents can occur.
Yet ski resorts aren’t the only ones responsible for skiing and snowboarding accidents. Irresponsible or reckless skiers may also be to blame. Skiers and snowboarders who ski under the influence of drugs or alcohol can cause devastating and catastrophic accidents on the slopes. Likewise, young skiers who may be taking dangerous risks or trying inappropriate stunts can mistakenly injure you or someone you love. Sadly, over 40 people die in skiing and snowboarding accidents every year that could have been prevented.
Skiers and snowboarders in Colorado can be injured in a number of ways. Collisions with other skiers, improperly marked ski trails, and poorly maintained ski equipment are just a few of the ways a skier or snowboarder could be injured. These injuries can be severe and can lead to permanent disability. Head injuries and back injuries that are sustained on the ski slopes can often lead to a lifetime of pain and suffering. When this occurs, a Denver personal injury attorney can help you seek justice.
After a ski accident you may be hurt and confused. Ski resorts and other skiers will often use this confusion to try to pin the blame on you. They may say you took an unnecessary risk or that you knew the risks of skiing when you signed up. This is not always the case and an experienced Denver personal injury attorney is often needed to establish true liability.
