    nastiest crash ive ever had...


    Why are you out of work so long? Did you have surgery? I have seperated my shoulder and been back to work the next day just with pain. I assume the doc told ya to stay away from work?

    I also assume you work with your hands then as well.

    nastiest crash ive ever had...

    It seems to me that, in spite of all the other arguments, Cannon was negligent. And there isn't any immunity from negligence. Operators need to moniter their snow makers to protect skiiers from Wet Guns. Same thing if a lift fails because of poor maintenance...

    My opinion...not to be confused with fact...

    Re: nastiest crash ive ever had...

    so for the past 5 or so weeks ive been in contact with their insurance guy (who just happens to be right up the street) and after a bunch of lollygagging and dragging this out he called me today to tell me that he is authorized to offer me an amount of $2500....no im not missing a zero. talk about adding insult to injury.

    now im not looking to get rich but these are the bills/costs that ive added up.
    doctor/hospital billed: $4819.25+ (this doest include PT, and my doctor bills are difficult to read)
    doctor/hospital out of pocket: $2k ish
    lost wages:approx $3740 (not including tips from job #2)
    broken skis: $450
    parents: $1000 (since i wasnt working i needed some help)
    that puts me in the hole $10k+

    i have med ins so [I]most[I] of my med bills are covered but with a 3rd party payment/reimbursement they are gonna want at least 2/3 of their money back. so while the initial payment of $2500 would buy skis and pay the deductible for my ins. that leaves me with nothing. and if the ins. co. finds out i got any sort of settlement then they may come looking for their $$.
    its a slap in the face

    with those numbers that ive calculated..i wouldve been happy with $12-15k. that wouldve paid bills, reimbursed me for lost pay, bought skis, and given me a little change in my pocket for pain & suffering. is that too much to ask?
    but if i have to get a lawyer involved now i have to pay him..which means ill be asking for more $$ to offset that cost.

    aggravating.

    Just be sure you have a case before going the lawyer route, if you took them to court and lost you'd end up deeper in the time/money hole...

    NH has pretty specific laws regarding ski area injury:

    CHAPTER 225-A SKIERS, SKI AREA AND PASSENGER TRAMWAY SAFETY

    specific is right. nothing specific in there regarding negligence
    a lawyer has told me that i have a case.
    the way i see it..if i didnt have case they wouldnt even be talking to me let alone offering me $$$. had i skied into a tree do you think it would have gotten this far? no. they wouldve said take a hike pal.
    i spent an afternoon reading the RSAs regarding ski area immunity, and i found nothing that says they are immune from negligence

    if the govt gives them that type of immunity then where is the motivation to put forth any sort of effort to be "safe". why close trails? why put up signs? why groom? why bother? they have immunity. and with that immunity there is no incentive to try to ensure the safety of its visitors. i realize you cant protect everyone from everything, but someone fucked up..its that simple. its not a big deal, just take responsibility for your actions, or lack thereof.

    Re: nastiest crash ive ever had...

    I think you're doing the right thing to talk to the lawyers. They'll let you know whether or not you have a case that gets both of you paid enough to make it worth your time (2/3rds for you, 1/3rd for them). On your side you have negligence, on the mountain's side they'll probably try to prove you were skiing above your means (a 40 yard slide after a snow gun may indicate a substantial misjudgment of speed and the conditions on your part) but they might not have as much information as you shared here. Good luck and get well soon!

    You should pull the docket for that case online and read it in it's entirety. The case goes a lot deeper than a disagreement over a burn from hot coffee. It speaks to negligence and greed on the case of the corporation as well as gives the financial reasoning for the settlement. It's an in interesting read.

    I have only been skiing a few times, but if i went skiing and saw a sign that said "snow making in progress" i wouldnt know that meant that you may be severely injured. I dont see how that can cover them for liability.

    they werent making snow....they were making puddles
    if the sign said puddle making in progress then i may have avoided it.
