How We Can Help

Snowmobiling is a popular winter activity throughout Ontario and can be a fun way to enjoy our winter months. Unfortunately, the high speeds that snowmobiles can reach make injuries extremely common. The smallest mistake can often lead to substantial harm to a driver, passenger or pedestrian. At Tierney Stauffer, our expertise in personal injury law paired with years of experience make us an ideal solution for your case.

Causes of Snowmobile Accidents

Snowmobiles can reach high speeds and provide a freeing sensation to riders and their passengers, but they are also vehicles that are incredibly sensitive to weather conditions. Snow roughness, debris on the ground, ice, water, and other natural elements all influence the amount of control the driver has when steering. Much like ATVs and even motorcycles, snowmobiles offer little to no protection if you take that next corner too sharply. These vehicles are susceptible to flipping and rolling in more extreme or unexpected conditions such as freezing rain. That speed, combined with the minimal protection and sensitive steering, makes for a dangerous combination that can pose a serious injury risk to drivers, passengers, and nearby pedestrians.

A Long Road to Recovery

The severe velocity of a snowmobile accident is influenced by speed and the lack of rider protection. Therefore, a single mishap may result in months of therapy. Permanent damage to limbs and the brain is also a risk. From dislocated shoulders to severe head injuries, internal bleeding and more, an accident as a driver, passenger or passerby to one of these vehicles can mean a long, costly road to recovery. Many injured individuals lose their ability to work for an extended period of time if not permanently, often leading to loved ones making sacrifices themselves to try and support them as best as possible.
