Many of the actions that lead to serious snowmobile accidents are similar to the actions that cause automobile accidents.
These include: Dangerous and aggressive driving, distracted driving, operations in low-visibility conditions, and drug and alcohol impairment.
However, there are some kinds of negligence that are unique to snowmobile accidents. These include:
- Crashing through frozen surfaces
- Riding on poorly maintained trails
- Using defectively manufactured snowmobiles
Much like automobile and motor cycle accidents, snowmobile accidents often result in serious injuries, including but not limited to:
- Traumatic brain injuries
- Severe bone breaks ad fractures
- Sever lacerations
- Spinal cord injuries
- Commas and death.
So how will a snowmobile injury lawyer be able to help? First of all, just as automobiles drivers are required to get insurance on their vehicles, so are snowmobile drivers (as per the Snow Vehicles Act).
It is also important to note that snow mobile insurance, like automobile insurance, is considered no fault. Meaning that injured snowmobile drivers may have access to similar benefits as injured car drivers. Another tactic that can be used is to seek financial compensation through a tort claim against the snowmobile driver.
A personal injury lawyer can get you compensation to deal with the following expenses: medical costs, physical therapy and rehabilitation costs, lost wages, reduction in future earning capacity, physical pain and suffering, and funeral costs.
