When an ATV operator, rider, or bystander suffers injuries, they need the help of a trusted motor vehicle accident lawyer to help them receive compensation for their injuries.
No matter your exact situation, if you were injured in an ATV accident you have the right to pursue legal action against those responsible.
Defective ATVs and Equipment
Sometimes ATV accidents occur because of defective ATVs or their component parts. The Consumer Product Safety Commission routinely issues product recalls of all-terrain vehicles because of product defects that can cause vehicle malfunctions, fires, and substantial injuries.
Over the years, defects in almost every type of ATV component have been known to cause injuries:
ATV safety equipment, like helmets, has also been subject to product recalls for known defects.
