Snowmobile Accidents in Ontario
Snowmobile accidents occur with alarming frequency in Toronto, and all too often the families of the victims must pay the ultimate price. While the culprit is not always the same, one thing remains consistent: insurance companies are obligated to pay for any damages, pay any fees related to injuries, and provide snowmobile accident compensation due to loss of work or wages. It is important to immediately retain a snowmobile accident lawyer if you are in Toronto because you only have a seven-day window as of the accident date to file a claim with your insurance company and only 30 days to complete the Accident Benefits forms. If the insurance company refuses to pay these fees for any reason, then you need a qualified snowmobile accident attorney on your side to ensure that you get the compensation you deserve.
Common Types of Snowmobile Accidents in Ontario
Here are some of the most common types of snowmobile accidents that occur in Toronto:
Snowmobile Operator Error
This includes mistakes made by the person operating the snowmobile, bad judgment, negligent operating or driving, allegations the driver took dangerous risks.
Under Ontario’s Sales of Goods Act, if there is a proven manufacturer defect, then it may be grounds to take legal action against the manufacturing company, the retailer, or distributor of the snowmobile by filing a products liability claim.
This can either be with another vehicle or with a foreign object. Lawsuits can be pursued in both cases if it can be proven the vehicle operator was being careless, or if it can be proven that the foreign object was improperly disposed of on the snowmobile trail.
