All-Terrain Vehicle Accident Lawyers In Southern California
All-terrain vehicles (ATVs) are popular for both work and recreation. These vehicles are increasingly becoming standard equipment on farms and ranches and offer weekend riders a rugged thrill when they take them off-road. ATV accidents, however, are not uncommon and can result in serious injuries and deaths. Our San Diego ATV accident attorneys at Martinez & Schill LLP provide skilled representation in lawsuits involving ATVs. They know how to effectively investigate accident claims and build strong cases for financial liability.
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 may 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 other 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. Our attorneys will carefully investigate your accident and determine who is at fault for your injuries or the wrongful death of your loved one. Our experienced San Diego ATV accident lawyers are skilled negotiators and litigators, and they aggressively represent our clients’ rights and interests in and out of court.
Like motorcycle accidents, ATV wrecks can have catastrophic results because ATVs offer little protection in a collision. Consequently, injuries sustained in an ATV accident can include brain injuries, spinal cord injuries/paralysis, internal injuries, broken bones, lacerations and scars, and road rash. ATV accident victims may accrue extensive medical bills and rehabilitative costs as well as lost wages from temporary or permanent disability.
