Chéticamp Snowmobile Accident Lawyer

The scenic nature trails and national parks in the Chéticamp region attract nature enthusiasts from across the province. In the winter months, off-highway vehicle operators enjoy exploring these breathtaking, snow-covered, natural settings while riding high-powered, high-speed snowmobiles.

Safely enjoying this beloved wintertime recreational activity requires proper preparation, experience, and an abundance of caution. Unfortunately, though, even the most safety-conscious snowmobile rider could be seriously injured in an accident caused by another off-highway vehicle operator’s negligence.

Common examples of injuries that could be sustained in a collision with a negligent snowmobile operator include:

  • Broken or fractured bones
  • Whiplash and other soft tissue injuries
  • Concussions
  • Traumatic brain injuries
  • Sprains and strains
  • Musculoskeletal injuries
  • Internal bleeding
  • Organ damage
  • Fractured ribs
  • Neck and back injuries
  • Spinal cord injuries
  • Paralysis
  • Traumatic amputations
  • And more

If a snowmobile rider’s wrongful actions cause another snowmobile rider to sustain injuries in a collision, they may be considered negligent. 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

Throughout the province, anyone who operates a snowmobile is required to do so with a reasonable degree of caution, and in accordance with the rules outlined in the provincial Off-Highway Vehicle Act. Snowmobile riders owe a duty of care to the people around them, and must take certain preventative measures to reduce the risk of causing a serious accident and injuring someone else.

If a snowmobile rider’s misconduct results in an accident in which someone else is physically hurt, they may be liable for damages incurred by the injured accident victim as a result of the injuries they sustained in the collision.These damages often include:

  • Medical expenses
  • Rehabilitation costs
  • Ongoing medical care/in-home care
  • Lost wages due to missed work
  • Loss of future earning capacity
  • Adjusted living expenses
  • Pain and suffering
  • And possibly more
