Negligent Resort Owners Must Be Held Accountable For Skiing And Snowboarding Accidents
While risky, skiing and snowboarding are popular pastimes. Enthusiasts look forward to taking to their local slopes. From the bindings on their skis to the conditions of the hills, they assume that the resort owner has attended to everything and made the property reasonably safe. Sadly, that is not always the case. Many skiers and snowboarders have suffered catastrophic and life-changing injuries when safety was not a top priority.
At Abramson Smith Waldsmith LLP, our attorneys have worked for over 30 years to hold negligent parties accountable.
Gross negligence may trump the release of liability that a resort owner made you sign. We represent clients in the San Francisco Bay Area and throughout Northern California.
Unforeseen Dangers Can Lead To Serious Injuries
Defective bindings cause a skier to lose control while flying down a hill. Chairlifts and gondolas can malfunction, causing a fall from great heights. The terrain of a slope may not be clear or warning signs may be lacking, creating danger for a skier or snowboarder. Yes, you may have signed a release waiving the resort owner of responsibility, but there are times when unforeseen danger causes the most serious and deadly injuries.
Getting To The Facts Of An Injury-Causing Collision
At Abramson Smith Waldsmith LLP, we don’t assume that the resort owners drafted a well-written release. Yes, there are risks and reckless skiers and snowboarders. However, that does not excuse negligence by a company that owns ski hills or manufactures skiing and snowboarding products.
