Snowmobiles are amazingly versatile vehicles that can get people and supplies over areas that cannot be reached with typical vehicles in the winter. They are also fun for recreational purposes. However, we know that these vehicles can weigh up to 600 pounds or more and can travel at speeds of over 90 miles per hour, with the potential for a high speed wreck, especially under the influence of alcohol, causing serious injuries or wrongful death.
When snowmobiling we want you to consider that for a moment, along with the fact that a snowmobile rider has little to no protection in the event of a crash, there is no metal frame surrounding snowmobile drivers or riders. Even if a rider is wearing a helmet, it is not uncommon for us to see the following injuries as a result of a snowmobile crash:
Each of these snowmobile accident injuries requires immediate medical attention that may be hard to get to due to the circumstances and areas that a crash occurs. Injured snowmobile riders often have to wait hours to receive proper medical care which only compounds the injury severity. Snowmobile accident victims will inevitably incur major medical expenses as well as other hidden accident costs (lost income, emotional and psychological damage, etc.).
Finding solid statistics on snowmobile crashes is difficult because almost every snowmobile crash happens off-road and out of the regular police reporting requirements for traffic crashes. Some common causes of snowmobile crashes that end in personal injury include:
