Fault in ATV Accident Cases in California
Many ATV accidents are caused by operator error due to inexperience, excessive speed, or other factors. In these cases, there many not be another liable party. Some ATV accidents are not caused by operator error, however. A mechanical problem, such as brake failure or steering malfunction, can cause a serious accident. If so, the ATV manufacturer, dealer, rental company, or another party may be responsible for the accident.
Rollover accidents are also common with ATVs. Rollovers can be caused by a design flaw with the machine or a mechanical failure of some kind. In many cases, ATV manufacturers are aware of rollover hazards with their vehicles and do not take the necessary steps to remedy the problem or inform users.
