ATVs (All Terrain Vehicles) are fun to ride. Even if you proceed with caution out on the trails, it is important to understand that ATVs are prone to rollover accidents. An ATV rollover accident can cause serious injury and even death. Even though you may not realize it, a high rate of speed is not necessary for a head injury, or another type of ATV injury, to occur. Riding at a moderate rate of speed can result in TBI, a spinal cord injury, and other catastrophic and permanent impairment. In the event of a rollover, a rider can be thrown, pinned, or even crushed due to the weight of the ATV. The ATV Accident Lawyers at the Strom Law Firm are experienced in ATV accident cases.

ATV accidents are often complex legal cases. It is difficult to determine who is responsible. For example, the owner may be responsible, but if you were riding on a trail that was not properly maintained, the person or organization that owns the trail may be liable. In those cases, you may need to file a lawsuit to bring in the land owner’s insurance company that provides insurance for the property owner, or if they do not have insurance, against the property owner personally. Finally, you may have a defective product liability case if the ATV itself was defective or unsafe. You need an experienced personal injury lawyer.
