People all over Pennsylvania enjoy visiting our many wonderful ski resorts for a few days, or weeks, of winter fun. However, for a day to truly be fun, it must also be relatively safe and accident-free. Unfortunately, these ski resorts do not always take all necessary safety precautions, and if you have been wrongly injured in a ski resort accident, you most likely now require financial compensation to help you through the healing process. Please read on and speak with our experienced Pennsylvania premises liability lawsuit attorneys to learn more about how we can help. Here are some of the questions you may have:
What are the most common causes of skiing accidents?
Skiing accidents can be caused by various factors, though unfortunately, we can confirm that they are most frequently caused by negligence. Some of the most common types of ski resort negligence can include failing to ensure harmful debris on the ski slope is always cleared away, neglecting to provide beginners with sound advice and lessons, renting out defective skiing equipment to skiers, failing to clear away all snow and ice from areas outside of the slope, such as stairs, parking lots, and sidewalks.
What injuries are most common in skiing accidents?
There are various potential injuries one can sustain in a skiing accident, however, the most common injuries include concussions or brain damage, spinal injuries, broken bones, and ankle or wrist sprains, to name a few.
How do I know if I am eligible for compensation after an accident?
As with any other personal injury lawsuit, to win compensation, you will have to prove that you were injured as a direct result of another party’s negligence. Unfortunately, this is not always easy, which is why if you have been injured, you must retain the services of an experienced personal injury attorney who is capable of recovering evidence that proves you were injured due to either a negligently maintained or designed ski slope, a negligent ski resort staff, or even a negligent skier or snowboarder.
While our firm can help you tremendously, you must speak with us in a timely manner. The statute of limitations for personal injury claims in Pennsylvania states that the wrongly injured have two years from the date of their accident to take legal action against a negligent party. If you wait past the two-year mark, you will most likely be denied the financial compensation you deserve. The sooner you bring your claim to our attention, the better.
