A man was killed in a snowmobile accident in Lewis County on December 29. According to the Lewis County Sheriff’s Office, the victim of the snowmobile accident that happened in the Town of West Turin, New York, was identified as thirty-two-year-old Jason Norfolk from Jordan, New York. 

The deputies reported that Norfolk was driving a 2021 MXZ TNT 600 snowmobile, and while he was going northbound on North Road, he didn’t negotiate a left-hand curve and hit a tree while exiting the trail.

Norfolk was pronounced dead at the scene.

Lewis County Sheriff’s said that Deputies responded to the snowmobile accident in Lewis County at about 7:44 p.m. on December 29.

The Sheriff’s Office got help from the New York State Police, Constableville Ambulance, Lewis County Search and Rescue, and Sullivan’s Towing.

Snowy, wet, and icy roads are one of the biggest reasons for accidents in the winter months. Speeding and not being able to operate the vehicle in such conditions can be deadly. 

If you were involved in such an accident (no matter if it was a one-vehicle or multiple-vehicle crash) make sure you get help from an attorney. Even though the weather requires even more careful driving, sometimes, the reason behind the accident can be other than that. Your attorney may seek a compensation claim from the manufacturer of the vehicle or the road maintenance service that didn’t clean the snow on time.

There are many possibilities to handle such accidents. It’s important that you get a claim for your injuries and damages. Recovering after an accident may take some time. During this time you’ll have to be absent from work and lose wages while the medical bills are growing.

Free Case Review




  • It was a great pleasure working with you on my lawsuit. You certainly gave 150% of your time and interest in settling my case and for that, I am extremely grateful. Therefore, I want to thank you very much for helping me win my settlement and wish you the very best.


  • I am writing to let you know what an outstanding job George Gridelli did for me in my personal injury lawsuit. His professionalism and expertise were evident at our first metting and he and his paralegal Diane D'Andrea took care of me as if I was a friend and not merely a client. They both went above and beyond for me in so many ways that it would be too numerous to list and I am grateful to have had such an exemplary team represent me. When working with George and watching him in court he personified to me what a lawyer is supposed to be - an honest, extremely compentent man who helped guide me through the legal system. I could not have obtained better representation anywhere else at any price. To me that says a lot abut you and your firm's integrity. Thank you again for representing me and for having such stellar individuals working for you! I will continue to recommend your firm.


  • Cellino Law and more specifically my attorney, Gregory V. Pajak, Managing Attorney, and as a whole the Cellino Law Firm and its organization. This is by far one of the most professional law firms and attorney I have ever engaged with and retained in my 35 years. The level of professionalism goes beyond words, the care and constant engagement with me as the client was touching. I was never ever just treated as simply a CASE with potentially a significant dollar number attached to my file. I was engaged regularly, Tracey (Ass’t) and Greg always made sure to remain constant, as well as consistent in overseeing that my case was handled properly and that it did matter in many ways - ensuring that the end result(s) would be fair and reasonable to my case/injury. The regular follow-up calls were very satisfying, knowing that you’re involved in your case matters significantly AND always. One of my main items to recognize Cellino Law and Gregory is that whenever I called, I was able to get through to speak directly to my Lawyer and he would answer any if not all of my questions in a very professional and genuinely caring manner. I always felt cared for and protected legally and more importantly, I was made feel as a human being that was being cared for and always keeping me abreast of all matters connected to the case. There was never a point I felt let down, on the contrary -the level of service was “STELLAR”. Greg is the consummate professional, a ‘role model’, if you will, for what other attorneys should strive to become when dealing with their clients.


  • We want to send a big "Thank you" from the both of us. We know you both fought for us and did a great job with our case. You did it in a timely manner and we appreciate it.
