Filing an Insurance Claim After a Ski Accident
When you initially invest in health insurance and accident coverage, you expect the insurance company you’re working with to honor the protection you pay for. As such, you have the right to file a claim for financial support in the event of an accident that your provider covers. In the wake of a ski accident, you should work with an insurance adjuster to file a claim.
That said, you can’t always expect a ski accident claim to move forward. Many providers may attempt to deny your ski accident claim by saying that your policy doesn’t cover ski accidents and your post-accident care. Other providers may offer you insufficient settlements.
If your insurance provider doesn’t honor the coverage you’ve spent hundreds of dollars on, let a Fort Worth, TX, ski accident lawyer know. Our team can investigate your denied claim and either appeal that denial or take your insurance provider to civil court.

Texas Courts Classify Ski Accidents as Personal Injury Claims
There’s more than one way for you to fight for accident compensation after a crash on the slopes. After you file an insurance claim, consider working with an attorney to take the party liable for your accident to civil court. You can file a personal injury claim with Fort Worth’s civil judges in an effort to secure accident-related damages.
If you want to file a personal injury claim with Texas’s civil courts, you need to determine what party you want to hold liable for your accident. You should also calculate the value of your accident-related losses. You can refer back to the total sum of all of your losses when demanding financial support from a liable party.
Note, though, that if you want to move a ski accident case forward in civil court, you need to do so within the statute of limitations Texas sets for its personal injury cases. Texas Civil Practice & Remedies Code section 16.003 lets ski accident survivors like you take up to two years, but no longer, to investigate their accidents and submit their claims to a civil judge.

Assigning Liability for Your Ski Accident
Your right to hold certain parties liable for a ski accident hinges on your ability to prove that those parties’ negligence contributed to your losses. The best way to assign liability for a ski accident is to bring forward evidence of that party’s misconduct.
That said, the nature of liability in a ski accident can get muddled by contracts and multiple instances of negligence on the slopes. After an investigation into your losses, you may find that you have the right to hold any of the following parties accountable for your accident:
Ski resorts often try to protect themselves from assertions of liability after ski accidents. Many resorts require you to sign waivers before you hit the slopes or post signs around their property, decrying their responsibility for your well-being. Do these waivers and signs relieve the resort of their duty of care to you? More often than not, no.
With that in mind, if you get into an accident due to a resort’s poor slope care, inappropriate product management, or ineffective team management, you can take up a lawsuit against that institution. The ski accident lawyers in Fort Worth can conduct an investigation into your losses and challenge the resort’s attempt to foist responsibility for your recovery onto someone else.
Product Liability Cases
Did the straps connecting your ski boots to your skis break while you were on the slopes? Did your poles dangerously malfunction? Did your helmet fail to protect you from a fall? All of these circumstances and those like them may entitle you to a product liability case based on your recent ski accident.
You can work with an attorney to bring forward evidence of similar failures from products released by the same manufacturer that created your faulty product.
If there’s a precedent for product failures from the named company, or if there’s evidence that the company released the failed product without proper testing, you can demand compensation for your losses.
