The boots were manufactured in Italy and imported into Boulder, Colorado. They were sold at various SCARPA dealers and outdoors stores across the country, as well as online, from August 2017 through 2019 for $700 for the original models and $800 for the RS models. To date, there have been 605 reports of boot shells cracking during usage. There have been no accidents stemming from the incidents. SCARPA recommends that all users refrain from wearing the boots. SCARPA will call known purchasers and request that they get the boots repaired.

Potential Accidents from Broken Ski Boots

Broken ski boots can be problematic for many reasons. If the shell breaks during use, you will be unable to stay on the skis and will likely only have one functioning leg for control. Skiing accidents can be extremely devastating because of the long slopes, slipperiness, excess of snow, fair amount of trees and objects off to the side, other skiers who may be in the way, structures and lifts, and more. Falls on ski slopes due to defective ski boots can result in injuries like the following:
  • Broken bones
  • Collarbone injuries
  • Neck and spinal cord injuries
  • Muscle damage
  • Nerve damage
  • Facial injuries
  • Scarring
  • Herniated discs
  • Strains
  • Sprains
  • Dislocations
  • Internal organ damages
  • Traumatic brain injuries
  • Concussions
  • Closed head injuries
  • Crushing injuries
  • Puncture wounds
  • Paraplegia
  • Quadriplegia
  • Coma
  • Death
These injuries can be permanent and long-lasting, and may affect the way you live your life forever. In the event you suffer such an injury, you should file a product liability claim with the help of our law firm.

Filing a Product Liability Lawsuit Against SCARPA

To sue SCARPA for defective ski boots, you must prove that there was an issue and that the company was negligent. Negligence can be proven in any of these three ways:
  • A design flaw caused the item to be improperly conceived, and the issue should have been discovered and addressed before any actions were taken to create it
  • A manufacturing error at the production facility made a batch of items unusable, whether by using the wrong materials, failing to connect pieces, or by not having the items properly placed in the machines
  • An error with the warning label or hazard symbols on the item or the packaging of the item, which could be wrong or absent altogether
The boots were likely made with the wrong materials or a similar problem. If the plastic is not sufficiently made or is of a bad or cheap quality, it cannot withstand the cold and the high impacts. You should be sure to get the evidence you need to file a claim. We recommend following this procedure: Go to the doctor at once so you can get treatment for any injuries you have. The longer you wait to go to the doctor, the more likely it is that your health will suffer and your injuries will persist. You will also run the risk of your claim being outright thrown out. The insurance agent handling your case will look at the gap between the incident and the treatment and believe that you were hurt elsewhere or from another party. He will not give you the compensation you deserve. Be aware that you should also get evidence from the hospital, such as prescriptions, medical notes, receipts, treatment descriptions, release forms, and more. If there were any eyewitnesses who saw the skiing accident happen and could attest to the boot breaking, you can add their testimonies and statements to your claim. Further, you could reach out to individuals who also purchased the ski boots and request for them to join a class action lawsuit. Take as many photos as you can of the injuries you suffered, the scene of the incident, the boots and how they broke, and more. It is very important that you do not try to tamper with the boot in any way. If you try to fix it yourself, take it to a repair shop, or do anything else do it after the incident, you run the risk of losing out on your compensation. The company can claim that there is no way to determine how the defect occurred or even if one was present because of the new alterations or the tampering. Further, do not return the item to the store or collect a refund. You may have kept the purchase receipt for the boots. You could also print your bank statement to show when you bought them. It is important that you establish and prove that you are the legal and rightful owner of the boots. Once you have gathered all of this evidence, you should search for a product liability attorney to help you with your claim. You might not have the necessary legal experience, time, energy, or money to pursue a claim. We will be able to win you everything you deserve while you work on recovering from your injuries.

Statute Of Limitations To File A Product Liability Lawsuit

In California, you have 2 years from the date of the injury to file a product liability lawsuit against the liable company. If you fail to sue within that time frame, you will b3 unable to collect any compensation in the future. It is important that you adhere to this timeframe and act quickly so that your evidence is preserved and does not get lost or corrupted over time. There are a few ways in which the statue of limitations can be extended. You may have been underage at the time of the incident or you were left incapacitated. When you turn legal age or return to health, you will be able to sue. Many lawsuits are not filed because the victims fail to act in time. Contact a product liability lawyer to guarantee that you will not miss a deadline.
