Negligence While Skiing
Or Snowboarding

Skiing and snowboarding can be two of the most enjoyable outdoor activities in which one car participate in the state of Utah. However, this fun sport can turn deadly at a moment’s notice if an accident occurs. Many ski and snowboarding accidents are caused by negligence. Negligence occurs when someone fails to exercise proper care and consideration and this leads to a potentially dangerous situation. There are numerous ways in which negligence can lead to a ski or snowboarding injury.

If you have been injured in a skiing or snowboarding accident that you believe to be the result of negligence, contact a Utah personal injury attorney as soon as possible. Even if you are unsure who or what was to blame for your accident, you want an attorney on your side as you seek compensation for your injuries.

Some of the most common acts of negligence that can lead to an accident include the following:

  • Ski lift negligence: If the ski lift was not properly maintained by the ski staff, this can cause the ski lift mechanism to malfunction and cause serious injuries.
  • Ski area negligence: Failure to properly mark hazards, groom the grounds, or take proper measures to secure against avalanches, are all examples of ski area negligence that can lead to an injury.
  • Ski instructor negligence: When a ski instructor does not exercise proper caution and care with his or her students, a serious injury can occur.
