Snowmobile Accident Lawyers Lloydminster

There is nothing quite like an off-highway adventure through majestic, snow-covered scenery. Many winter sports enthusiasts look forward to the heavy snows and bracing temperatures so they can explore the local landscape on their high-speed vehicles.

On top of being a jolt of energy and source of recreation during the long winter months, snowmobiles can also be an essential mode of transportation for people living in rural communities. People living in areas impacted by heavy snowfalls often rely on these off-highway vehicles during the winter months.

Experienced snowmobilers appreciate the importance of preparation before an expedition. That is because snowmobiling can be dangerous. It is important to dress appropriately, pack emergency supplies, check weather conditions, and take other necessary safety measures before putting oneself in potentially hazardous circumstances.

Planning a route in advance and avoiding frozen bodies of water could help prevent submersion accidents. These single-vehicle accidents are one of the leading causes of fatal snowmobile accidents, which are responsible for the majority of snowmobile-related deaths. In fact, 80% of the country’s deadly snowmobile accidents are single-vehicle events.

Unfortunately, despite even the most thorough preparations, snowmobile accidents can and do occur. All-too often, these accidents are the result of driver negligence. When another driver operates their off-highway vehicle in an unsafe manner, unsuspecting snowmobile riders can sustain serious injuries.

Snowmobile accidents tend to take place mostly after nightfall. After dark, snowmobile riders may be more inclined to drink alcohol or take illicit drugs before operating their machines. Inebriated driving is one of the most common causes of fatal snowmobile accidents throughout the country. Throughout the nation, alcohol and/or drugs factor into more than half of fatal snowmobile accidents.

If a negligent snowmobile operator fails to consider the safety of other people around them by drinking and driving, speeding excessively, behaving recklessly on their snowmobiles, or engaging in other wrongful conduct while operating their dangerous machines, they may be liable for damages incurred by the people they injure. These damage often include:

  • 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

Anyone who operates a snowmobile in this province must have liability insurance. Therefore, if you were injured in a snowmobile accident caused by a negligent rider, their insurance policy should cover the costs associated with their injuries. Unfortunately, insurance providers do not always make it easy for injured accident survivors to get the coverage they deserve.
