Your Right to File a Ski Accident Claim

In an effort to limit their liability, many ski resort operators require their patrons to sign a release form prior to occupancy or use of the facilities. These documents typically waive a signer’s right to sue the resort if they are injured. However, these waivers are not always enforceable, especially if you are seriously injured. Our lawyers can help you determine whether you are eligible to file a lawsuit even if you signed one.

The most common types of ski accidents that lead to a claim include:

  • Downhill skiing and snowboarding accidents
  • Ski lift accidents
  • Collisions with objects or other people
  • Inadequate slope maintenance
  • Negligent instruction or supervision

How To Determine Fault in a Skiing Accident

Many times, there isn't enough for a full lawsuit following a ski accident. First, you must be able to establish fault by showing negligent behavior from the other skier. It can be helpful to read through the Skier Responsibility Code could be a good place to begin. These skiing guidelines created by the ski industry to promote safety.

If a skier violated any of these guidelines, you may be able to prove neglience on their part for the ski accident. Contact one of our skilled Salt Lake City ski accident lawyers to schedule a consultation.
