When temperatures hit sub-zero, that’s when the winter fun and sports begin. But the freezing weather, low visibility, and icy trails are also prime conditions for snowmobile accidents.
At Zayouna Law Firm, we’re big fans of winter fun, but we recognize the dangers in the snow. It’s easy to blame the weather and road conditions alone, but we believe that we all play a part in safe and responsible winter recreation. Our snowmobile accident lawyers can help you and your family discover the true culprit of a catastrophic snowmobile accident, and seek damages for injuries and suffering.
Did you know that there are over 1,200 snowmobile-related injuries each year, with about 50 deaths? Beyond freezing conditions and rough terrains, this beloved winter activity may not be all that safe, especially when surrounded by careless and irresponsible drivers on hazardous trails.
Under the Motorized Snow Vehicles Act, snowmobiles are recognized as vehicles, and must be insured similar to those that run on highways. This entitles you to statutory accident benefits similar to that of an auto insurance policy.
Accident benefits are rarely enough to provide for all the devastating effects of a snowmobile accident — from physical trauma and medical expenses, to loss of income and earning capacity, and pain and suffering.
Many insurers are known to dispute, delay, minimize, and even deny valid accident benefits claims, leaving victims and families even more hopeless and lost.
Low visibility, poorly maintained trails, and negligent drivers can all lead to catastrophic snowmobile accidents with potentially permanent, life-altering effects. But as a safe and responsible snowmobiler, you should not have to pay the deadly consequences of an accident.
Our snowmobile accident lawyers can help you file a snowmobile accident claim to seek justice and compensation from those responsible for your accident. Rightful compensation can help alleviate these life-altering physical, emotional, and financial burdens:
Trail conditions, driver behaviour, and other unexpected hazards can all play a part in snowmobile accidents with catastrophic outcomes.
A snowmobile accident claim helps ensure that you do not pay the price for someone else’s reckless driving behaviour, or failure to maintain recreational trails.
The most experienced snowmobilers are no strangers to freezing temperatures — it’s the essence of snowmobiling. There’s more to a devastating snowmobile accident than the weather.
Our snowmobile accident lawyers can help you determine the cause of your snowmobile accident and who is at fault. You can file a snowmobile accident claim against them and seek compensation for the harm they have caused you.
With fast speeds and sharp turns, snowmobile accidents can result in minor to catastrophic injuries and outcomes. A snowmobile accident claim allows you to seek compensation depending on the severity of the damages you sustained.
At Zayouna Law Firm, we share your appreciation for good winter fun, but we also place a premium on safety. Our lawyers are dedicated to helping you claim the compensation you deserve, and ensure your recovery from a devastating snowmobile accident.
Zayouna Law Firm is here to help you deal with the aftermath of a snowmobile accident. Our lawyers are here for you every step of the way — from consultation and representation to compensation and recovery. We can expertly build a strong claim in your best interest with our vast legal expertise in personal injury law.
Seek medical attention right away, and report the accident to proper authorities. Take photos of the accident, damages to your snowmobile, and injuries, and collect all relevant documents. Make sure to contact your insurance provider right away. Note that you only have limited time to notify your insurer and the at-fault party of your intent to sue and commence a snowmobile accident claim.
During your first consultation, a personal injury lawyer will establish the facts of your accident to determine if you have a viable claim. They will need to know if:
You must have a valid driver’s license or a snow-vehicle operator’s license (MSVOL). Your snowmobile must be registered with the Ministry Transportation, and you must carry appropriate liability insurance. Before riding, you should take a snowmobiling safety course.
When riding, pay attention to weather and trail conditions, and stay alert for potential hazards. Make it a habit to travel with other snowmobilers only in well-lit areas, and avoid frozen surfaces and other areas where ice is thin. Carry a first-aid kit at all times, and never drive under the influence of drugs or alcohol.
At Zayouna Law Firm, we have assembled a team of professionals dedicated to serving seriously injured clients with knowledge and sensitivity. Collectively, our highly skilled personal injury lawyers bring decades of experience to the work of helping thousands of injured clients return their lives to their pre-accident state.Read More
