Injured in a ski accident? Contact the Ski Lawyers!


If you enjoy skiing or snowboarding, then ski safety matters to you. Learn about common ski accidents and how best to avoid them. Types of skiing accidents are explained and recent ski cases described.


1433R-937030Many skiers and boarders assume that accidents are a part of the sport – but skiing is not a contact sport.   The risks of skiing do not include collisions caused by  reckless skiers or reckless snowboarders.  And the ski resort operator cannot add to the risks of the sport through negligent design or faulty operation of ski lifts.  When a ski accident occurs because of the negligence of another, then the injured skier often has a legal claim which can be made for the injuries suffered.
