Often times, passengers on snowmobiles are victims in snowmobile accidents resulting from the drivers’ negligence. Snowmobiles are a popular winter sport, especially in Michigan where we get a lot of snow. According to research, modern snowmobiles can weigh in excess of 600 pounds and travel at speeds exceeding 90 miles per hour.
According to research, children younger than 16 years of age are often times passengers that are injured or killed when they fell from their snowmobiles, had the vehicle roll over them, or the driver crashed the snowmobile into another snowmobile, vehicle or stationary object. In addition, intoxication is a major cause in many accidents. Another common cause are dangers on the snowmobile trails by property owners, such as chain link fences that stretch across the trail and cause serious injuries to the driver and their passenger.
