Pennsylvania is home to various treasured ski resorts, including the Seven Springs Mountain Resort, the state’s largest ski and four-season resort. Unfortunately, though these resorts generally make for a great weekend away, there are times where they are improperly maintained, designed, or staffed, which can cause an accident. If you have been injured in a ski resort accident, you should read on and reach out to our experienced Pennsylvania personal injury attorneys to learn more about how we can help.
How do ski resort accidents happen?
Ski resorts can happen for a multitude of reasons, though negligence is among the most common root cause. Some of the most prominent examples of ski resort negligent can include sli[ and falls due to failure to remove snow from parking lots, sidewalks, and other parts of the premises that are not meant to have snow, defective chair lifts, staff giving beginners incorrect or careless advice, and more. Skiing accidents can cause very serious injuries, including brain damage, spinal injuries, broken bones, and sprained wrists and ankles, to name a few.
How can I sue a Pennsylvania ski resort for my injuries?
To win compensation in a lawsuit against a ski resort, you will have to prove that you were injured due to another party’s negligence. In this case, you may either sue a negligent skier, a negligent ski resort staff, or even a negligent ski resort maintenance crew. As long as you hire an attorney who is experienced in satisfying the burden of proof in premises liability cases, you stand a very strong chance in proving your claim. Our firm seeks out various forms of valuable evidence that we can use to prove your claim, including pictures of surveillance footage of the accident and its aftermath, police reports of the incident, medical documents, witness testimony, and more.
Additionally, it is worth noting that individuals looking to file a lawsuit have a certain amount of time to do so in Pennsylvania. The statute of limitations for personal injury claims in Pennsylvania is two years, which means you have two years from the date of your accident to file a lawsuit. If you wait too long, you will generally be barred from suing. We are here to help you recover the financial compensation you need to get back on your feet again.
