Ski Accident Injuries

While winter weather conditions may wreak havoc on the roads in Colorado, they are wonderful on the slopes. Skiing and snowboarding are popular winter sports that bring travelers from all over the world to Colorado’s slopes and mountain peaks. Yet this fun can come with a devastating price. Ski accidents can lead to serious and even fatal injuries. When a ski company or resort’s negligence causes those accidents, you may be able to file a claim against the responsible parties.

What are Common Ski Accident Injuries? Ski accident injuries range from mild sprains and soft tissue injuries to more serious traumatic brain injuries and spinal cord injuries. The most common types of injuries include:

  • Sprains and muscle strains

  • ACL/MCL injuries

  • Back injuries

  • Spinal cord injuries

  • Traumatic brain injuries

  • Concussions

  • Broken bones

  • Disfigurement

  • Lacerations

  • And more

What Types of Ski Accidents Occur Most Frequently? There are many ways you can injure yourself on the slopes, but the most common types of ski accidents include:

  • Collisions with other skiers and snowboarders

  • Collisions with trees, signs, or other barriers

  • Chair lift accidents

  • Ski instructor accidents

  • Ski equipment failure

  • Improperly marked dangers on slopes

  • And more

When you go skiing or snowboarding you assume a certain amount of risk. If your injuries are due to your own negligence, then there is little a Colorado personal injury lawyer can do to help you file a claim. If your injuries are due to a ski instructor’s negligence, another skier’s negligence, or a ski company’s negligence, then your Colorado injury lawyer can help you file a claim to recover compensation for your injuries. In addition, skiing manufacturers can be to blame if your ski or snowboard was defective and this led to serious injuries.

Reckless skiers, chair lift accidents, improperly marked or maintained trails, and defective ski equipment are some of the most common ways you can be injured on the slopes by another person or company’s negligence. Yet many people are unaware of their legal rights after they are injured in a skiing or snowboarding accident. As a result, they may not realize that they are entitled to compensation they rightly deserve—and need to fully recover.
