Filing a Ski Accident Claim in Denver

The state of Colorado boasts an impressive 26 ski resorts that service millions of local, national and international skiers and snowboarders every year. Colorado’s ski industry has flourished over the past three decades and skier visits have increased to more than 12 million every year. Because of the widespread popularity of the sport, the Colorado Ski Safety Act was created to dictate the rules that a skier must follow to ensure his or her own safety as well as the safety of others. The Act also outlines the responsibilities of a ski resort to maintain lifts, trails, and slopes to ensure a safe environment.

Even with these laws and guidelines in place, accidents still occur on the ski slopes of Colorado. If you or someone you love has suffered injury because of negligence on the part of the ski resort or another skier or snowboarder, you may be able to seek compensation with the help of a talented Denver personal injury lawyer.

Have you sustained injuries after a slip or fall at work or in a public place?

Most of us go about our daily business without much thought to the dangers of slipping or falling due to a dangerous condition. We run errands, shop at retail outlets and go through our routines at the workplace, sometimes standing at risk due to the negligence action or inaction of a proprietor or employer. Hazardous conditions should not be allowed to remain intact as they can lead to serious and permanent injuries. If you have been a victim of a slip or fall and have sustained injuries, you should contact a Denver personal injury lawyer immediately for answers to your questions and an examination of your case.

A slip or fall and subsequent injury can occur due to various dangerous situations such as weather-related conditions (rain, snow or ice), standing water, slippery substances, poor lighting, uneven flooring, or other hidden hazard. If proper warning signs or action to remove the danger is not taken by your employer, building owner or store proprietor, they may be responsible for injuries you sustain in a slip or fall. Serious injuries to the back, neck or spinal cord can lead to permanently debilitating conditions and health problems. Even minor injuries like sprains, abrasions or fractures can run up massive medical bills that you should not be responsible for.
