Recreational and Outdoor Sports Accidents

Recreational and Outdoor Sports Accidents

Many people visit Colorado each year for our spectacular mountain views and exciting adventure tourism. Unfortunately, some of these people experience personal injuries — injuries that could have been prevented if the activity organizers used proper caution.

At Coppola & Melonakis, we hold these organizers accountable for the harm they cause. Our law firm spends a great deal of time working to understand the impact of a personal injury on the victim and his or her family.

Using extensive knowledge and experience, we help accident victims obtain monetary compensation after a recreational or outdoor sports accident.

Signing a Waiver: Does It Mean You Can’t Take Legal Action?

Many people are forced to sign a liability waiver if they wish to participate in recreational or outdoor sports in Colorado. The waiver says that the organizers have no responsibility if something bad happens. After an accident, the injury victims worry that the liability waiver prevents them from taking legal action.

If you have signed a liability waiver, you may still have legal options. At Coppola & Melonakis, we help you explore these options. Our attorneys thoroughly review all relevant facts, laws and strategies. Often, we find successful ways for our clients to recover compensation and move forward with their lives — even after signing a liability waiver.

Skiers and Skiing Accidents

Many of our clients are skiers who are injured on the slopes, often by being hit by another skier. We help injury victims hold these reckless skiers accountable for the harm they caused. This is true whether the personal injury victim lived in Colorado or was visiting to ski at one of our state’s resorts.

Our personal injury firm has the resources to work with out-of-state clients. We use the latest technology and can communicate over the phone or by e-mail when necessary. Our goal is to make things convenient for you and we find ways to make getting legal representation easier.
