Snowmobile Accident Lawyers Canmore

Snowmobiling may be an exhilarating recreational pastime during the cold winter months, but this beloved activity can be extremely dangerous. Each year, on average 73 people die in snowmobile accidents.

Even if a snowmobile rider takes proper precautions before setting out on their expedition and operates their machine with extreme attentiveness, they could be seriously injured or even lose their life in an unexpected calamity. Many fatal snowmobile accidents involve submersions. Riders who operate their machines over thin ice could lose their lives in a drowning accident. Many other victims of single-vehicle snowmobile accidents are fatally injured when they collide with a stationary object, such as a tree.

Despite the fact that the majority of deadly snowmobile accidents are single-vehicle incidents, 20% of fatal snowmobile accidents involve multiple vehicles. If a snowmobile accident involves more than one driver, more often than not, one driver’s negligence is primarily to blame.

If a snowmobile operator does not fulfill the duty of care they owe to other riders and trail-users,

their wrongful conduct could lead to a fatal or injury-causing accident. A snowmobile rider may be considered negligent if they engage in any form of unsafe behaviour while operating their vehicle. Examples often include:

  • Driving under the influence of alcohol and/or drugs
  • Reckless driving
  • Excessive speeding
  • Distracted driving
  • Night riding with improper lighting
  • And more

Those who survive traumatic collisions caused by another snowmobile rider’s negligence often sustain injuries. Depending on the circumstances of the collision, these injuries can vary in severity from moderate to catastrophic.

Recovering from injuries sustained in snowmobile accidents can be a difficult, emotionally challenging, and expensive process. And even though off-highway vehicle operators throughout Alberta are required to have liability insurance to cover the costs of injuries resulting from their misconduct, insurance providers do not always make the process of collecting fair compensation simple or straightforward.

No one should be forced to pay the price of someone else’s negligence. If a reckless, distracted, inebriated, or otherwise negligent snowmobile rider caused you to sustain injuries in a collision, our Canmore snowmobile accident lawyers may be able to help you recover the compensation you deserve.  By fighting against the unfair tactics often used by insurance providers to cheat deserving accident victims out of fair compensation, our snowmobile accident lawyers may be able to provide you with crucial legal support in your pursuit of justice.
