Traumatic Brain Injury Lawsuit Against Ski Resort

| Jun 10, 2014 | Uncategorized |

Sugarloaf ski area sued by Delaware family for an accident that caused back injuries and traumatic brain injury to a Delaware doctor.

A Maine judge has ruled that a lawsuit brought by a Delaware family injured in a ski lift accident in 2010 can move forward. Dr. Michael Katz, an anesthesiologist from Centreville and former Delaware state senator, suffered a broken back and traumatic brain injury. He was the most seriously injured of the eight people hurt in the December 2010 accident at Sugarloaf Mountain in Carrabassett Valley. His daughters, 13 and 11 at the time, suffered back and head injuries. They sued the ski area’s operators and associated entities in October, seeking unspecified damages. The Sun Journal reports that Franklin County Justice Nancy Mills last month dismissed a counterclaim by the ski area and ruled that the ski lift is a common carrier. A lawyer for the Katzes called the ruling “very good news.” A Sugarloaf spokesman could not be reached. This story includes material from the Associated Press. Original story here.

He actually persuaded me not to settle because he believed that we had a great case. So we took the case to trial and he fought like crazy for me. And we won! It was a really good experience —well, as much as it can be for a lawsuit — and I’m very happy I went with them. I’ve been really blessed to have him as my attorney, so I recommend him whenever I can.”
