While off-road vehicles are popular, like motorcycles they lack the structural protection to minimize injuries in the event of an accident. Safety advancements have come a long way, but operating a snowmobile or ATV remains a dangerous activity, and accidents often result in serious injuries.
How an injury claim works when you have been injured on an off-road vehicle
If you have insurance, you may be entitled to Accident Benefits (also called no-fault benefits) to recover certain medical expenses, income losses and other expenses. It’s possible to apply for these benefits yourself, but it can quickly become complicated, and benefits may be denied.
If you were not at fault for the accident, you may also bring a claim against the at-fault driver to recover compensation for pain and suffering, additional past and future income losses, housekeeping expenses, etc. The purpose of this claim is to restore an injured person, to the extent monetarily possible, to the position they were in before the accident. Family members may also bring a claim for “loss of guidance, care and companionship.”
