Riverview Snowmobile Accident Lawyer

Each winter, many Riverview residents experience the beautiful, natural views of the snowy local scenery while riding on an off-highway vehicle, like a snowmobile. Whether exploring local nature trails for fun or visiting rural locations impacted by heavy snowfall, snowmobiles afford nature enthusiasts an efficient and exciting method of wintertime travel.

That said, just like any motor vehicle, snowmobiles can be dangerous. Operating any kind of off-highway vehicle requires preparation even before setting out on an expedition. This is especially true of snowmobile rides over frozen bodies of water, like nearby lakes. Snowmobile riders who fail to take sufficient precautions risk immersion accidents. Snowmobile accidents on insufficiently frozen bodies of water are among some of the leading causes of immersion deaths as a result of drowning and hypothermia.

In addition to the risk of immersion accidents, the operators of these high-powered, high-speed motorized vehicles run the risk of sustaining injuries in collisions with stationary objects, like trees, or with other snowmobile riders. Even the most prepared snowmobile operator could be injured in an accident caused by a negligent rider. Injuries resulting from collisions with negligent snowmobile riders could be severe, impacting an accident victim’s physical well-being, psychological health, and financial security for the rest of their lives.

Serious accidents can occur when negligent snowmobile operators fail to take the safety of others into consideration. A failure to comply with the provincial laws regulating the safe use of off-highway vehicles could easily cause a collision with another snowmobile operator. When violations of the rules governing safe snowmobile use leads to injurious accidents, the at-fault snowmobile rider may be liable for damages sustained by the injured party as a result of their negligence.

Common examples of negligence that frequently lead to injury-causing snowmobile accidents include:

  • Driving under the influence of alcohol and/or drugs
  • Reckless driving
  • Excessive speeding
  • Distracted driving
  • Night riding with improper lighting
  • And more

Most commonly, snowmobile accidents occur at night. After the sun has gone down, not only is visibility significantly reduced, but negligent snowmobile riders may feel emboldened to engage in unlawful behaviour, such as drinking alcohol or driving recklessly. When this kind of wrongful conduct leads to a collision with another vehicle, accident victims could sustain a host of injuries, ranging in severity from mild to catastrophic. Some of these injuries 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
