Common Causes of Snowmobile Accidents in Michigan 

In winter, snowmobile accidents in Michigan happen quite often, unfortunately. In fact, in just 2019, there were 132 snowmobile accidents in Michigan, which included 8 deaths. The Department of Natural Resources maintains a record of snowmobile crashes and deaths. 

Some common causes of these accidents are: 

  • Excessive speed in the snow
  • Snowmobile driver alcohol impairment 
  • Manufacturing defects of the snowmobile or parts
  • Improper maintenance of the snowmobile
  • Poorly maintained or marked trails on the property
  • Bad weather conditions

Often, it is discovered that these snowmobile incidents could have been avoided if safety precautions had been taken by the party at fault. This includes riders who are injured due to driver or operator recklessness, such as driving at high speeds in the snow. 

That’s why you need an experienced firm that would go the distance for you. An attorney can help prove the validity of your claim. Our Michigan snowmobile accident attorneys have the expertise to investigate and gather evidence to support your snowmobile accident case. Speak with the attorneys at Mike Morse Law Firm today!

Types of Injuries From Snowmobile Accidents

Sometimes a Michigan snowmobile accident can result in immediate life-changing injuries for riders and others. In other cases, snowmobile crashes may not initially appear serious. However, injuries might appear weeks or months later and can progressively become worse over time. Common snowmobile injuries include the following.

Traumatic brain injury (TBI)  

Traumatic brain injuries occur in various forms. Some brain injuries are internal, whereas others can be penetrating through the skull. These types of injuries include hemorrhages and concussions, both of which require rapid medical attention as potentially life-threatening conditions.

Spinal cord injury (SCI) 

Any degree of spinal cord injury is serious, especially since the spinal cord helps the brain control various functions of the body. SCI Injuries can be mild or severe. The results of a SCI can be loss of motion, a weakening of the muscles, and even paralysis. Sadly, sometimes, the paralysis cannot be reversed.   

Loss of limbs  

Sometimes in snowmobile crashes, limbs can get crushed, shattered, or trapped under the vehicle, perhaps leading to amputation. Losing a limb is definitely a life-changing and devastating experience. Some injuries may heal with time, but the loss of a limb is permanent.  

Broken bones 

Victims of snowmobile accidents can suffer fractures to bones externally and internally. Bones in the legs, pelvic area, ribs, arms, and shoulders, can be broken after a snowmobile accident. Although it may not be life-threatening, a fracture or break can be very painful, may require surgery, and could take a while to heal.   

Internal injuries 

Snowmobile accidents can cause damage to organs such as the liver, kidneys, lungs, spleen, and heart. Internal bones could be broken from the impact and puncture a vital organ. Internal bleeding can occur in various areas of the body, which can be life-threatening. 

Wrongful death 

Sadly, on occasion, a snowmobile accident causes the death of an innocent victim. The loss of a loved one can cause an incredible amount of pain and suffering to a family. But when that loss occurs unexpectedly and due to someone else’s negligence for safety procedures, the trauma may be further compounded. 

This list, of course, is not exhaustive. There are several other injuries that can result from negligence while riding a snowmobile in Michigan. An experienced Michigan snowmobile accident lawyer with Mike Morse Law Firm can help you during this tough time to get the money you need. Having an attorney in your corner really can make all the difference.

Types of Compensation You May Be Entitled To Receive

If you or your loved one has been injured in a snowmobile crash – remember that you have rights. You don’t have to suffer in silence for someone else’s negligence in safety procedures. The law states that you have the right to be compensated for your personal injury and losses.  

Compensation for loss and damages may include:

  • Present and future medical expenses
  • Present and future lost income
  • Household renovation for disability
  • Pain and emotional suffering
  • Lost enjoyment of life
  • Compensation for wrongful death
