Reach out to our law firm to learn more.

Types of UTV/ATV Accidents and Injuries

When a UTV/ATV accident occurs, the injuries to all parties involved may be serious. Types of accidents and subsequent injuries include:

  • Falling off the UTV/ATV: If a person isn’t holding on properly, takes a turn too fast, attempts to stand up, etc., they may fall off the UTV/ATV.
  • Single-vehicle collisions with objects: Improper operation can lead to single-vehicle crashes where the UTV/ATV runs into a stationary object, such as a tree.
  • Multi-vehicle collisions: If two or more UTVs/ATVs are riding in a group, the chance of a multi-vehicle collision exists. These crashes can be especially injurious.
  • Rollover crashes: One of the most serious types of UTV/ATV crash types is that of a rollover crash. A rollover crash may happen when a driver takes a turn too quickly, when two vehicles collide, or when the vehicle trips when traveling downhill. 

These injuries are costly and may cause long-term disabilities and complications.

Who’s Liable for an ATV/UTV Accident?

Determining who should pay for the damages of a victim of a UTV/ATV accident can be complicated, especially if the at-fault party isn’t insured. Typically, the party whose negligence caused the crash is responsible for damages. This is likely the driver. However, other factors may lead to accidents, too, including machine defects/equipment malfunctions, unsafe conditions on a property, and more. When you hire our law firm, we’ll investigate your case and work hard to determine who should be held responsible and how you can recover the compensation you deserve.
