Snowboard Collisions Lawyer

Colorado is a snow-lovers paradise. Some of the best skiing and snowboarding in the country is available throughout the state, including Aspen, Vail and Breckenridge.  

The Colorado Ski Safety Act sets forth rules, regulations and guidelines for the ski industry. Among the most important aspects of the act is the fact that it outlines a duty of care owed by uphill skiers to avoid collisions with those downhill.

These are complex cases best handled by an experienced Colorado Snowboard Collisions attorney. Contacting an experienced law firm in the immediate aftermath of an accident is the best thing you can do to protect your rights and the financial well-being of you and your family.  

Ski and Snowboard Injury Claims 

Common types of ski resort injuries include:  

  • Collisions with other skiers.  
  • Collisions with fixed objects, such as trees. 
  • Ski lift injuries. 
  • Injuries resulting from poorly designed or maintained slopes.  
  • Failure to warn of hazards.  
  • Poor training or lack of proper supervision.  
  • Defective ski rental equipment. 
  • Slip and fall injuries.  

When an injury is caused by the negligent acts or omissions of another patron or a resort or slope operator, victims are entitled to compensation. Like other types of personal injury claims, your Colorado ski injury attorney must prove:  

  • that the person being sued (the defendant) owed a duty of care to the plaintiff; 
  • that the defendant breached that duty of care; 
  • that the defendant’s breach was the cause of the injury; and 
  • that the plaintiff sustained monetary damages from his or her injuries.

Colorado Ski and Snowboard Injury Lawsuits 

The Colorado Ski Safety Act outlines responsibilities of skiers, ski lift companies, ski operators and ski lift operators. Under the law, a defendant is presumed to be liable if violation of a safety law, regulation or ordinance has occurred and injury resulted. Under the act, negligence is presumed for any person or company that violates the requirements of the Ski Safety Act.  

Obligations of ski operators under the act including:  

  •  The installation and maintenance of a sign system, including notice of slope difficulty.  
  • Proper lighting and operation of snow-grooming equipment.  
  • Conspicuous maintenance notices.  
  • Removal of careless or reckless skiers.  
  • Proper lighting and operation of snowmobiles.  
  • Proper slope maintenance.  
  • Proper training of employees and slope supervisiors.  

Additionally, the law imposes responsibilities upon individual skiers, who can also be found liable for causing or contributing to an injury accident. Skiers must:  

  • Know their ability and skill level.  
  • Maintain control and speed.  
  • Maintain proper lookout for persons downhill and avoid collisions.  
  • Properly cross slopes.  
  • Not ski under the influence.  

The very nature of ski slopes means that conditions change daily, and sometimes hourly. When an injury occurs, victims are best served by immediate consultation with an experienced Colorado ski injury law firm.
