$303K Settlement in Copper Mountain Ski Collision Case

Our client, an Orthopedic Surgeon, was struck from behind by an out of control skier on Rhapsody Run at Copper Mountain on 11/24/19. Client had slowed for a “slow zone” and described the collision as being “hit by a truck.” Client suffered multiple fractures and was hospitalized for 6 days at St. Anthony’s. He lost consciousness and suffered multiple fractures including ribs and a separated clavicle which required surgical repair. The accident prevented our client from returning to his busy orthopedic practice for several weeks.

Our client was represented by partner Jim Chalat. Jim secured a $303K settlement on his behalf.
