Though New Jerseyans have the pleasure of enjoying several wonderful ski resorts, including Mountain Ridge, the truth is, these places are not always safe, aside from the inherent dangers that come along with gliding down hills at high speeds. Unfortunately, there are times where ski resorts do not provide patrons with a safe skiing environment, and when this happens, accidents are sure to happen. If you have been injured in a ski resort accident, you must continue reading and reach out to our experienced New Jersey personal injury attorneys as soon as possible.
How do ski resort accidents happen?
Ski resort accidents happen for several reasons, though not unlike all other accidents, the most common cause is negligence. For example, careless skiers colliding with other skiers, poorly maintained or designed ski slopes, negligent ski instructors, defective ski equipment provided by ski resorts, and snow and ice hazards in resort walkways, steps, and parking lots all contribute to slip and fall ski resort accidents.
What should I do after getting injured in a serious ski resort accident?
If you have been injured in an accident, the most important thing is your health, which is why you should call the police immediately. They will send an ambulance, which will take you to a hospital where your injuries can be treated. From here, if you are capable of doing so, you should ask anyone who saw the accident for their name and phone number, email, or any other means by which you can reach them so they can verify your claim. Next, once your injuries have been treated, you must reach out to an experienced attorney who knows the ins and outs of the claims process, who will work to uncover various types of evidence to prove that you were injured as a direct result of another party’s negligence. Upon proving negligence in a premises liability lawsuit, you will receive the financial compensation you need.
You should understand, however, that in New Jersey, the statute of limitations states that people have only two years from the date of their accident to file a lawsuit against a negligent party, so you must act fast. The sooner you contact our firm, the better.
