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. We always provide a free initial consultation.
