Skiing & Snowboarding Accidents

When a skier or snowboarder is injured in an accident, it doesn't always follow that someone else will be held liable. But in some cases, the ski resort itself or another person on the slopes may bear some legal responsibility for causing or contributing to the accident. In this section, we'll discuss some key legal issues in cases like these, including the all-important "assumption of the risk" argument that you can expect a defendant to raise when faced with a personal injury claim.
