Common ATV Uses

Many people love the feelings of being outdoors with the wind and elements hitting them in the face as they ride there ATVs through numerous settings and over multitude of terrains. Outdoor sports enthusiasts use them when they are hunting, fishing, ice fishing, boating, and trapping. Because of their strength, fuel efficiency and other valuable qualities, ATVs have become commonly used in agriculture, forestry, search and rescue, landscaping, law enforcement and in construction, as well as in industries not mentioned here.

ATV Dangers

While ATVs can be fun, practical and useful in many different ways, they can also be dangerous. It is important to always wear a helmet and fully protective safety gear when riding an ATV.

While wearing a helmet has been (statistically) proven to save lives in the event of an ATV accident, serious and even deadly injuries can happen to the most skilled and experienced riders.

One of the things that makes ATV accidents dangerous is that an ATV does not have a sturdy and protective structure around it the way a car or truck does. It does not matter whether there were other vehicles involved in an ATV accident for it to cause serious injuries.

Common Reasons for Compensation and Liability

When someone is injured in an ATV accident, they and/or their family may be entitled to compensation. For help in understanding whether an ATV accident caused injuries that warrant a personal injury claim, a good place to start is by contacting the automobile accident lawyer Washington DC trusts. Common reasons that people seek compensation through a personal injury claim for an ATV accident include:

Negligence When a person is injured because of someone else’s negligent, reckless or
malicious actions (or inaction) the person who caused the accident or situation that
resulted the person’s injury, may be liable for costs related to the accident.This could be
another ATV operator, pedestrian, or automobile operator, etc. If a passenger is injured
because of an ATV operator’s negligence, or reckless or malicious actions, heor she
made be held liable for the victim’s injuries.

Premise Liability When a person is injured while riding an ATV on someone else’s property and an unsafe condition on the property caused the accident, the property owner, and in some cases a renter or property manager, may be held responsible for compensating the injured person. In this context, “property” can refer to public lands such as trails in national forests or recreation and wilderness areas.

Property Liability If an ATV owner knowingly did not warn someone that the ATV they are letting them ride has not been properly maintained and the rider is injured because of this, the owner of the vehicle could be held liable. This can be a friend or someone who rents or leases ATVs as a business.

Faulty or Malfunctioning Product When a faulty or malfunctioning ATV causes a consumer to be injured, the designers, engineers, manufacturers, distributors and in some cases, the sellers of the ATV, may be responsible for compensating the injured person.

To say that I am happy with the outcome of my case is the understatement of the century! Jill Stanley is a BEAST at what she does. That is the only way to explain it. She takes no prisoners. She and her team are very skilled and knowledgeable. I am so happy I trusted them to do their job and rolled with Jill's suggestions. I would choose Jill again 100 times. She settled my case for more than I imagined I would receive. I was literally in tears. It is the best feeling to know my pain isn't for naught. Wayne Cohen and Kristopher Yorke were nothing short of amazing. They have the patience of saints. I'm 100% certain that I got on their last nerves with my frustration and tears at every other call I had with them. Being in pain and wanting to just be able to heal was all I could focus on, but they helped me realize that I also had to focus on the bigger picture (the case) so I could put this piece behind me. As a high-strung individual with anxiety, it was hard for me to not worry and let them do their jobs, but they reassured me all of the time that they had this. To be injured before the start of the pandemic and have to receive regular, weekly treatment while others are able to stay home is anxiety inducing. I was in pain, I was anxious, and I was just hoping it all worked out. It more than worked out. I hope Jill, Siri, and Kris know how much their hard work and "hanging in there" meant to me. I am eternally grateful. I can't recommend you all enough. If you choose this law firm, you won't be sorry!

I had a great experience with the team at Cohen & Cohen. From my intake attorney, Adam, to the paralegal, Bryan, who worked with me regularly for months to document and prepare my case, to Jill, the attorney who secured my settlement, I feel fortunate to have had their representation and expertise on my side.
