Family sues Vail Resorts after losing son in avala…  

The parents of an Eagle teenager have filed a wrongful death lawsuit against Vail Resorts after losing their son to an avalanche in January. The suit alleges the resort failed to close off a dangerous section during an avalanche warning. The teenager went into one of the areas that remained open under the impression it would be safe. He was killed in an avalanche in that section of the resort. The Colorado Avalanche Information Center issued an avalanche warning for that morning. The wrongful death suit claims Vail Resorts failed to uphold its responsibility to heed such warnings. Our condolences go out to the family in their time of loss.

Man’s family blames biking app for his death…  

An Oakland, California, man's family is suing running and bicycling app Strava after he was killed while making an attempt at breaking a speed record. The app records a user's speed and time for stretches of roads. Users can compete with one another by publicly sharing their times for the same areas. After discovering that someone bested his time for a particular route, the man departed to reclaim his title. He ran into a car while traveling at least 10 mph above the posted speed limit of 30 mph. The lawsuit alleges that the design of the app encourages people to speed, putting them in dangerous, potentially deadly situations. Strava is denying responsibility, citing the fact that it is not involved in the creation of running or biking routes. Strava claims that it removes the ones that are reported to be hazardous. Bicycle accidents are particularly dangerous because bicycles do not offer the same level of protection that cars do. If you or someone you love has been hurt in a bicycle accident, contact the bicycle accident attorneys of Hull & Zimmerman, P.C., at (303) 423-1770.

Family sues ski area after man dies in avalanche…  

The widow of a skier who was tragically killed in a January avalanche at the Winter Park ski area is suing its operator, Intrawest. The 28-year-old man, a father of two, was skiing in a designated safe area on January 22. Reports indicate that he triggered a 40-foot-wide avalanche that barreled 30 feet down the hill, burying him. Rescuers later discovered his gloved hand protruding from the snow. The lawsuit against the ski area claims that its operators should have known that the area was unsafe and restricted skiers from accessing it, or at the very least warned them of the avalanche danger. When a person is killed in a ski area, it can be difficult to determine who is at fault. Our condolences go out to this man's family.
