ATV Accident and Motorbike Accident Lawyer
All Terrain Vehicles (ATV) and motorbikes can be an enjoyable recreational activity in the right setting and when safety measures are followed but an enjoyable fun experience can quickly turn into a tragedy in certain situations.
ATV accidents and motorbike accidents caused by negligence can occur in a variety of different ways:
- By fault of another driver;
- By fault of the ATV or motorbike manufacturer;
- By fault of the owner of the property.
If injured in a motorbike accident or an ATV accident the consequences are often more serious than that of a car accident because there is nothing protecting the ATV driver or motorbike driver from being thrown or from having the ATV or motorbike fall on them during a crash. Common ATV injuries and motorbike injuries range from broken legs to broken collarbones to severe head trauma.
In situations where more than one ATV driver or more than one motorbike driver are involved or in cases where some other type of vehicle is involved who is at fault for the accident will need to be established. If you were injured by a negligent driver in an ATV accident or a motorbike accident you may be entitled to compensation for your injuries.
Some motorbike and ATV accidents can occur even when there is only one driver on the course or at the area the vehicle is being used at. One cause for an accident to occur when there is no one else there is if the ATV or motorbike manufacturer is at fault. If the manufacturer of the ATV or motorbike makes the product incorrectly it could be unsafe and could cause an accident to occur or injuries to occur such as burn injuries. If it is determined that the manufacturer is at fault for your ATV injuries or your motorbike injuries you may be entitled to compensation for your injuries.
ATV and motorbike riders sometimes ride in private areas that are specifically for riding off road vehicles. In these situations it is up to the property owner to care for the property properly and to make sure there are no dangers present. If the owner fails to do so they may be held liable because of premises liability in which case you may be entitled to compensation.
