Deer Valley Resort is consistently ranked one of the top three resorts in North America. The economy of Utah, and especially Park City, relies heavily on the tourism attracted by this beautiful resort and others in the area. Attracting tourists is so important that the state has enacted the Utah ski law that protects resorts from lawsuits for injuries resulting from the inherent risks of skiing. This law can make it difficult to obtain financial compensation following a skiing or snowboarding accident.
We recommend that you consult with a Utah personal injury attorney at Summit Injury Law if you have suffered a ski or snowboard accident at Deer Valley Resort. We can evaluate your circumstances and recommend your best options for moving forward, all at no cost to you.
Injuries are often the result of beginners getting over adventurous or not heeding the proper warnings and signs. Certainly no one would expect a resort to compensate someone for injuries sustained due to the skier or snowboarder’s own negligence.
When a beginner puts his or her trust in an instructor, however, and that skiing instructor’s negligence results in injuries, the ski resort can be held liable. The same holds true for improperly maintained grounds that result in injury or ski lift accidents resulting from negligent operators or poorly maintained equipment.
If resort negligence has caused serious injuries to you or a loved one, we will evaluate your case and determine if a lawsuit is the correct action. If it is, we will fight diligently for your rights and pursue financial compensation for your injuries, pain and suffering, lost wages from missing work or wrongful death in the tragic event that someone died. Lawyer David S. Kottler is experienced in dealing with these cases and has been practicing law for more than two decades.
