One of the greatest benefits of living in Colorado is that you get to enjoy over 200 sunny days per year, but can also head into the mountains to partake in a wondrous day of skiing or snowboarding. In fact, our attorney, Christopher W. Jeffress of Jeffress Law, is an avid snowboarder that loves getting to head up to enjoy the mountain resorts. Mr. Jeffress also understands that, while on the slopes, you are vulnerable to the inexperience and disregard of others.
While being on the slopes can be a peaceful and wonderful experience, it can also result in horrible injuries if you are involved in a collision with someone that is skiing or snowboarding negligently. When you suffer a personal injury because of a skiing or snowboarding accident, you need to contact an attorney that has local experience with these types of cases. Contact Jeffress Law today so our attorney can help you seek financial restitution for your suffering and injuries. Call us at (303) 732-6634.
Types of Skiing and Snowboarding Accidents
Skiing and snowboarding are sports and, just like any other sport, there are inherent risks involved with partaking in them. While you assume some of these risks when you purchase your lift tickets or season pass, that doesn't mean that you are accepting that negligence by another should occur and cause injury. Skiing/snowboarding accidents that occur from negligence are often due to any of the following:
- Another skier/snowboarder is going too fast and causes a collision because of their speed
- Skier/snowboarder is on an advanced run when they aren't ready for its difficulty, thereby becoming a hazard and liability to everyone on that run
- A skier or snowboarder isn't paying attention and slams into a skier/snowboarder that is stopped on the hill
- Skier/snowboarder doesn't know who has the right-of-way on a slope and collides while merging
- Skier/snowboarder pushes someone off of a lift
- Skier/snowboarder causes someone to fall off of a lift

Whatever the cause of your skiing/snowboarding accident, our attorney understands that your injury may affect every aspect of your life. Mr. Jeffress will invest his time to get to know you and your family in order to understand how your injury is affecting your life physically, emotionally, financially, and professionally.
