A man, who suffered serious injuries in a fall from a broken chair lift in a ski resort, has filed a ski injury lawsuit claiming injury and negligence.

The lawsuit has been filed by former Delaware State Sen. Michael Katz. According to his lawsuit, the ski injury occurred nearly 3 years ago when he and his family were on a ski trip to Maine ski resort. He and his three daughters were traveling in the chairlift, when it fell.

The chair fell approximately 35 feet, and Katz suffered spinal injuries as well as traumatic brain injuries. He suffered the most serious injuries among all the people on the lift. Overall, eight people were injured in the accident at the Sugarloaf Mountain in Canada Such Valley. His young daughters also suffered back and head injuries in the accident.

The lawsuit has not come as a complete surprise to the ski resort, which has already settled or is in the process of settling claims from other people who were injured on that day. According to the lawsuit, there were several warning signs that clearly indicated that the chairlift had several safety problems. During the accident, five chairs on the lift fell completely to the ground, and the accident involved a total of 10 people. Eight were injured. There were more than 300 people on the list.

When people visit a ski resort, they expect to have fun, and build a lifetime of great memories. What they don’t expect is to be severely or injured, or suffer long-term disability because of the negligence of the resort. Many of these resorts can be quite expensive, and can charge fancy prices for you to avail of their services. The least that people expect is to be able to use the facilities at the resort safely, without danger of personal harm to them and their loved ones.
