Sacramento ATV Accident Attorneys
Compensation for Those Hurt in All Terain Vehicle Crashes
All Terrain Vehicles (ATVs) have become increasingly popular for adults
and children. While ATVs can be a fun pastime, they still carry risks
that normal automobiles do not. Serious injuries and even deaths have
occurred due to ATV rollover accidents. Many of the causes of ATV crashes
are due to operator error and the dangerous design, which causes instability
when operating at high speeds. Children in particular can suffer from
permanent injuries such as
brain injuries, and more.
Risks involved in riding an ATV:
- ATVs are usually not meant for passengers.
- ATVs flip over more easily than regular automobiles.
- ATVs can travel up to 75 mi/hr
- ATVs can weigh up to 800 pounds.
personal injury attorneys at The Law Office of Michael R. Loewen can review your accident
and help you seek compensation from the liable party. Whether it may be
the owner of the ATV, owner of the property, the manufacturer of the defective
part, or all of the above. We aggressively pursue fair compensation on
behalf of our clients.
Determining Liability in ATV Accidents
ATVs and Off-Highway Vehicles (OHVs) are required to follow the rules of
the road, but they also have special laws which are only applicable to
ATVs and OHVs. In general, the same rules apply to operating an ATV as
to operating an automobile: people are required to use reasonable care.
However, several other factors may come into play in an ATV lawsuit, including:
- How old was the driver?
- Was the ATV operated on road or off road?
- Did the ATV driver have insurance?
- Was the accident on a public road or a private road?
