Ottawa Snowmobile Accident Lawyers
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 lead to substantial harm to a driver, passenger or pedestrian.
At Tierney Stauffer LLP, our expertise in personal injury law paired with years of experience make us an ideal firm for your case. Our lawyers focus on reaching a resolution suited to take care of your long-term needs rather than reaching a quick settlement. Our priority is to ensure each client receives the compensation they need for their future, and not just immediate relief.
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 Potentially Long Road to Recovery from Snowmobile Accident Injuries
The severe impact of a snowmobile accident is influenced by speed and the lack of rider protection. Therefore, a single mishap may result in months of physical 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.
Everyone has rights, and at Tierney Stauffer LLP, we believe in defending yours. We aim to provide thoughtful, dedicated legal guidance based on facts and years of experience in personal injury cases. If you’ve suffered from a snowmobile accident as a result of someone else’s negligence, know that it can get better even in extreme circumstances.
