Fredericton Snowmobile Accident Lawyer


Fatal snowmobile accidents are on the rise in the province. Although this recreational activity has the potential to be an enjoyable, carefree winter sport, like any motor vehicle, snowmobiles can be extremely dangerous. Safely operating these off-highway vehicles means following a set of specific rules, remaining alert at all times, and taking necessary precautions before setting out on an expedition through snowy scenery.

Snowmobile drivers operating their vehicles over frozen bodies of water run the risk of losing their lives in immersion accidents. Additionally, riding a snowmobile at night when visibility is low could lead to collisions with stationary objects like trees. These types of accidents can be deadly, and are among the leading causes of fatal snowmobile accidents throughout the province.

However, in rural areas near Fredericton, the negligence of other off-highway vehicle operators is a major cause of fatal or injury-causing snowmobile accidents. Even the most prepared, safety-minded snowmobile operator is susceptible to accidents with negligent snowmobilers.

When negligent snowmobile riders fail to take the safety of others into consideration, accidents can occur. Snowmobile accidents could cause unsuspecting, responsible off-highway vehicle operators to lose their lives, or sustain serious injuries. Some injuries that are often sustained in snowmobile accidents 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
  • Drowning
  • And more

Determining liability in snowmobile accident cases can be challenging. However, if the at-fault party violated the provincial rules and regulations governing the use of off-highway vehicles, they may be responsible for compensating the people injured by their negligence for damages they have incurred as a result. Negligence may refer to a number of violations of these rules. For example, if a snowmobiler was operating their vehicle under the influence of alcohol and/or illicit drugs and caused a collision with another rider, they may be considered negligent. Other common examples of negligence that could cause snowmobile accidents include distracted driving, excessive speeding, reckless operation of the vehicle, and more.

If you were injured in a collision that occurred because of another vehicle operator’s negligence, our snowmobile accident lawyers serving Fredericton may be able to help you pursue legal action against the at-fault party.
