Before heading out be sure to check the brakes headlights and taillights emergency switch and idle on your snowmobile. Make sure it has enough fuel and battery power and check the machine over thoroughly before you begin your ride. Pack an emergency kit and bring the cell phone and GPS if you have one. Never ride alone. Riding with a friend is not only fun but if things go wrong its good snowmobile safety to have another machine and driver around to help. Being injured and alone is a dangerous situation. Make sure your friends are also driving sober.
If you insist on leaving gas in your engine for more that six months at a time then you need to add a stabilizer to the fuel system so that it will preserve the gasoline and keep it from deteriorating over time. It is probably a good idea to drain your fuel system at the end of the winter before storing your snowmobile for the summer in a protective snowmobile cover. Is the battery dead? The easiest way to check the battery is by turning on the headlights. No lights- no charge in the battery. Have you checked the cylinder head gasket nuts? Locate the cylinder head nuts on top of the engines cylinder block. If they are loose tighten the head nuts with a wrench and then check the gaskets for damage.
Just like a car accident if you were injured in a snowmobile accident you may be eligible for compensation from the at-fault party for your injuries. And if you have lost a loved one in a snowmobile accident that was someone elses fault you may be eligible for a wrongful death suit. But proving liability can be a complicated matter especially in the case of snowmobile accidents that may occur in remote areas and lack witnesses. If you are seeking to file a personal injury claim after a snowmobile accident you should contact a personal injury attorney who will be able to assess your situation and determine if you have a strong case.
If anyone is injured in a snowmobile accident the damages involved will likely be above the statutory maximum for small claims court. As a result plaintiffs injured in a snowmobile accident in which they were not at fault should seek legal representation as soon as possible. Medical bills can add up quickly and the injured party may be entitled to compensation. An experienced attorney can help guide injured plaintiffs through the litigation and ensure that all their rights are respected.
