Ski Accident Lawyer in Vancouver

Serious ski accidents can occur as a result of defective chairlifts or dangerous and improperly positioned ski racks.

At issue is always the question as to whether the waiver on the lift ticket releases the ski hill from liability. However, it is difficult for the ski hill to absolve itself of liability for negligent construction and design of chairlifts and ski racks.

The efforts of Mr. Gertsoyg in the conduct of his past ski accident cases have resulted in safety improvements at the Blackcomb and Cypress Mountains.
