Snowmobiling is a popular activity enjoyed by more than 2 million North American's every year but like any activity, it comes with serious risks. Whether snowmobiles are being used for pleasure or for work, snowmobile accidents are all too common. Frequently these accidents occur because of excess speed, driver inexperience, driving under the influence of alcohol or poor judgment. Sometimes snowmobile accidents are caused by negligence on the part of a trail owner or manufacturer. Regardless of the cause, snowmobile accidents often result in serious injuries including broken bones, traumatic brain injuries, back and spinal cord injuries and sometimes, death. For the individuals involved, and for their families, the experience is painful, overwhelming, and anxiety producing.
Before you hop on your sled, be sure that you know the rules and regulations about driving a snowmobile - as well as what is required for insurance.
