Antigonish Snowmobile Accident Lawyer


The residents of Antigonish are no strangers to heavy snowfall and freezing temperatures. Each winter, to liven up the dark, cold days, countless off-highway vehicle enthusiasts participate in a high-speed, high-octane, recreational activity through scenic nature trails and breathing views of snow-covered terrain.

Snowmobiling is a beloved winter pastime that requires attentiveness, focus, preparation, and an abundance of caution. Like all motor vehicles, snowmobiles can be dangerous. Fatal snowmobile accidents in the region are on the rise, and those who take part in the activity must take serious precautions to avoid injuring themselves in an accident.

Unfortunately, even the most safety-conscious snowmobile operator is vulnerable to the misconduct of negligent off-highway vehicle drivers. If a reckless, distracted, inebriated, or otherwise negligent snowmobile rider causes a collision, their wrongful actions could have drastic, life-altering repercussions for unsuspecting snowmobile accident victims.

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

When the misconduct of negligent snowmobile riders causes a collision with another off-highway vehicle operator, accident victims could lose their lives. They could also sustain severe, disabling injuries as a result of the negligent driver’s wrongful actions. As a result of the injuries they have sustained in a snowmobile accident, injured riders could experience physical difficulties, emotional distress, and financial hardship.

Anyone who operates a snowmobile is required to do so in a safe fashion and in consideration for the safety of other people around them. If a snowmobile rider violates the rules governing safe operation of their vehicle as outlined in the province’s Off-Highway Vehicle Act and an injurious accident occurs as a result, the at-fault driver may be liable for damages incurred by injured accident victims.

That is why, if an off-highway vehicle operator’s negligence caused you to sustain compensable injuries in a collision, our snowmobile accident lawyers serving Antigonish may be able to offer crucial legal advice and assistance. By working with our Antigonish snowmobile accident lawyers, you may be able to pursue a civil claim to recover damages you incurred as a result of your accident. These damages might include:
