Conal Doyle obtained a confidential settlement on behalf of Moses Mederos, a 33 year old executive who was trapped in an avalanche on the face of the “headwall” run at Squaw Valley USA, one of the most popular and commonly traversed ski runs in the United States. Mr. Mederos suffered a severe shoulder injury, requiring surgery and extensive rehabilitation. Squaw Valley denied liability for the accident and a confidential settlement was obtained after a lawsuit was filed.
