Ski Accident Attorneys

Ski accident law is different from state to state and can be complicated. If you are injured in a skiing accident, whether because of a collision with another skier or because of equipment failure or malfunction, you may be entitled to compensation for your injuries. Some skiers and snowboarders speed or pass others in an unsafe manner, so crashes are a common problem and are often serious. If you have been injured in a ski accident, contact a ski injury lawyer by completing this form for a free case evaluation.

Ski Accident Collisions

You may be hesitant to get legal help for a ski accident, assuming that you will not be able to collect from the skier who is at fault for your injuries. However, many skiers have homeowners or renters insurance that covers them for such incidents. Most states put the responsibility on the uphill skier to avoid colliding with other skiers or boarders below them. If someone uphill runs into you and causes injuries, you may be entitled to compensation for injuries or losses.

Claims for Malfunctioning Equipment

Snowmobiles, ski lifts and other equipment used at resorts must be kept in good working order. If the equipment is not properly maintained, the malfunctioning items could cause you to suffer from injuries. If the equipment is in good working order but is not operated properly by ski resort staff, you may also suffer from injuries. The resort is responsible for its equipment and the actions of its employees.

Damages You May Collect

Damages you may be able to collect include:

  • Medical bills
  • Future medical bills
  • Lost wages
  • Future lost wages
  • Replacement or repair of personal property
  • Pain and suffering
  • Loss of companionship
  • Loss of consortium
  • Loss of life
  • Loss of enjoyment of life
  • Punitive damages

Punitive damages are awarded only in the event that the person who caused your injuries was grossly negligent. This type of compensation is used as a punishment for the at-fault person’s or resort’s negligent actions or inactions, including:

  • Intentionally speeding or skiing in a reckless manner, knowing that they could cause harm to others
  • Operating snowmobiles, ski lifts, or slope grooming equipment in a reckless manner, knowing that they could cause harm to others
  • Getting into physical altercations with other skiers
  • Running ski lifts or other equipment knowing that it is malfunctioning and could cause harm to others
  • Any other grossly negligent or intentionally harmful behavior by other skiers or resort employees
