Winter sports accident? Find out if you have an injury claim.

Skiing, tubing, snowboarding and snowmobiling are fun, but risky, winter sports. When people are injured during these activities, it is often unclear who is at fault.

Most ski resorts and snow tubing parks have people sign liability waivers and assume that they are participating at their own risk. This typically releases the facility from liability for accidents and injuries. If you fall while skiing on a properly maintained run and break your leg, you probably cannot sue the resort. However, there can be certain instances when the facility is liable.

For example, ski resorts and tubing parks have a responsibility to properly maintain their grounds and keep them safe. If they are negligent in keeping the ski lift, rope tows, runs and other parts of the property safe, they may be liable for injuries that result from their negligence.

In addition, if any defective equipment or products used by the resort cause an injury, you may have a claim against the resort and/or the product's manufacturer. These types of cases can be complex, so you will need a lawyer who is familiar with recreational accidents to help you work through the facts and understand how the law applies in your case.

We can also help people injured in snowmobile accidents. Perhaps you were injured in a collision with another snowmobile or with a vehicle when you were crossing a road. Defective snowmobiles can also cause accidents and injuries.

An experienced personal injury attorney can review your case and determine whether you have an injury claim. We encourage you to discuss your case to learn whether you can recover compensation for your medical bills and related losses.
