Bridgewater Snowmobile Accident Lawyer


Snowmobile accidents can have serious consequences. People who operate their dangerous, high-speed motor vehicles in a negligent manner can seriously impact the physical safety, emotional well-being, financial security, and overall quality of life of the people they injure.

Experienced snowmobile operators can appreciate how much attentiveness and caution is required to operate their off-highway vehicles. Even though snowmobiles can infuse the long winter months with bursts of fun and excitement, in order to safely enjoy this recreational activity, caution must be exercised at all times. Snowmobile accidents caused by the negligence of other drivers can be fatal. In fact, deadly snowmobile accidents are on the rise in the region, and are frequently the result of other drivers’ wrongful conduct.

The majority of injurious snowmobile accidents occur at night. Visibility is significantly lower on nature trails and over frozen waterways after the sun has set, which may make it more difficult for the operators of off-highway vehicles traveling at high speeds to see other, oncoming vehicles.

Furthermore, the cover of darkness often emboldens more reckless snowmobile riders to indulge in careless forms of conduct, such as consuming alcohol and/or drugs while operating their machines. Alcohol plays a role in many fatal or injurious snowmobile accidents.

In accordance with the province’s Off-Highway Vehicle Act, anyone who operates a snowmobile is required to do so with a reasonable degree of caution. They are required by law to comply with the rules governing the use of their dangerous vehicles. If a snowmobile rider violates these rules and causes an injurious collision with another vehicle, they could 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

If a snowmobile rider engages in negligent conduct while operating their vehicle, other innocent, unsuspecting, rule-abiding off-highway vehicle operators can lose their lives. Those fortunate enough to survive serious snowmobile accidents often sustain a number of injuries of varying degrees of severity, including:

  • 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 injuries sustained by victims of snowmobile accidents can have profound, life-changing repercussions for injured riders and their families. Often requiring extensive– and expensive– medical care, injured snowmobile accident survivors may be subject to long periods of hospitalization and substantial financial losses.
