Who is Responsible in Your Ski Accident?
Were you recently involved in a ski accident, ski collision, or ski resort negligence TCB Law has been representing injured skiers for over fourteen years. If you have been personally injured while skiing call Attorney Thomas Bixby today. According to the National Ski Areas Association, the 2009/2010 ski season was an average year for fatalities and serious injuries. Out of 59.8 million skiers and snowboarders, there were:
- 38 fatalities
- 25 skiers (18 male, 7 female)
- 13 snowboaders (12 male, 1 female)
- 39 serious injuries
- 16 skiers (11 male, 5 female)
- 23 snowboarders (16 male, 7 female)
These are only the reported injuries; many ski injuries go unreported. How should you know who is at fault for your ski injury? Ski resort negligence is often dismissed due to the false belief that skiers assume all risk. In fact, ski resorts are charged with the duty of any other property owner – proper inspection, safe-keeping, and protectection of its customers from known or foreseen hazards. At TCB Law we have litigated ski injury cases to successful outcomes for our clients. In Vermont the statute of limitations is one year on ski injuries.
