Amherst Snowmobile Accident Lawyer

The country trails near Amherst provide the perfect scenery for wintertime nature expeditions. Off-highway vehicle enthusiasts can attest that the beauty of these picturesque rural areas are best enjoyed while riding a snowmobile. This high-octane recreational activity affords locals and visitors to the region the opportunity to discover nature from the back of a fast, powerful machine.

Experienced snowmobile riders can appreciate the importance of preparation, caution, and alertness while traveling through the countryside at high speeds. However, even the most prepared, safety-conscious snowmobile enthusiast could be at risk of being injured in an accident caused by a negligent off-highway vehicle operator.

Snowmobile accidents most commonly occur after dark. Once the sun has set, visibility in remote regions is greatly reduced, meaning that snowmobile riders need to proceed with extra caution. However, reckless and irresponsible recreational riders may use the cover of darkness to indulge in unsafe behaviours. Their lack of consideration for their own safety and the safety of others could lead to injurious and even fatal accidents.

Many snowmobile accidents are the result of their driver’s inebriation. Operating a dangerous off-highway vehicle under the influence of alcohol or drugs could cause another person’s family to lose a loved one. It could also cause an unsuspecting accident victim to sustain severe, potentially life-altering injuries. If a snowmobile rider operates their vehicle under the influence of alcohol and/or drugs and causes a collision in which another person sustains injuries, the at-fault rider may be considered negligent.

In fact, any violation of the rules outlined in the provincial Off-Highway Vehicle Act may be considered negligence. Common examples of negligence that often results in injurious snowmobile accidents include:

  • Driving under the influence of alcohol and/or drugs
  • Reckless driving
  • Excessive speeding
  • Distracted driving
  • Failing to signal
  • Night riding with improper lighting
  • And more

The negligence of a snowmobile rider can have disastrous consequences for injured accident victims. People who have sustained injuries in snowmobile accidents often face long periods of hospitalization and often incur substantial financial losses because of their injuries.

Negligent snowmobile riders whose wrongful conduct was responsible for harming another person may be liable for damages incurred by the injured party. That means, if you were injured in a snowmobile accident caused by another rider’s negligence, our snowmobile accident lawyers serving Amherst may be able to help you recover financial compensation.
