The most common types of ski accidents in Massachusetts include:
- Downhill skiing accidents

- Collisions with other skiers or objects

Many skiers believe that they do not have any options, since many ski resorts require patrons to sign a waiver prior to using their facilities. This document absolves a facility from liability, but waivers are not always enforceable, and you should still speak with a lawyer about your options even if you have signed one.
