Ski accidents can have potentially devastating and even life-long consequences.

Notable Ski Accident Cases

We have a history of success in ski accident cases. We supported Doran Laybourn through his accident, recovery, and lawsuit. Laybourn suffered 17 fractures in his tibia, plus a broken fibula, cheek bones, nose, and teeth. The wreck hospitalized him for nearly two weeks, and became the subject of a documentary film by Snowboard Magazine.

We also represented the family of Hoot Brown, a skier who was crushed by a SnoCat groomer at the Telluride Ski Resort. No criminal charges were ever filed for the negligence, but we were successful in our civil suit not only for compensation, but also upgraded safety, the renaming of the terrain park “Hoot’s Hood” and an iconic statue of our client at the top of the mountain.

We also represented Jake White in a skier-to-skier collision case. We were able to recover more than $250,000 for our client.
