If I’m Injured In A Snowmobile Accident, Will The Defendant Have Insurance?

in NY Insurance Issues

There are many public snowmobile trails in the areas surrounding Buffalo.  Unfortunately, not all of the users of these trails act responsibly when snowmobiling, which leads to personal injury accidents.  As a result, New York State has specific rules requiring that snowmobiles operated on public property be insured.  This includes snowmobiles operated on any part of a roadway or shoulder of a highway.

Under the New York State Parks law, snowmobilers are required to carry liability coverage in the minimum amount of $10,000 for any accident involving one person, $20,000 for accidents involving two or more people, and $5,000 in coverage for any property damage from one accident.

Snowmobilers are required to carry proof of insurance and must display it on request of any magistrate, law enforcement officer, or any individual who has sustained a personal injury or suffered property damage as a result of the snowmobiler’s actions.
