    Common Causes of Mt. Pocono Personal Injury Claims

    Many families and friends visit Mount Pocono to engage in activities like skiing, snowboarding, and other snow-related attractions. Unfortunately, visitors could have to cut their vacation short because they sustained a severe injury during one of these activities. The following is a list of common causes of injuries that may occur on vacation to Mount Pocono.

    Skiing Accidents

    Skiing is an activity that requires a skier to be extremely cautious when traveling down a ski slope. However, even a skier that exercises caution could still be seriously injured in an accident. For example, if a skier collides with another skier that has lost control, the skier could suffer a broken bone or other types of injury.

    A ski accident may also occur if the owner of a ski resort fails to maintain their property. For example, if a ski resort fails to remove rocks and other obstructions from the slopes, a skier could trip and sustain a bone fracture and other serious injuries. Additionally, if a ski instructor working for a resort placed you in a precarious position, the resort could be held vicariously liable for their actions.

    Chair Lift Accidents

    A chair lift is used to transport skiers and snowboarders to the top of a slope. However, a chair lift mechanism also presents a high level of risk for passengers. If a resort fails to perform frequent maintenance on a chair lift, the lift could be unsafe to use. For example, if a safety bar on a chair lift is loose, a passenger could fall from a great height and suffer a bone fracture.

    Equipment Malfunction

    A skier or snowboarder will need various types of equipment to keep themselves safe while performing an activity. Unfortunately, if an equipment malfunction occurs, a person could be seriously injured. For example, if a ski breaks when a person is traveling down a slope, this may result in a severe accident.

    If your ski equipment malfunctioned and caused you to suffer a serious injury, you may have a valid claim against the manufacturer of the equipment.

    Hotel or Airbnb Accidents

    When visiting Mount Pocono, many travelers will have to book a stay at a local hotel or Airbnb. If an owner of a hotel or Airbnb does not adequately maintain their property, a visitor could be injured. For example, failure to place a wet floor sign after mopping an area could lead to a slip and fall accident.

    If you were injured under any of the above circumstances or other circumstances, our firm could help you seek the compensation you deserve. To learn more about pursuing a personal injury lawsuit after an accident on Mount Pocono, you should continue reading and speak with an experienced Mount Pocono personal injury attorney.

    Proving Negligence in a Personal Injury Lawsuit

    Personal injury claims typically require a plaintiff to prove how a defendant acted negligently. There are four elements that a plaintiff must show in order to prove negligence:

    1. The defendant owed the plaintiff a duty of care
    2. The defendant breached their duty of care (e.g., failed to maintain snow slope)
    3. The plaintiff suffered an injury or other losses due to the defendant’s breach
    4. The plaintiff sustained an injury or other losses that are compensable by a court of law

    Once you prove that a defendant acted negligently, you can be awarded damages for your injuries. Compensatory damages can be awarded for economic and non-economic damages. The following is a list of compensatory damages a plaintiff can be awarded for a personal injury lawsuit:

    • Medical expenses
    • Pain and suffering
    • Property damage
    • Loss of wage and future loss of wages
    • Loss of consortium
    • Emotional distress

    This is not an exhaustive list. Other damages may be determined based on the circumstances of your case.

    ...I want to say that the Reiff Law Firm changed my entire life with handling of my legal case.

    As a former client, I want to say that the Reiff Law Firm changed my entire life with handling of my legal case. I was in a very serious automobile accident with severe injuries to neck and back areas. I contacted the law firm and asked what to do with the medical bills and how do I get the correct representation against the individual who rear-ended my car. In short, the firm took complete control of the case contacting my insurance company and asking for all the medical bills and legal matters be sent directly to them. I was able to get treatment from my doctor without worrying about the legal stuff. Furthermore, two years later the case was settled for a substantial amount of money. My life was much better due to the firm handling of my case. My attorneys at Reiff Law Firm are absolutely the best and I have recommended to my family friends. Thanks Reiff Law Firm.

    I’m very comfortable to say there’s no better in the city.

    Before meeting with Jeffrey Reiff and Bob Szostak from the Reiff law firm I’ve consulted with a few other injury attorneys in the Philadelphia region. Difference was, these guys know their stuff! I was absolutely blown away by how compassionate and welcome this law firm makes you feel. Once signed with them I never went a single week without staying in the loop with the progress and updates these guys have on your case. Working with them for some time turned what was an injury case, into a family! From calls and meetings, to just calling in to say “hi how’s everything going” I’ve never felt like a beat was skipped. I’d recommended the Reiff law firm 100%! I’m very comfortable to say there’s no better in the city. The awards they’ve earned over the years speaks for itself! I can never thank the Reiff law firm and Bob Szostak enough for everything they’ve done, their professionalism, compassion and all of their knowledge and experience! Highly rated! Best in the city! I look forward continuing our relationship in the future. Thanks again My Reiff family!

    ...without them I would have been lost.

    I can’t say enough great things about the Attorneys at the Reiff Law Firm. They made me feel at ease when I was going through a very difficult time in my life. Never being in a situation like this I was so unsure of where to start and how to go about the process. Justin gave me options where I thought I had none and explained everything in a way that I could understand. Justin and the team helped me arrange all of the treatment and therapy that I needed, without them I would have been lost. My attorney John went to bat for me like no one else could have, his knowledge and professionalism is unmatched. If anyone is ever in need of a team of attorneys the Reiff Law Firm is my ONLY recommendation.

Most importantly they were there for me during some extremely dark and difficult times in my life. I highly recommend the Reiff Law Firm to anyone seeking the very best legal representation for injuries they suffered in an accident.
