Halifax Snowmobile Accident Lawyer


During the winter months, Halifax residents often escape the city to enjoy recreational excursions in snow-covered rural areas. Snowmobiling can be an invigorating way to enjoy the local scenery. On top of that, for Halifax residents visiting nearby communities impacted by heavy snowfalls, operating a snowmobile may simply be a practical option for essential travel.

Even  though snowmobiles may be used for recreational purposes, operating them safely requires training, alertness, common sense, and an understanding of specific rules. Just like any high-performance machine, snowmobiles can be dangerous. Collisions with other drivers or stationary objects, or other accidents caused by negligence can lead Halifax snowmobile operators to sustain serious injuries.

When accidents on snowmobiles occur, they can result in serious injuries, and even fatalities. Some injuries commonly sustained in snowmobile accidents include:

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

While some accidents may be unavoidable, the majority of snowmobile collisions are preventable. Most snowmobile accidents are caused by impaired driving. Other common risk factors of serious snowmobile accidents include excessive speeding, and driving at night.

Depending on the nature of your accident, you may be eligible to pursue financial compensation for damages you incurred as a result of your injuries. If you were seriously injured in a collision, our snowmobile accident lawyers in Halifax may be able to review the circumstances of your accident in a free, initial consultation, and explain any legal options that may be available to you.

Snowmobiles are regulated by the province’s Off-highway Vehicles Act. In accordance with the province’s snowmobile rules and regulations, snowmobile operators can only operate their vehicle after obtaining a safety training certificate. Halifax residents with a valid driver’s license may be able to obtain a training certificate by passing a safety text. Unlicensed community members will most likely be required to successfully complete a safety training course in order to receive their certificate.

However, obtaining a safety certificate is not necessarily an indicator of future behaviour on the trail. When a snowmobile operator’s wrongful conduct causes an accident, serious injuries can be sustained. Often, injuries sustained in snowmobile accidents can lead to physical, emotional, and financial damages.
