When you sign up and pay for ski or snowboarding lessons, you expect an instructor who will not only teach you the basics of what you signed up to learn, but will also teach basic safety precautions as well. Skiing and snowboarding can be extremely dangerous sports, with people traveling at high speeds down steep slopes, and if your ski instructor is not ever vigilant with his or her students, a devastating and sometimes even fatal accident can occur.
If you or a loved one has been injured as a result of ski instructor negligence, contact a Utah personal injury attorney from Summit Injury Law immediately. You may be able to seek compensation for the damages that were incurred as a result of the negligence.
Ski instructor negligence can cover many different types of instructor error. Most commonly, ski instructor negligence occurs when a ski instructor leads his or her student or class into an area that is not safe for them. This can be an area where other, more advanced skiers or snowboarders are present, traveling at high speeds down steep slopes.
Alternatively, another type of negligence is when an instructor leads his or her students to an area that is too advanced for their skiing or snowboarding technique, thereby endangering the by encouraging them to attempt something that is above their level. Both of these can lead to devastating injuries, and even death.
You may not realize that if you or a loved one is injured in a skiing or snowboarding accident due to the negligence of your ski instructor that you are entitled to seek monetary compensation from them to cover the cost of your medical bills, including any surgeries, physical therapy and chiropractor appointments that were required as a result of the injury.
