Colorado Ski Accident Attorneys
Due to the Colorado Ski Safety Act, the types of skiing accidents or snowboarding accidents that are recoverable have been significantly narrowed. Essentially, any skiing or snowboarding accident that is a result of the inherent dangers of skiing is not actionable. Every case is different, and requires the skilled analysis of an experienced Denver skiing accident attorney.

Giometti & Associates, P.C., our attorneys have nearly three decades of experience in representing individuals, families and companies in accident cases of all types, including skiing accidents. Whether a skiing or snowboarding accident has merit can only be determined by a knowledgeable attorney. We provide exceptional and efficient legal representation at reasonable costs.

Recoverable Snowboarding or Skiing Accidents
In general, there are only a few types of snowboarding or skiing accidents in Colorado in which injured parties can seek compensation. The first is a collision or accident between skiers or snowboarders. A collision has to have been the result of negligence or recklessness between a skier or snowboarder. The second is a defective/faulty ski-lift operation. This can be due to the negligence of a ski-lift operator or skiing resort employee. Accidents that occur due to the design of a ski resort are not actionable because they are viewed as being inherent to the danger of skiing. A skier or snowboarder assumes the risk of skiing and therefore cannot sue because of this.

Skiing and snowboarding injuries can be catastrophic. They can result in serious back or spinal cord injuries, permanent paralysis, disability and head or brain trauma. Our firm can represent you in a personal injury or wrongful death case due to any of these catastrophic ski injuries.
