Motorsport and auto racing accidents are some of the most frequent types of accidents when it comes to sports accidents and injuries. However, injuries related to sports, specifically winter sports are on the rise in Canada.
According to the Canadian Institute for Health Information (CIHI), more than 5,600 Canadians are injured every year from winter sports alone.
Therefore, the statistical rate for motor sport related injuries can be almost as high. Sports such as snowmobiling are considered winter sports. Injuries from these types of sporting accidents can range anywhere from bruises and minor cuts and scrapes to concussions, broken bones, burns, paralysis, loss of limbs and death. While auto racing and winter sports athletes can take precautions with safety equipment and making sure to try and avoid any type of accidents, nothing can be totally prevented. High speeds and trying to pass other vehicles will almost always result in an accident at some time or another. However, the accidents may not be their fault at all.
