Have you been hurt in an ATV/UTV accident?
While All Terrain Vehicles (ATVs) can be be great fun for the whole family, the damages caused in an accident often result in serious, permanent injuries—or even death.
Quick, sporty vehicles don’t offer as much protection as a typical car or truck. This lack of safety mechanisms can lead to serious injuries such as brain trauma, damage to the spinal cord, or other permanent impairments.
Who is liable in an ATV/UTV accident?
Depending on your situation, there may be multiple parties liable for your accident—a reckless or negligent driver, an owner who improperly maintained the ATV/UTV, or a property owner who failed to establish a safe driving area.
Do I have a claim?
If you believe you have a claim against another party after an ATV/UTV accident, consider the following:
- Was the other party operating an ATV carelessly or at an unsafe speed?
- Was the other party operating an ATV under the influence of drugs or alcohol?
- Were you or a loved one hurt because proper safety equipment wasn’t provided?
- Were you or a loved one hurt because the vehicle or riding surface hadn’t been properly maintained?
If any of these are true, you may have a claim.
When should you call an attorney?
Right away. It can be difficult to prove fault after an ATV/UTV accident, so it’s important to speak with an attorney at the outset of the accident to preserve the evidence of negligence and establish the damages caused by the ATV/UTV.
