New Glasgow Snowmobile Accident Lawyer


In addition to being an exciting and invigorating recreational activity, during the winter months, riding a snowmobile may prove to be a useful form of transportation, especially for people traveling throughout rural communities affected by heavy snowfalls. Snowmobiles can keep people in remote areas connected to their loved ones and to essential services. They can also provide riders with breathtaking views of snow-covered nature trails and frozen waterways.

However, riding a snowmobile can be dangerous. Fatal snowmobile accidents in the region are on the rise, and the negligence of other off-highway vehicle operators is frequently the cause.

When reckless, distracted, inebriated, or otherwise negligent snowmobile riders fail to consider how their wrongful behaviours could affect others, serious accidents can occur. The people who survive near-fatal snowmobile accidents frequently sustain severe, catastrophic, and permanent injuries as a result of another party’s negligence.

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

When negligent snowmobile operators shirk the duty of care they owe other riders, their wrongful actions can have significant consequences. Snowmobile accident survivors can sustain a range of injuries, varying in severity from moderate to catastrophic. These injuries often 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
