Skiing and Ski Lift Accidents:
Roger Kohn and David Rath are long-time, avid skiers. David Rath previously worked in the ski industry. We have a good understanding of the duties of skiers and ski resorts, and can use this expertise to the advantage of our clients who are injured while skiing or riding a lift.
We know how to deal with the insurance companies that insure ski resorts. Moreover, it may not be common knowledge, but homeowner’s insurance policies usually cover skiers or snowboarders who hit other skiers or snowboarders, and we know how to deal with these insurance carriers on behalf of clients who have been hit. It is often possible to negotiate a very favorable settlement for our clients without the necessity of a trial. In those cases in which settlement is not possible, we aggressively seek maximum compensation for our clients, consulting closely with clients as to their preferences as to how they wish to proceed.
If you are unsure as to whether you have a worthwhile case, please give us a call at 802-482-2905. There is never any charge for considering a case.
