Injury claims in Pennsylvania snowmobile crashes

When Pennsylvania residents climb on top of a snowmobile, they are usually thinking about all the fun times they are about to have. They do not typically think about the potential injuries they could suffer in the event of a snowmobile accident. However, it is vital that everyone consider these very real dangers associated with snowmobiling in order to limit their chances of getting into an accident.

Snowmobiles fly across wintry landscapes at extremely high speeds, meaning that when an accident happens, severe and fatal injuries can result. At Cohen, Feeley, Altemose & Rambo, we have broad litigation experience dealing with injuries from snowmobiles. We are familiar with different snowmobile brands and mechanical issues that can develop if the vehicle is poorly maintained. We also know what makes and models of snowmobiles may have dangerous defects associated with them and what to look for in terms of evidence to prove that a defect caused a given crash.

Unlike cars, snowmobiles are often operated in very rough environments -- the kind where you would ride a dirt bike. Unpaved roads and trails can have a lot of unexpected bumps, turns, potholes, rocks, stones, trees and debris.

Depending where the snowmobile accident occurred, an unmaintained snowmobile trail might be the fault of the property owner, who could be liable for the accident. Snowmobile crashes can also happen as the result of a mechanical error, unmaintained brakes, defective steering or an accelerator that gets stuck. In such cases, a mechanic, the owner of the snowmobile or the snowmobile manufacturer could be liable for accidents that result from the issues.

Still, the best solution to snowmobile dangers is to take the necessary precautions not to get in one in the first place. A pinch of prevention is worth about a million pounds of cure in such cases.
