Ski Resort Avalanche Injury Lawsuit Attorney


Ski Resort Avalanche Injury Lawsuit Attorney sue liability compensation incident

As a skier, you are responsible for many facets of your safety and that of others who share the slopes with you. It is vital that you ski on slopes and in conditions that meet your skill level to ensure that you are not risking your safety or that of others. You are also responsible for knowing when the conditions or your physical condition could increase the level of risk above an acceptable level. Take a break when tired, and never remain on the slopes in adverse weather. However, there are also aspects of your safety that are entirely in the hands of the ski resort, such as closing the runs when there is an increased potential for an avalanche.

As a skier, you might know some of the signs of a life-altering or even life-ending avalanche. However, it is up to the ski resort to carefully monitor the conditions and close slopes at risk for this severe event. If you or a loved one was recently at a California ski resort and was swept into an avalanche, please know that the team at DTLA Law Group is here to help you sort out the legal challenges and issues that will likely arise. Our staff can be contacted 24/7 to get answers to your questions and learn more about your rights as a victim of personal injuries that could be due to someone else’s negligence.

When you contact our team, they will provide as much general information as possible while scheduling a free consultation with an expert ski resort avalanche injury lawsuit attorney to discuss your case. Once they have all the facts, they will provide you with a comprehensive evaluation of the legal merit of the claim and if you have grounds for a lawsuit. Then the choice is yours. The DTLA Law Group team will never pressure you to hire our firm, pursue legal action, or make any immediate decisions about a lawsuit. Our only goal is to ensure that you have all the information and legal guidance needed to make the choice that will best meet your immediate and long-term needs.

Understanding The Time Limit To File A Ski Resort Avalanche Injury Lawsuit

As you think about the medical bills and other expenses you face due to being involved in a ski avalanche incident, you are sure to feel a bit overwhelmed. While that is expected after any significant injury incident, please know that the longer you wait to seek legal guidance about your rights, the more challenging it could become to file a claim if you choose to sue the ski resort for the harm you suffered. In addition, you should be aware that a time limit exists to file any lawsuit with the court.

The Statute of Limitations applies to all lawsuits and defines how long the victim has to get their case filed with the court. While the time provided can vary based on the legal material involved in the case, once the time limit has passed, the victim will lose the ability to file a claim for that incident. It is also vital to know that there are few exceptions to provide added time to make a claim once the Statute of Limitations has expired. So, it is always best to contact DTLA Law Group for a free consultation as quickly as possible to gather this vital information that could impact your ability to hold the ski resort responsible for the damage you incurred.

Typically, the victim of a ski resort avalanche will have two years from the date of the incident to have their case filed with the court. If the case is filed after the two years have passed, the court will likely deny the claim immediately. It is also essential to consider the time needed to gather information and prepare a case if you are thinking a lawsuit is the best resolution to meet your needs. Please reach out to DTLA Law Group today to learn more about this time factor and how to proceed if you are interested in seeking justice and compensation via lawsuit.

The Typical Warning Signs Of An Avalanche

Skiers always need to remain aware of their surroundings and changing conditions that could increase the risk of an injury or worse. While you rely on the ski resort to close areas where an avalanche is possible, you should still be aware of early warning signs to vacate an area that could be the site of an avalanche, which can include:

  • Recent reports of an avalanche in a specific area near where you are skiing
  • Cracking or collapsing snowpacks
  • Excessive rain or snow in a 24-hour period
  • Unstable snow or large slabs of snow and ice sliding down the mountain
  • A hollow sound under the hard-packed snow
  • High wind that is blowing a large amount of snow
  • A sudden or significant warming of temperatures during the daylight hours

When you notice these conditions it is wise for you to leave the area and consult the safety team at the resort for additional information about a possible avalanche in the area.

Understanding Duty Of Care

All property owners are required to follow basic safety guidelines defined by duty of care. These rules are part of premises liability law and apply to all private and public spaces, which include these ski resorts:

  • Bear Mountain
  • Bear Valley
  • Boreal Mountain Resort
  • Dodge Ridge
  • Donner Ski Ranch
  • Heavenly
  • Homewood Mountain Resort
  • June Mountain
  • Kirkwood
  • Mammoth Mountain
  • Mountain High
  • Mt. Baldy
  • Mt. Shasta Ski Park
  • Northstar California
  • Palisades Tahoe
  • Sierra-at-Tahoe
  • Ski China Peak
  • Snow Summit
  • Snow Valley
  • Soda Springs
  • Sugar Bowl Resort
  • Tahoe Donner

Unlike in a shopping mall or a restaurant, the obligation of a ski resort is more detailed with regard to the safety of skiers on their slopes. One of the most vital responsibilities is monitoring the weather and mountain conditions to alert skiers if there is an increased potential for an avalanche. If the resort staff is not dedicated to monitoring the conditions and closing ski runs in areas with an increased safety hazard, they can be considered to be negligent in their duty of care. Furthermore, if that negligence is later found to have caused or contributed to the injuries of skiers involved in an avalanche, the resort could be liable for the injuries and losses of the victim.

Please reach out to DTLA Law Group to discuss your case with a California ski resort avalanche injury lawsuit attorney at your earliest convenience. Our team brings decades of expertise and experience to each case to ensure we secure the full and fair compensation our clients deserve after suffering the injuries and trauma of an avalanche.
