Best Ski Accident Lawyers in Ohio

When you think of ski resorts, you probably think of the venues that are located in places such as the Rocky Mountains. But if you want to hit the slopes this winter, you don’t have to book a flight all the way to Denver. Ohio offers world-class ski resorts that include the Alpine Valley Ski Resort and the Boston Mills Brandywine Ski Resort.

Skiing is one of the most exhilarating outdoor recreational activities. It also is considered one of the most dangerous. Flying down the side of a mountain at speeds faster than a bicycle, along with numerous natural and artificial obstacles, are the ideal conditions that exist for a skiing accident. Add to the equation high winds and frozen precipitation, and you can see that skiing poses a few risks.

If you suffered one or more injuries that resulted from a skiing accident, you should contact one of the best Ohio ski accident lawyers to help you file an insurance claim, as well as determine whether you have enough evidence to file a civil lawsuit seeking monetary damages. Finding fault for a skiing accident requires a detailed investigation that considers every possible factor that might have contributed to your injuries.

Since 1988, the team of personal injury attorneys at Morgan & Morgan has helped clients win civil judgments that exceed $20 billion for a wide variety of cases. Working with one of our Oho ski accident lawyers helps you navigate the complex legal process, which includes determining which party should assume legal liability for causing the ski accident. Not every ski accident case involves the negligence of another party. Sometimes, the victim of a ski accident is responsible for causing the accident.

Discover whether you have a strong enough case to file a civil lawsuit by scheduling a free case evaluation with one of the Ohio Ski accident lawyers from Morgan & Morgan.

  • What Are the Most Common Types of Ski Accident Injuries?

    Speed combined with obstacles can cause serious ski accident injuries. One of the first items on the agenda during a free case evaluation concerns one of our personal injury attorneys documenting every one of your injuries.

    Here are the most common types of ski accident injuries.

    Knee Damage

    Your knees do most of the work when you glide the side of a hill or mountain on a pair of skis. When you make sharp, fast turns, the considerable force placed on your knees can cause strain or torn medial collateral and/or anterior cruciate ligaments. Tearing your MCL and/or ACL ligaments can lead to months of intense rehabilitation sessions. Permanent damage means you cannot return to the slopes to enjoy your favorite cold-weather recreation activity. If you suffered knee damage at a ski resort, you might qualify for monetary damages if the owners of the ski resort failed to uphold the duty of care they are supposed to provide for skiers.

    Brain Trauma

    Brain trauma represents the most frequent cause of ski accident deaths and severe injuries. If you suffer from brain trauma caused by a ski accident, you might have to deal with a permanent disability that lowers the quality of your life. Although you should wear a helmet while skiing, a defective helmet might not offer the protection you need to withstand a strong impact on your head. If one of our personal injury attorneys determines a defective ski helmet contributed to your brain trauma injury, we might have enough evidence to file a product liability lawsuit against the manufacturer of the ski helmet.

    Skier’s Thumb

    Tumbling to the ground while on a pair of skis can produce the medical condition called skier’s thumb. The ulnar collateral ligament (UCL) stretches far beyond where it should stretch, which results in the partial or complete tear of the ligament. Skier falls often happen because another skier or snowboarder committed one or more acts of negligence. Although you should quickly release your grip on the ski pole, you might not have enough time to make the maneuver.

    Defective Ski Lift

    A ski lift that is improperly operated or maintained can cause a serious ski accident. Skiers riding faulty ski lifts might land on unstable ground or worse, fall from a substantial height. Victims of a ski lift accident can suffer life-threatening injuries, as well as injuries that require years of physical therapy sessions. Spinal cord injuries represent the most common type of injury associated with ski lift accidents. Either the ski venue or the manufacturer of the gondola car can assume legal liability for the malfunctioning of a ski lift.

  • What Are the Most Common Causes of Ski Accidents?

    One of the most important responsibilities for Ohio ski accident lawyers involves determining the cause of a ski accident. If you suffered injuries that were caused by a ski accident, your personal injury attorney will investigate the accident to discover what caused it. The Ohio ski accident lawyers from Morgan & Morgan have established a list of the most common causes of ski accidents.


    Collisions rank near the top of the list for the most common cause of ski accidents. Whether you struck an obstacle or another skier, you might have a strong enough case to file a civil lawsuit. However, not all ski collisions involve legal liability assigned to another party. Some skiers take risks they should not take and the result is a ski collision that generates several injuries. The National Ski Areas Association has created a Responsibility Code that can help you establish fault for the filing of a ski accident lawsuit.

    Many factors play a role in causing a ski collision, with alcohol and lack of training representing the most common causes.

    Improperly Maintained Resort

    Ski resort owners have a duty of care to prevent ski accidents from occurring on their properties. One of the most common examples of poorly maintained ski slopes concerns the lack of adequate care taken to maintain the slopes. Misleading or lack of signs also contributes to a poorly maintained ski resort. If you believe a ski resort should be held legally liable for causing you harm, you should immediately contact one of the Ohio ski accident attorneys at Morgan & Morgan.

    Faulty Equipment

    Manufacturers of ski equipment have a legal obligation to protect skiers. For example, a ski helmet that you purchase should prevent you from experiencing brain trauma under the standards of reasonable skiing conduct. From ski poles that break to skis that do not offer enough traction to make turns, the injuries suffered from a ski accident might be the fault of the ski equipment manufacturer.

  • How Should I Handle a Ski Accident?

    Understanding how to handle a ski accident goes a long way in determining the outcome of an insurance claim and civil lawsuit. The first thing to do is seek medical care if you suffered serious injuries. If you feel up to it, remain at the scene of the accident and complete each of the following steps. However, you should have a physician examine your injuries, even if they appear to be minor.

    Contact Ski Patrol

    Ski resorts employ ski patrol specialists that respond to accidents. Contacting the ski patrol unit at the resort or public venue where you got hurt starts the investigation of the accident. The report created by the ski patrol is a highly influential document when it comes to determining legal liability.

    Document the Ski Accident

    When you meet with one of our Ohio ski accident lawyers, you need to bring evidence that you gathered and organized. Photos of the accident scene can indicate the cause of the accident, as well as determine whether negligence played a role in causing you harm. Write down the sequence of events leading up to the ski accident to help your personal injury attorney determine which party should assume legal liability.

    Meet With a Personal Injury Attorney

    Working with one of the best Ohio ski accident lawyers can help you build a strong enough insurance claim and a civil lawsuit. Your personal injury lawyer examines the evidence you have collected before suggesting how you should proceed with your case. Dealing with an insurance company by yourself can lead to the denial of your claim. A personal injury attorney ensures you file the proper paperwork for a civil lawsuit before the expiration of the statute of limitations. In Ohio, you have two years to file a civil lawsuit for a ski accident case.

  • Where Can I Find the Best Ohio Ski Accident Lawyers?

    Finding the best Ohio ski accidents lawyers starts at home, before you might have to branch out for some online research.

    Tap Into Your Personal and Professional Networks

    The best advertising for finding one of the best Ohio ski accident lawyers is word-of-mouth advertising. Ask trusted friends and family members for recommendations.
