According to the National Electronic Injury Surveillance System of the United States Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) reported no decline in injuries from snowmobile accident during the past 10 years. However, snowmobiles are to blame for nearly 200 deaths and 14,000 injuries each year. Of these crashes, 56 percent of them involve a collision with a fixed object, compared to 44 percent involving a non-fixed object.
In 2014-15, Michigan had reported fifteen fatal crashes that involved hitting a fixed object such as a tree, pole, fire hydrant or ditch. In addition, one incident occurred with a non-fixed object such as a motor vehicle, pedestrian, or animal that was fatal. The snowmobile injury lawyers at Buckfire & Buckfire, P.C. realize the difficulties families face with a family member having injuries that resulted from a snowmobile accident. Often times, snowmobile injuries result in traumatic brain injuries leading to the major cause of death in snowmobile accidents giving rise to a Michigan Wrongful Death lawsuit.
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. As a result, it is important to practice proper snowmobile safety to further prevent such incidences from happening.
