As the temperature drops and snow begins to fall, many Michigan residents begin to take interest in new recreational activities such as snowmobiling. Taking a brisk ride during a cool winter day on a snowmobile can be an exhilarating experience. Flying through the snow and carving up trails at high speeds can be anyone’s exciting winter getaway. While understanding that snowmobiles are fun to ride in Michigan, just like Jet Skis or motorcycles are during the summer, snowmobiles can be very dangerous and can lead to serious injury. A Michigan snowmobile accident lawyer at Moss & Colella can help you or a loved one if they were injured in a Michigan snowmobile accident.
Each year on average around 25 and 45 snowmobile accidents result in a death. Many snowmobile accidents leave victims with serious personal injuries such as broken bones, bruises, severe cuts, concussions, or even worse. These forms of accidents can leave victims with lost wages due to time away from work and expensive medical bills.
For Michigan residents, it is imperative to understand that accidents involving a snowmobile and a car can provide no-fault benefits for the operator of the snowmobile, even if the operator of the snowmobile is at fault for the accident. Michigan snowmobile no-fault benefits can include lifetime medical expense coverage for injuries related to the accident, three years of lost wages, as well as other expenses that were incurred due to the accident. However, victims of snowmobile accidents that do not involve a motor vehicle are limited to making a claim for medical expenses only from their own private health care insurance company. Wage loss and other damages may be claimed against a third party, i.e., another snowmobile operator or property owner, where there is evidence of negligence.
In Michigan, snowmobile accidents can occur from a variety of circumstances. Most commonly, snowmobile accidents are caused by operator error sometimes due to traveling at a rate of speed greater than is reasonable and proper under the conditions (See MCL 324.82126). In cases involving a single operator accident, it is critical to investigate the property where the accident took place. Often times, latent or concealed property defects can result in serious injuries. If so, a premises liability claim may be advanced against the property owner. These claims are covered by homeowner or commercial liability insurance. If an accident is the result of a mechanical or equipment defect, a product liability claim may be advanced against the snowmobile manufacturer. In cases involving another snowmobile or motor vehicle operator, general negligence claims may be advanced against the operator. For these cases, in order to prove negligence, it must be shown that the duty of care that was due from one person to another was not met. These “third-party” negligence claims are covered in most cases by the insurance carrier for the automobile or snowmobile operator.
