Parker Lipman is home to experienced ski accident attorneys, both on the slopes and in the courtroom. Ski resorts and insurance companies know us, and they know that we understand their industry and the law.
Two of our lawyers, Chris Koupal and Dan Lipman, are the co-founders and co-chairs of the national AAJ Ski Area Litigation Group.
Ski cases can be complicated. Who pays for my medical bills? Does the skier or snowboarder who hit me have insurance? How do you determine who is at fault? Does the ski resort maintain any records or documentation of my accident? As avid skiers ourselves (since we were kids), we are well-versed in these cases.
Whether your injury was the result of an out-of-control skier or snowboarder, a chairlift malfunction, or ski area operator error, we have the expertise to pursue the unique aspects of your injury and evaluate the economic impact it has had on you. You have our attention.
