Although snowmobile riding may be exhilarating and entertaining, it is a sad fact that death and serious bodily injury is not an uncommon result of snowmobile accidents.
In Ontario, victims of snowmobile accidents and their family members can claim both accident benefits from their own insurer in addition to damages from the person who caused their injuries by way of Tort Claim. Normally, any compensation from the at-fault party will come from their insurance company if insured at the time of the incident.
Similar to an automobile accident, your insurer is obligated to pay no-fault accident benefits for medical rehabilitation, lost income, housekeeping, and attendant care. There are time limits which govern the right of victims to recover the aforementioned damages.
