Utah is known for its beautiful mountains and the Greatest Snow on Earth. If you have been injured in a skiing accident, snowboarding accident, or in an incident at a ski resort, you need to know your rights. Unfortunately with larger numbers of skiers and snowboarders hitting the slopes in Utah every year, larger numbers of injuries, and even deaths, occur at Salt Lake City resorts and other Utah area mountain resorts each season.
Injuries while skiing can be caused by a number of different factors including ski lift failures, employee and lift operator errors, poor ski slope maintenance, obstructions and obstacles, poorly trained ski instructors, collisions with reckless and out of control skiers or boarders, collisions with snow-cats or snowmobiles, machinery and other mountain equipment, and many other forms of potential skiing related negligence.
If you are from another state, or even another country, and you are injured at a Utah Ski Resort, your case will almost always need to be litigated by an attorney who is licensed in Utah. The experienced Ski Lawyers at Handy and Handy are mountain enthusiasts themselves. They know the ski areas, and ski law, and they are ready to help you with your Utah Ski Injury claim.
We can help represent people in cases against ski resorts that have committed certain types of negligent or intentional acts, in cases against other skiers, boarders, or individuals who acted negligently or recklessly, and in cases against the manufacturers and/or operators of dangerous mountain equipment including snowmobiles, snow-cats, and machinery if that equipment was defective, dangerous, or operated incorrectly.
If you or your loved one was injured in a winter sports related accident call the Ski and Snowboard Lawyers of Handy and Handy at 801-264-6677 today to discuss your possible claim.
