Wintertime as we all know is a time of cold winds falling snow and snow covered terrain. The average vehicle needs snow chains to travel through snow covered roads but these will have trouble with deeper snow covered areas. Snowmobiles which were configured for this type of terrain began in 1916 and you can still find some of these age-old snowmobile vehicles out on the snow covered ground. The antique snowmobile still has a lot to offer in the way of restoration. You also might be amazed at the strength of these old vehicles.
If A Driver Is Responsible If you are involved in a snowmobile accident with another snowmobiler you will want to call a law enforcement officer or patrol officers. A law enforcement officer can write an official accident report that will determine the speeds of the snowmobiles and if either driver was negligent or impaired at the time of the accident. Speed and alcohol or drug impairment are two major factors in snowmobile accidents and their documentation can help you gain the compensation you deserve. If The Snowmobile was Responsible Sometimes accidents occur because a snowmobile was not properly designed.
The throttle system balance or skis may have defects that cause the snowmobile to malfunction leading to an accident. If a defect in the snowmobile was the cause of your accident your attorney will have to undertake a product liability suit in which you file a lawsuit with the manufacturer of the snowmobile for your injuries. If the Property Owner was Responsible At times the property owner may be responsible for your accident due to negligence. For a landowner to be negligent they must have known about a hazard-such as a fallen tree or large rut-and been negligent in their duty to fix the hazard. If you were riding on state land your claim may be even more difficult. Most state and federal lands are exempt from liability in the case of injuries that occur on their property. A personal injury attorney will be able to help you determine if you are able to collect damages.
Take extra care with children on board; go slow and take short trips. Keep children safe by always having another adult ride with you (2 adults 2 snowmobiles 1-2 children). The American Academy of Pediatrics recommends that children under age 16 not operate snowmobiles and that children under age 6 never ride on snowmobiles. When children do ride make sure they are aware of snowmobile safety rules even for a quick trip around the property. Check the weather and trail reports before you go. Avoid riding on ice-covered lakes and rivers. Underwater currents and blankets of snow can both create and conceal thin ice. Stay on designated snowmobile trails and dont venture off.
