Injured in an ATV Accident?
You may be entitled to significant compensation.
An All-Terrain Vehicle or “ATV” is commonly defined as an off-road, three- or four-wheeled vehicle that is used both for recreational and work-related purposes. ATVs are commonly enjoyed in outdoor settings and many enthusiasts ride these vehicles as a means of getting away from it all and escaping from the hustle and bustle of everyday life.
However, while ATVs are used both for fun and for function, it is important to note that these machines can also be very dangerous. Part of this danger is attributed to the fact that manufacturers want to “push the limits” on possible safety regulations and increase the weight, size, and speed of ATVs. It is these changes that are allegedly causing an increase in the amount of ATV rollover accidents that are happening every year.
The lawyers in our nationwide network know that ATV Accidents usually occur when the vehicle rolls over or hits another object and believes the government should be held accountable for instituting proper safety regulations and restrictions as the majority of ATV accidents happen to young adults or children.
ATV death and injury are preventable and the attorneys in our network believe that if greater accountability was promoted throughout the industry and on behalf of the Federal government for ATV safety, fewer people would be hurt and killed every year by way of this product.
Manufacturers see great profit from these vehicles and hence, continue to make them weigh more and run faster, increasing their center of gravity and their risk for rollover. Currently, 75% of victims from ATV accidents suffer a head or spinal cord injury which can result in a lifelong physical problem or life-threatening ailment.

An ATV accident occurs when a person dies, is seriously injured, or has property damaged in an incident with an all-terrain vehicle. ATVs are manufactured within certain size specifications and used for off-road use. They do not exceed 70 inches in width and 1,000 pounds in weight and are now required to have no less than four wheels. In addition, they typically have low-pressure tires for increased traction under challenging conditions.

Any of the following are likely to lead to an ATV accident:
• An improperly seated driver

Reporting the accident to the police is critical.
The next step is to file a report of the accident with the Department of Motor Vehicles. You must file this report within ten days of the accident.
