Multi-Million Dollar Lawsuit Filed By Snowboarder

Posted:

A snowboarder from the Edmonton area has filed a multi-million dollar lawsuit after he hit his head on a snow-making hydrant and was left permanently disabled as a result of this. The lawsuit, which is seeking four million dollars, has been filed against the Snow Valley Ski Club by Justin Ward.

The City of Edmonton actually owns the land on which the ski club operates, and has also been named as a defendant in the case. The incident is said to have occurred in January 2006 when Ward was snowboarding at the club, and he hit his head on the artificial snow making machine.

The result of the incident was neck and brain injuries, and his lawsuit claims that he has been left physically and mentally impaired. The lawsuit claims that he has lost both opportunities and income as a result of this and will continue to do so in the future.

The lawsuit claims that the ski club was negligent for failing to put the hydrant in a safer location where it would not pose a danger to those using the ski and snowboarding facilities.
