Who Do I Sue For Personal Injury or Wrongful Death from a Snowmobile Accident in Minnesota?
You may be able to sue a homeowner (homeowner’s insurance covers snowmobiles), a bar or restaurant (if drinking and driving was involved) and/or a manufacturer of a defective part.
Minnesota snowmobile accident lawsuits can involve:
Insurance claims, settlements and litigation;
Defective product law (even if there has not been a recall); and
Premises liability (accident was the fault of a property owner).
If you have been injured in a snowmobile crash that was someone else’s fault, you have the right to be reimbursed for a number of things, including:
Pain and suffering.
How Do I Protect My Legal Rights?
Some people run into trouble because they don’t understand who’s playing on which team. The following tips are meant to help you not jeopardize your case before consulting a lawyer. They are not, however, legal advice. For that, you need to contact our law firm.
Do not speak to the other person’s insurance company and do not give any recorded statements. You are not obligated to do so.
Do not talk to anybody about your case except your doctor, your insurance company and law enforcement officials.
Do not wait to speak with a lawyer. Find an experienced Minnesota snowmobile accident attorney as soon as possible after your snowmobile crash.
Most importantly, do not sign any release forms. We can’t emphasize this enough. If you do not fully understand what the papers are about, do not put your name on them. Once you settle your case, you won’t be able to get anything else.

There may be a lot at stake. This is a situation where experience really counts. A snowmobile accident case may involve complicated product liability issues, meaning something may have been wrong with the snowmobile that caused the accident or made your injuries worse. We recently obtained a $3,750,000 settlement in an accident case where the owner of the vehicle was in a crash prior to being informed of a recall.
