Sydney Snowmobile Accident Lawyer

In the areas surrounding Sydney, snowmobiles could be used as an efficient method of off-highway travel during the long winter months when heavy snowfalls make travelling by car difficult. On top of that, snowmobiles are a popular recreational activity for many winter sports enthusiasts. Riding a snowmobile through the scenic snow-covered landscapes near Sydney is a popular winter pastime.

Experienced snowmobile riders appreciate the importance of safety preparation, attentiveness, and caution when embarking on an off-highway vehicle expedition. Snowmobile accidents can be fatal. If riders plan on snowmobiling over frozen bodies of water but fail to check the ice’s condition before their expedition, they can lose their lives in immersion accidents, either by drowning or by falling victim to hypothermia.

However, the most common cause of snowmobile accidents resulting in wrongful deaths or injuries requiring hospitalization is negligence. Even the most prepared, most attentive, and most cautious off-highway vehicle operator can be injured in a collision caused by a negligent snowmobile operator. High-speed collisions with other snowmobiles or stationary objects like trees can cause safety-conscious snowmobile operators to suffer physical injuries and drastic alterations to their overall quality of life.

Snowmobile accidents mostly transpire at night. During the winter months, early nightfalls mean that snowmobile riders only have a narrow window of time in which to safely operate their vehicles. After dark, visibility becomes substantially reduced and the likelihood of injurious accidents increases significantly. Furthermore, irresponsible snowmobile riders may use the cover of darkness as an excuse to engage in reckless, negligent behaviour. Common examples of negligence that could result in a serious snowmobile accident include:

  • Operating the vehicle under the influence of alcohol and/or drugs
  • Driving recklessly
  • Speeding excessively
  • Stunt driving
  • And more

By engaging in unlawful, wrongful behaviour while operating their snowmobiles, negligent snowmobile riders put the lives and physical safety of others at risk. Those who survive snowmobile accidents often sustain serious injuries, including:

  • 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
  • Drowning
  • And more

Injured snowmobile riders are often required to pay for high costs of medical care, physical rehabilitation, lifestyle adjustments, and other unexpected expenses as a result of their accidents. On top of that, if their injuries prevent them from working, injured accident victims may lose wages and face a reduced earning capability, all because of another vehicle operator’s wrongful conduct.
