Snowmobile Accidents


In General

Snowmobile cases can be difficult, and they always require extensive investigation to identify eyewitnesses and evaluate the physical evidence.  There may be significant legal issues - does No Fault insurance medical insurance apply; what was the right of way; who owned the at fault snowmobile; are there insurance policy exclusions to worry about?  Generally, there is a three-year statute of limitations for these cases, although there are exceptions.


Snowmobile passenger suffers foot and ankle injuries: $200,000 settlement

A speeding snowmobile slid around a corner and hit our client’s sled.  Client’s foot and ankle were badly broken.  The insurance company tried to deny insurance coverage, but was forced to cover the damages.


Snowmobiler strikes parked vehicle at night: $86,000 settlement

The key to this case was our expert analysis of the snowmobile headlight.   We proved scientifically that the headlight had been “on” at the time of impact, proving that the snowmobiler was obeying the law but the truck was concealed by snowbanks.




* These cases are chosen from many more, to illustrate some of the variety of the issues we have dealt with.
