NSAA Winter 2017 East Conference and Trade Show

RWGM attorney Matthew “Jim” Kelly

RWGM Attorney Matthew “Jim” Kelly recently spoke at the NSAA winter 2017 East Conference and Trade Show held at Mount Snow, Vermont in a presentation with other speakers regarding “Premise Liability: Much More than Slip and Falls.”  The presentation addressed how resorts across the country are seeing a steady increase in non-skiing and summer related activities, and these incidences may continue to increase as resorts continue to evolve into three and four season vacation spots.  As a result, increasing claims and costly lawsuits are increasing. Covered were variations of laws that may apply to these incidents and how resorts can be proactive before an incident occurs, as well as other challenges, such as employee awareness/execution, relationships with manufacturers, releases and incident investigations.  Contact Mr. Kelly for further information, or to retain his services at [email protected]
