I sustained serious injuries when I Iost control of my snowmobile on a public trail. Do I have a lawsuit?
There are many reasons why snowmobile accidents result. Trails are often too narrow or poorly marked. Equipment may have malfunctioned. Hidden logs, dangling electrical wires, thin ice or low-hanging branches can contribute to a loss of control of a snowmobile. A lawsuit can be brought against a negligent drive, a property owner or manufacturer of the vehicle.
All snowmobile owners must carry a valid permit and maintain insurance coverage on their vehicle. The benefits you can claim are similar to other types of motor vehicle accidents however, often the injuries sustained are often much more serious. Consulting a lawyer early to advise you of your rights offers you the best chance of recovery and compensation.
