Have you been injured in an ATV crash in Pennsylvania?

All-terrain vehicles, also sometimes referred to as four-wheelers, come with a lot of risks and dangers. They are usually driven by recreational enthusiasts on pavement, off-dirt courses, roadways and country roads.

When an ATV accident occurs and it results in personal injuries or death, the accident is not always the ATV driver's fault. For example, sometimes, another person or business can be held liable for negligence or unlawful behavior that caused the accident. Some of the more common causes of an ATV crash for the purpose of civil liability claims include premises liability, lack of supervision, traffic violations and product liability.

In the case of premises liability ATV crashes, sometimes a property owner may have neglected to maintain an off-dirt course or a roadway on his or her property. In other situations, if a child was driving the ATV at the time of the crash, an adult might be liable for lack of appropriate supervision of a minor.

If the ATV accident happened on a public highway or road, another driver who is shown to have caused the crash might have been speeding, driving under the influence or failed to stop at a traffic signal device. In these cases, the unlawful driver could be financially liable for the death and/or injuries resulting from the collision he or she caused.

Finally, an ATV crash might be caused by manufacturing defects, in which case, the manufacturer might be liable for damages relating to injuries suffered. Defective steering, stuck accelerators and defective brakes are some of the most common accident-causing manufacturing defects found in ATVs.

If you or your family member suffered injury or death in an ATV, four-wheeler, quad-bike or three-wheeler accident, the incident might give rise to a viable personal injury or wrongful death action. Through the successful pursuit of such a case, Pennsylvania residents can obtain valuable restitution to help them pay for their medical care and other damages stemming from the crash. Family members might also be able to obtain money to pay for end of life expenses, lost family income, pain and suffering and other damages.
