With 500,000 ATVs Registered in Minnesota, a growing number of people are hurt in ATV accidents. In Minnesota, ATV ownership has grown ten-fold over what it was in 1990 and it’s tripled since the start of the new millennium.
ATV vehicles are owned and enjoyed by a lot of people in Minnesota as well as by tourists who come here to enjoy our outdoor life. But these vehicles are also quite dangerous and can result in extremely serious injuries and even death when an accident occurs. When that accident happens because of someone else’s negligence, it is even more devastating. If you or a family member has been injured or killed in an ATV accident due to the negligence of someone else, you may be able to pursue a personal injury or wrongful death claim.
An experienced ATV personal injury lawyer at Sieben Edmunds Miller in Minnesota will help you recover medical expenses, lost salary or wages, pain and suffering, the loss of companionship in the event of a death, and other expenses.
ATV Accidents Turn Fun into Pain or Even Death
ATVs are fun because they can go through rough terrain, dense forests and climb steep hills. But they don’t provide much protection against rollovers and other kinds of accidents. Most of the protection comes from rollover bars or protective clothing and helmets. And because they have a narrow wheelbase, the odds of a rollover can be significant.
Unfortunately, when an ATV rolls over or is involved in a collision, the ATV can land on top of the rider or a passenger or can cause other significant injury or even death. Sadly, ATV accidents often occur due to negligence. In a rollover or other ATV accident, others may be liable for negligently causing the injury or death.
Mechanical defects are another leading cause of ATV accidents. If the ATV has a mechanical malfunction as a result of a defect in manufacturing, then the maker could be held liable.
