Shelburne Snowmobile Accident Lawyer

Like any motor vehicle, snowmobiles can be extremely dangerous. In order to safely enjoy this beloved winter pastime, snowmobile enthusiasts need to exercise caution and good judgment on whichever snow-covered nature trails or frozen bodies of water they choose to explore. Experienced snowmobile riders know the importance of proper preparation before setting out on their off-highway vehicles, and the vital necessity for vigilance on the trails.

That said, even the most prepared, safety-minded snowmobile operator could be involved in an accident caused by a negligent off-highway vehicle operator. Accidents on snow-covered trails in the rural areas near Shelburne can cause snowmobile accident victims to sustain severe injuries, and even lose their lives.

Most snowmobile accidents that end in injuries or fatalities are the result of another snowmobile rider’s negligence. The people who ride snowmobiles throughout the province are legally required to comply with the safety rules and protocols outlined in the Off-Highway Vehicle Act. Violations of any number of these rules could lead to a snowmobile accident in which an innocent, unsuspecting member of the local community could be killed or catastrophically injured. When snowmobile riders violate the rules mandated by the Off-Highway Vehicle Act and an injurious collision with another rider ensues, the at-fault vehicle operator may be considered negligent and, therefore, responsible for financially compensating the injured victims of the accident they caused.

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

The negligence of off-highway vehicle operators could have far-reaching implications for the people injured as a result of their wrongful conduct. Injured snowmobile accident survivors often incur significant financial losses as a result of the injuries they have sustained. In these situations, people who have sustained compensable injuries in an off-highway vehicle collision may benefit from a free initial consultation with our snowmobile accident lawyers serving Shelburne.
