Winter sports activities, such as skiing, snowboarding, ice skating, sledding and ice hockey, can be a lot of fun. These activities can also result in accidents that cause significant personal injuries. In some winter sports accidents, the person injured may have a claim for financial compensation. If you have sustained injuries during a winter sports activity, contact a Montana personal injury lawyer to learn what options may be available. 

Who is at fault in a winter sports related accident? 

Determining fault is an important consideration in whether you have a personal injury claim. In general, the owner of property has a duty to take reasonable care to prevent hazards and to remedy known hazards. If it can be shown that the property owner failed to use reasonable care, then they may be liable for injuries that result from the hazard. 

For example, if a ski resort failed to use reasonable care to remove an obstruction on a ski run, then it could be liable if a person is injured by that obstruction. 

Also, if the injury resulted from another person’s negligent conduct, then that person may be liable for the injuries they cause other.
