Edmundston Snowmobile Accident Lawyer


Snowmobiling may be an exhilarating recreational pastime during the cold winter months, but this beloved activity can be extremely dangerous. The number of fatal snowmobile accidents in the Maritimes is the highest it has been in years. Even if a snowmobile rider takes proper precautions before setting out on their expedition and operates their machine with extreme attentiveness, they run the risk of being involved in an accident caused by another snowmobile driver exercising less caution.

Fatal snowmobile accidents can be the result of poor weather conditions, especially when riding an off-road vehicle on frozen bodies of water. Immersion deaths resulting from unfavourable ice conditions are on the rise, as are fatal accidents caused by the wrongful conduct of other snowmobile operators.

Those who survive traumatic collisions caused by another driver’s unlawful behaviour often sustain injuries. Depending on the circumstances of the collision, a snowmobile accident victim may acquire a range of injuries that vary in severity. 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

The injured survivors of snowmobile accidents often incur financial losses because of their collision. This is especially true for injured accident victims whose injuries prevent them from continuing to carry out the duties of their occupation. When this happens, in addition to newly acquired injury-related expenses, snowmobile accident survivors could experience lost wages due to missed work, and even reduced future earning capabilities. An accident victim’s life and livelihood could be substantially affected, all because of someone else’s negligence.

Negligence is one of the most common causes of injurious snowmobile accidents. In accordance with provincial legislation, anyone who operates an off-road vehicle has a legal responsibility to do so with a reasonable degree of caution and in consideration of other people’s safety. Failure to carry out this duty of care by engaging in wrongful, unlawful behaviour while operating an off-road vehicle may be considered negligence. Common examples of negligence that could result in serious, injury-causing snowmobile accidents include:

  • Operating the snowmobile under the influence of alcohol and/or drugs
  • Speeding
  • Reckless driving
  • Texting while driving
  • Driver distraction
  • And more
