Skier-To-Skier Accidents Can Be Some Of The Most Dangerous
Many people who live and visit Colorado love to enjoy the fresh mountain air and gorgeous scenery through the sport of skiing. The ski resorts and snowy conditions present most of the year make the state one of the top destinations for skiing in the United States. Unfortunately, not everyone on the slopes is cautious and aware of others, and skiing accidents are common.
An accident on the slopes can result in everything from minor cuts and bruises to significant and life-altering injuries initiating a ski injury lawsuit. Since Rietz Law Firm‘s founding in 2000, our experienced Summit County ski accident lawyers have assisted parties to ski collision lawsuits in understanding their legal options and resolving cases involving skier-to-skier accidents.
