Here at the Charles Boyk Law Offices, LLC, our Delta, Ohio snowmobile accident attorneys have represented clients that have been injured in recreational activities, including snowmobile accidents. Snowmobiling is an excellent recreational sport, especially in Ohio. Although snowmobiling is great fun for many people, the accidents associated with snowmobiling are much too common. Oftentimes, these accidents can result in serious and even tragic injuries.
Some of the injuries associated with snowmobile accidents are traumatic brain injuries, spinal cord injuries, knee injuries, and serious bone fractures. In the most extreme cases, they can even result n death, which in turn gives rise to a Delta wrongful death case.
There are many factors that can cause a snowmobile accident. These factors include the negligence of a driver that causes injuries to a passenger, another snowmobiler, or an innocent bystander. Unfortunately, intoxication is a major cause in many accidents. Another common cause are dangers on the snowmobile trails by property owners, such as chain link fences that stretch across the trail which can cause serious injuries to riders.
Drivers who have caused the accident can be held accountable for monetary damages if they were negligent in the operation of their snowmobile or if they were under the influence at the time. Property owners are held responsible when they are aware that snowmobile riders use their property and they also have known dangers on the property.
