Who’s Responsible for Your Skiing and Snowboarding Accidents?

A person injured in a skiing or snowboarding accident caused by the negligence of another party may be unsure of who exactly is legally responsible for their injuries. This is, in large part, because the liability for an accident can change depending on the cause of the injury. In different situations, different parties may be considered legally responsible for an injury to someone else.

If you’ve been injured while skiing or snowboarding, you may be able to pursue compensation for your injuries if the accident was caused by a negligent instructor, resort manager, or owner. While these activities may be inherently risky in some situations, that’s no excuse for another person’s mistakes to cause a skier or snowboarder injury. For more information about your legal options, contact a Denver personal injury lawyer from Hull & Zimmerman, P.C., at (303) 423-1770.

Liability with Skiing and Snowboarding Injuries

Skiing and snowboarding are often considered a relatively dangerous activity in their own right. However, someone who contributes to another person’s injury due to reckless or careless actions may be held at least partially responsible for that injury. Liability can work in the following ways:

  • Teachers can be held responsible for leading students into dangerous situations
  • Other skiers or snowboarders can be held liable for collisions
  • Slope property owners can be held responsible if the grounds aren’t kept clean of rocks
  • Slope property owners can be held liable if off-limits areas aren’t clearly marked

In these situations, the contributing party may be asked to help pay for medical costs and lost wages associated with the injury and subsequent recovery.
