What are common skier injuries?
Given how many ways you could hurt yourself while skiing or snowboarding, it is no surprise that injuries can range from mild to severe. Sometimes injuries that look modest turn out to be life-changing, such as with spinal injuries.
Mild injuries include sprains, bruises, fractures, and dislocations. Depending on the cost of treatment of your mild injury, it might not be worth it to sue the person who caused it. However, with severe injuries like brain injuries or spinal injuries, you should seek compensation.

How a spinal cord injury can change your life
A severe winter sports injury like an injury to your spinal cord can have a major impact on the rest of your life. Spinal cord injuries are often caused by a sudden impact that crushes, compresses, fractures, or dislocates one or more vertebrae. Such injuries can cause permanent changes to bodily functions, such as sensation and strength, below the injury site; where the injury occurs on the spine determines which body parts will be affected.
If you received this kind of injury after a skiing collision, you should strongly consider legal action. The symptoms of the injury can be much too serious and expensive for a victim to bear without compensation from the person who caused the injury. Those symptoms may include:
- Inability to feel heat or cold
- Inability to feel touch
- Inability to control bladder or bowels
- Nerve pain
- Changes to fertility or sexual sensitivity
- Difficulty coughing and/or breathing
- Difficulty walking
- Extreme back pain
- Paralysis affecting your trunk, arms, hands, legs, and pelvic organs (quadriplegia)
