Miramichi Snowmobile Accident Lawyer

Few regions in the Maritimes have as favourable conditions for snowmobiling as Miramichi. Each winter, local residents, visitors, tourists, and adventure enthusiasts set out on scenic expeditions atop a high-powered, high-speed off-road vehicle to infuse their seasonal doldrums with a jolt of excitement and energy.

Seasoned snowmobile riders can appreciate the importance of safety, caution, and alertness while engaging in this fun recreational activity. However, inexperienced snowmobile riders may be more likely to participate in reckless, unsafe behaviours while exploring their off-road vehicle’s capabilities. When snowmobilers operate their potentially dangerous machines without considering the safety of others nearby, these negligent snowmobile drivers could cause serious, even fatal collisions.

According to the province’s Off-Road Vehicle Act, anyone who operates a snowmobile is required to do so responsibly and with consideration for the safety of other people around them. If a snowmobile driver fails to exercise a reasonable degree of caution while riding their off-road vehicle, other snowmobilers can be seriously injured or killed in a collision. As a consequence of violating the rules governing the use of off-road vehicles, the at-fault party whose wrongful actions led to an accident could be considered negligent. Therefore, they may be responsible for financially compensating the people injured because of their recklessness.

Operating a snowmobile under the influence of alcohol and/or drugs is perhaps the most common example of driver negligence that leads to injury-causing snowmobile accidents in the Miramichi area. Snowmobile accidents most often occur at night, when visibility is low and negligent drivers may be emboldened to engage in irresponsible behaviours. In addition to driving in the dark while inebriated, other examples of negligence that could lead to fatal or injurious snowmobile accidents include distracted driving, speeding, and reckless driving.

The negligence of another snowmobile rider can have far-reaching effects on an accident victim’s life and livelihood. Snowmobile accident survivors often sustain injuries that may require hospitalization, rehabilitative therapies, major lifestyle adjustments, and expensive costs of necessary care. Accident survivors whose injuries prevent them from returning to the workplace may find themselves struggling to keep up with their newly acquired costs in addition to their regular costs of living. Injured accident victims who can no longer work as a result of the injuries they sustained may experience legitimate financial distress in addition to the physical and psychological pains arising from their injuries.

When a negligent snowmobiler collides with an unsuspecting snowmobile operator, the accident victim could sustain a host of injuries, ranging in severity from moderate to catastrophic. Examples of injuries often sustained by snowmobile accident survivors 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
