While they do not immediately come to mind when people think of serious personal injuries, skiing accidents can be incredibly damaging — and complex to resolve.
It is important to realize that under Colorado law, an uphill skier is at fault when there is a collision on the slopes — he or she has a duty to steer clear of any people below. As a result, an important issue regarding liability is the question of who the uphill skier was — typically the types of injuries show how the accident took place.
Above and beyond determining liability, those injured typically have to undertake long-term healing and rehabilitative measures that can be immensely expensive. To make matters even more complex, the insurance issues are generally more nuanced and can necessitate different and more complicated treatments than other types of injuries.
