In rural areas, operating ATVs for recreation and transportation is very common. In recent years, there has been an increase in the number of registered off-road vehicles including all terrain vehicles (ATV), also known as four-wheelers, and snowmobiles. Similar to motorcycle accidents, ATVs lack structural protection to riders in the event of a crash. As a result, ATV and snowmobile accident victims often sustain very serious injuries, including:

Common causes of snowmobile and ATV accidents include:

  • Forms of premises liability such as hidden hazards, falling through ice, poorly maintained trails, etc
  • Use of drug or alcohol while driving
  • Defective repairs on machinery
  • Negligent operation and/or reckless driving

WE CAN GET YOU THE HELP YOU NEED

What is often overlooked by riders is that ATVs require insurance like any other automobiles under Ontario law. Therefore, if you were injured in a snowmobile or ATV accident, you may be entitled to no-fault accident benefits, just as if you were injured in a car or other motor vehicle. These benefits include:
