An adult man from Lake Tapps suffered serious injuries after being involved in a snowmobile accident near Cle Elum Thursday afternoon.
According to KOMONews.com, first responders arrived at the scene of a serious injury accident in a remote area near Cle Elum at approximately 1 p.m. Thursday after receiving multiple reports of a snowmobile accident. Sheriff’s deputies said it appeared he had crashed into a tree while riding alone on his 2009 Polaris snowmobile.
The 62-year-old man who was driving the snowmobile was found badly injured at the scene and had to be extricated from the vehicle due to the damage. News reports indicate that the man was not wearing a helmet at the time of the crash.
Medics were able to transport the man via ambulance to a local hospital before he was eventually airlifted to Harborview Medical Center in Seattle.
Liability For Snowmobile Accidents

When it comes to injured victims of snowmobile accidents, the legal process for pursuing a personal injury claim is similar to the process for those injured in a typical motor vehicle collision.
