Grande Prairie Snowmobile Accident Lawyers

Residents of Grande Prairie are no strangers to long winters and heavy snowfalls. To break up the monotony of the cold winter months, many community members participate in a fun, high-speed, recreational activity: snowmobiling.

Riding a snowmobile can infuse a jolt of energy into the tedium of winter. Operating these high-power off-highway vehicles can be an exciting and entertaining excursion. Snowmobiles can provide practical options for essential winter transportation in rural areas and communities impacted by heavy snowfall.

Just like any motor vehicle, though, riding a snowmobile can be dangerous. Snowmobile accidents can lead to injuries requiring hospitalization, or even fatalities. Snowmobile riders can lose their lives in accidents even if no other vehicle is involved. As a matter of fact, 80% of the country’s deadly snowmobile accidents are single-vehicle events.

Unfortunately, many snowmobile riders are often injured or killed as the result of accidents caused by a negligent off-highway vehicle operator. If a negligent snowmobile rider fails to consider the potential outcomes of their wrongful behaviour, their actions could have severe, long-lasting consequences.

One of the most common causes of serious snowmobile accidents is driver inebriation. Nationwide, alcohol and/or drugs factor into more than half of fatal snowmobile accidents. Other examples of negligence that could lead to a snowmobile accident include speeding, recklessness, driver distraction, and night riding with improper lighting.

The people who sustain injuries in snowmobile accidents often incur significant financial losses. Oftentimes, these are related to:

  • Medical expenses
  • Lost wages
  • Reduced future earning capabilities
  • Attendant care
  • Housekeeping services
  • Psychological counseling
  • Physical therapy
  • Occupational therapy
  • Massage therapy
  • Acupuncture
  • Professional nursing and ambulance services
  • Medically necessary equipment
  • Home and vehicle modifications
  • And more

Because snowmobile operators are required to have liability insurance, if you were injured in a collision caused by a negligent off-highway vehicle operator, their insurance policy should cover the costs associated with your injuries.

Unfortunately, insurance providers do not always make it easy for injured accident survivors to get the coverage they deserve. By working with our Grande Prairie snowmobile accident lawyers, you may be able to recover the maximum amount of damages to which you should be entitled.
