Port Hawkesbury Snowmobile Accident Lawyer


Snowmobiling is a popular wintertime activity that attracts both seasoned enthusiasts and novices to the sport. Experienced snowmobile riders can appreciate the fact that, like any motor vehicle, snowmobiles can be dangerous. Operating the off-highway vehicle without proper preparation, alertness, and caution can result in serious accidents in which other people can be seriously harmed.

The rules governing the safe operation of snowmobiles are outlined in the provincial Off-Highway Vehicle Act. Snowmobile riders have a legal responsibility to the people around them, and are required to operate their off-highway vehicles with a reasonable degree of caution. These rules exist to protect snowmobile riders from the increasing risk of fatal and injurious accidents.

Each year, as a byproduct of snowmobile riders’ failures to operate their vehicles in a responsible manner, lives are lost in traumatic collisions and severe injuries are sustained by the victims of snowmobile accidents. Many of these accidents occur after dark, when reckless, inebriated, or otherwise negligent snowmobile riders may feel emboldened to violate the laws outlined in the Off-Highway Vehicle Act.

If a snowmobile rider’s wrongful actions cause another snowmobile rider to sustain injuries in a collision, they may 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 an off-highway vehicle operator’s negligence causes an accident in which someone else sustains compensable injuries, the at-fault rider may be responsible for providing the injured accident victim with financial compensation for damages they have incurred because of the injuries they have sustained. Depending on the severity of the injuries sustained by snowmobile accident victims and the impact they have on an injured person’s overall quality of life, these damages could be both economic and non-economic in nature, and might include:

  • Medical expenses
  • Rehabilitation costs
  • Ongoing medical care/in-home care
  • Lost wages due to missed work
  • Loss of future earning capacity
  • Adjusted living expenses
  • Pain and suffering
  • And possibly more
