SNOWMOBILE ACCIDENT INJURY RIGHTS
Now that we finally have some snow and cold, we can get out for some Minnesota winter fun. Snowmobiling is a popular activity for the Rochlin family, and it’s one of the many reasons Minnesota is such a great place to live. However, as personal injury lawyers, we have represented people in a few snowmobile accident injury cases over the years.
One thing many people don’t know is that if you are riding a snowmobile and are injured in an accident with an automobile, you are entitled to automobile no-fault insurance benefits, including medical and wage loss. This insurance comes from your own auto insurance, even though you were riding a snowmobile, or the auto driver’s insurance if you don’t own a car. This means that your medical bills and lost wages will be covered by the no-fault insurance, even if the crash is your fault. Obviously, if the crash is the car driver’s fault, i.e. your snowmobile is hit by a car, you will be entitled to additional compensation as well.
If you or someone you know is injured in a snowmobile accident, either as the driver or passenger on a snowmobile, please call us or contact us through our website. An experienced injury lawyer will provide a free initial consultation to explain the insurance issues and your rights. We have offices in Minneapolis, Edina, and Woodbury where you can meet with an attorney about your snowmobile accident. Our lawyers will also come to your home or meet by Zoom for a consultation after you were injured riding a snowmobile. Our primary focus it to make sure you get the compensation you are entitled to.
