Ski Accidents

Just like in a car accident case, if another skier or snowboarder acts negligently or recklessly and injures you, you are entitled to damages.  Your damages may include the reasonable value of your medical bills, your lost earnings and lost earning capacity, and pain and suffering associated with the accident.  Ski Accidents in Colorado are governed by the Ski Safety Act which requires the uphill skier to yield to skiers below, skiers merging on to a trail must yield to those already on the trail, and all skiers are required to ski within their ability and ski in a manner that will not cause or contribute to the injury of another skier.  The Ski Safety Act protects Ski Resorts from hazards that are inherent to skiing.  Many skiers and snowboarders have homeowners, renters or travel insurance that will cover them for their negligence.  If another skier is at fault for your injuries, we can help you find their insurance and make a claim.  To see whether you might have a claim for an accident while skiing or snowboarding, call us or click on the contact us button below for a free consultation.


In all matters involving personal injury it is essential that measures be taken promptly to preserve evidence, investigate the accident in question, and file a lawsuit prior to the deadline imposed by the Statute of Limitations. If you or a loved one is a victim of personal injuries, call Sloat, Nicholson & Hoover, P.C. now at 800-873-3202 or submit a simple Case Review Form. The initial consultation is free of charge, and if we agree to accept your case, we will work on a Contingent Fee basis, which means we get paid for our services only if there is a monetary award or recovery of funds. Don’t delay! You may have a valid claim and be entitled to compensation for your injuries, but a lawsuit must be filed before the statute of limitations expires.

The above is not legal advice. That can only come from a qualified attorney who is familiar with all the facts and circumstances of a particular, specific case and the relevant law.
