Ski Accidents

Houston, Texas Ski Accident Lawyers

Handling Ski Accident Cases Nationwide

Defective bindings or material used in the manufacture of skis and snowboards can result in the loss of equilibrium, stability or maneuverability, especially on short skis. Manufacturers can be held liable for injuries and fatalities that result from these defective products.

At the Law Office of Alton C. Todd, our attorneys work with product design and biomechanical engineers, stress experts and accident investigators to expose design flaws and manufacturing defects that injure our clients. With the help of medical economists and life care planners, our office also prepares cost projections for future medical needs, physical therapy, lost wages, and pain and suffering. In cases involving partial or total paralysis, we present day-in-the-life videos to demonstrate to jurors the impact of a skiing injury on our client.

If you have been seriously injured in a skiing accident when your skis or bindings failed, contact the ski accident attorneys at the Alton C. Todd law firm and schedule a free consultation to discuss your case today.

Injuries Related to Ski Accidents

The Law Firm of Alton C. Todd represents clients suffering from the following injuries related to defective skis and snowboards:

  • Compound fractures
  • Severe concussions
  • Head trauma
  • Paraplegia/quadriplegia
  • Neck and back injuries

Exposing Design and Manufacturing Flaws

Manufacturers of skis and snowboards often deny responsibility for accidents, blaming skiers for misusing equipment or for not knowing how to properly ski. In preparing for trial, our attorneys ask design engineers, sports equipment experts, medical professionals and ski instructors to discuss how design flaws or manufacturing defects played a role in our client's injuries. When clasps or bindings fail, or when the design of skis or snowboards increases the likelihood of instability, manufacturers can be held liable. When companies foresee certain dangers and do nothing to rectify them, they violate their duty of care to customers.
