Snowmobiling is a popular wintertime recreational activity that affords Camrose residents the opportunity to enjoy a high-speed adventure through scenic nature trails. In addition to being an enjoyable source of wintertime fun and excitement, snowmobiles can also serve as a usual method of transportation for communities impacted by heavy snow accumulation.
Most experienced snowmobile riders understand the importance of preparation, caution, and vigilance while operating their off-road vehicles over frozen terrain. Without an abundance of caution, snowmobiles could lose their lives in submersion accidents, by being ejected from their vehicle, or by colliding with a stationary object on the trail. These kinds of accidents can result in fatalities. In fact, 80% of the country’s deadly snowmobile accidents are single-vehicle events.
Unfortunately, no level of caution can protect a snowmobile rider from the dangers presented by a negligent off-road vehicle operator. If someone operates their snowmobile recklessly, distractedly, or in an otherwise irresponsible and negligent manner, their wrongful actions could have profound impacts on another rider’s life and livelihood.
This is particularly true for inebriated snowmobile riders, whose disregard for the safety of others could cause a fatal collision. As it so happens, across the country, alcohol and/or drugs factor into more than half of fatal snowmobile accidents.
Those who manage to survive the near-death experience of a traumatic snowmobile accident frequently sustain a number of different injuries. As a result of the injuries they have sustained, snowmobile accident survivors often incur financial losses. These are often related to:
In the aftermath of an injury-causing snowmobile accident, injured accident victims often face long, challenging, and financially distressing journeys to recovery. This is particularly true for accident victims whose injuries prevent them from performing the duties of their job. All because of another off-road vehicle operator’s negligence, an injured snowmobile accident survivor may be unable to continue supporting themselves and their families.
Since anyone who operates a snowmobile in this province must have liability insurance, a negligent snowmobile operator’s insurance policy should cover the costs associated with injuries sustained by the victims of the accident they caused. However, insurance providers do not always make it easy for injured accident survivors to get the coverage they deserve.
