So long story short, I broke my fibula skiing "Livin' The Dream" up at Snowbird about a month ago. The break came when I started tumbling and my right ski didn't come off. Thinking back on the day, I had at least one other rough fall that day where the same ski didn't come off when it should have. I have all Rossi equip ('05 Scratch Sprayer BC's, Scratch 120 bindings, and Rossi boots). Anything I can do? I'm really just bummed out that I probably won't be back to ski this season. Anyone have a story on how long it took them to come back from a fibula fracture?
Ummm, if the binder was DEFECTIVE and that is why you got hurt...maybe, otherwise most likely not, they didn't mount or set your bindings, and if you touched them yourself, there's no way you're getting anything from anyone. Let it be, take your time and heal up strong for next season.
Funny you should say that, in the Netherlands a women broke her leg during her first day of skiing, sued a rental store and (I'm not sure) Head for the same thing, the rental store didn't even change the DIN settings because the lady had an average build and they always keep their settings below manufacturers recommendation. Judge's verdict: "Serious injuries are risks you submit to when skiļng." - word!
Though, sucks you broke your leg. Get better soon!
you don't ski in Holland, silly. well, maybe cross country. you can ice skate though. if you want to ski, you go to the alps, it;s not very far away. dank u wel.

you cant sue for you getting hurt, its assumption of risk when you're skiing. How would you prove your story? How would you prove anything? I cant stand fucking people, sue cause you got hurt skiing, fuck you man, thats how people kill shit, man up and stop bitching like the rest of us with injuries
yah thats messed man, ppl sue for anything these days, its your fault you fell you gooner

no kidding, Get over it, learn how to ski and you wont fall.
I just broke my clavical (thats collar bone for the slow NS'ers) what am i suppose to sue heavenly now because I'm hurt, NO. I was the one who tryed the rodeo off the kicker box.
If you sue Karma will come around in the form of a swift moving bus in your direction.
Wow guys. I kind of expected this sort of response. Anyway, the only reason I even considered seeking some sort of legal recourse was because I thought one of my bindings might have been DEFECTIVE. That same binding did not release on previous, hard falls that day. For the record, I never touched the settings on the bindings. Now ... of course I realize that simply falling and getting hurt is no reason to sue--that would be ridiculous and would warrant all the high-horse replies this thread has received. However, if the binding is proven defective, maybe there is something to go on. Although I admit that even with that proof it would be a long shot.
i have my bindings set to 8 and i have taken sone pretty nasty high speed ligament tearing falls where neither ski releases. it happens. get over it. go ahead and sue but come back and tell us how much molah you loose in court fees and the expense of a lawer so we can laugh at your stupid ass!
Pabst Blue Ribbon MMM MMM GOOD
I could use one right about now
um, no im not from canada, nice try though, but on a serious note. If you had concrete evidence that your binding was malfunctioning, than you probablyw ould have a case. But, the problem is you really don't. I believe you that it may have malfunctioned, but a court would not. It would definitely not be worth it because the court fees and lawyer fees would be multiple thousands of dollars. So although I may have been a bit blunt, but i really dont think you have a chance
i agree with u why the fuck would u sue.when i tore my spleen last year the insurance compian sent a sheet asking i wanted to sue the ski compian(armada) and sue the mountian i just took the sheet and threw it in the trash.
why would you continue to ski on a binding that hasn't been releasing? I'm pretty sure you should have gotten it checked out.
It sucks you got hurt and I hope you get better, but I don't think you would get very far.
