Residents of Maryland often flock to Wisp Resort year-round, though especially in the winter months. If you enjoy skiing or snowboarding, there is a good chance you’ve made a trip already this year.

Please continue reading and reach out to our experienced Maryland premises liability attorneys to learn more about what we can do for you. Here are some of the questions you may have regarding the legal process going forward:
How do most ski resort accidents happen?
Ski resort accidents happen for various reasons, though they most frequently occur as a result of negligence. Some common examples of ski resort negligence can include the failure to remove snow and ice from sidewalks, stairwells, and parking lots, failing to ensure the ski slope is free from safety hazards, negligent advice or lessons provided by a ski resort employee, and more.
What are the most common injuries sustained while skiing?
Individuals are known to have become seriously injured in skiing accidents, even sometimes receiving serious head or spinal damage, affecting them for the rest of their lives. In other cases, more minor accidents have been reported, such as broken or sprained wrists, lower leg fractures, and ankle breaks or sprains, to name a few.
How do I sue a ski resort for my injuries?
To successfully sue a ski resort, you will have to prove that you sustained injuries due to another party’s negligence. Unfortunately, this is not always easy, which is why you will need the legal assistance of an experienced attorney. Our firm will use valuable evidence, such as surveillance footage of your accident, to prove that you were injured as a result of a poorly maintained ski slope, a negligently designed ski slope, or the negligence of another skier or ski resort staff.
You should note, however, that individuals in Maryland have a designed period of time in which they are allowed to sue. This timeframe is known as the statute of limitations. Since the statute of limitations in Maryland is three years, you will have three years from the date of your accident to file a lawsuit. If you wait too long, you will generally be denied your right to compensation. Do not let this happen. Our firm is here to fight for your rights.
