Minnesota Snowmobiling Accident Attorneys
Our experienced personal injury attorneys can help after a snowmobiling accident
Every winter, thousands of Minnesotans hit the state's snow-covered trails to enjoy the exhilarating ride only a snowmobile can provide. When the right precautions are taken, snowmobiling can be a safe and fun activity for the entire family. Yet every year snowmobile accidents result in serious injuries and deaths. Many of these accidents are preventable.
The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission estimates that each year about 110 people die while riding snowmobiles and about 13,400 hospital emergency room-treated injuries occur. Snowmobile accident injuries may result from negligent operation by another, dangerous trail conditions or a defective machine.
Our snowmobile accident attorneys have successfully represented clients who were injured or have lost loved ones as a result of snowmobile accidents. One of our clients was seriously injured after driving over construction debris on a snowmobile trail. The construction company and county were found liable. In another case, a snowmobile operator was killed by another driver with a blood alcohol level over the legal limit. Our firm was successful in holding the driver responsible as well as the bar for serving too many drinks to the driver.
Unfortunately, alcohol is a common thread in many of the snowmobile accident cases we see and reinforces the importance of avoiding alcohol before operating a snowmobile. You can also reduce the likelihood of a snowmobile accident by driving at safe speeds and sticking to marked trails.
After a snowmobile accident, you should see a doctor immediately. Even injuries that do not seem severe could turn out to be quite serious. This is especially true of head, neck, and back injuries. In cases of negligence, you are entitled to payment for your health care, property damage, lost wages, and pain and suffering.
