We Have Recovered Hundreds Of Millions Of Dollars

All-Terrain Vehicle Accidents In Arizona

Nothing beats riding through the wide outdoors on an all-terrain vehicle. ATVs are popular among outdoor enthusiasts of all ages. Families frequently bring ATVs along on their camping trips to get from here to there on unpaved paths. ATVs are not just for fun. Many of Arizona’s ranchers and farmers rely on ATVs as work vehicles on unimproved roads.

All-terrain vehicles can be dangerous because riders are generally not protected by adequate gear and are frequently riding through treacherous, unmarked trails. If you or a loved one has injuries following an ATV accident, contact our aggressive lawyers at Law Badgers PLLC for legal advocacy. You may have a right to file a claim for compensation for medical costs, pain and suffering, and other damages, but proving negligence in all-terrain vehicle injuries can be difficult.

Insurance companies frequently balk at providing coverage even for injuries resulting in permanent disabilities. Establishing fault requires identifying the party who was negligent and showing that they owed a duty of care. The next hurdle is showing the negligent party was in violation of that duty of care and that violation was the reason for your injuries and suffering. You will need to provide detailed evidence such as medical records of your harm. Our legal team will fight for optimal compensation so you can focus on healing. We have helped recover hundreds of millions of dollars for our clients.

Common Causes Of ATV Injuries

While a driver’s license is required to operate an ATV on Arizona’s highways and roads, and some Bureau of Land Management (BLM) and U.S. Forest Service maintained roads, unlicensed teenagers are frequent users and may not have adequate training or strength to handle the vehicle; they may take the vehicle on paved surfaces where the vehicle does not handle the same as on unpaved surfaces.

ATV accident injuries crushing the driver resulting in broken bones, severe lacerations, head injuries, internal injuries and even death can occur when:

  • The vehicle flips over
  • Sliding on mud, dirt, gravel or sand
  • Riders are thrown off the vehicle
  • Crashes into an animal
  • Collides with other unexpected vehicles in their pathway

Whether you use your ATV for off-road recreation or business purposes, it is important to keep the vehicle in top condition at all times.

Was Your Injury Due To Manufacturing Defects?

Even the most skilled ATV driver may run into trouble if the vehicle does not perform up to the standards the manufacture said it would. Defective machinery claims arise under products liability laws. This means you may have a right to file a claim against the manufacturer for your injuries if it proven that your injuries are due to defects in the ATV such as:

  • Defective electrical system
  • Nonworking bearings
  • Problems with fuel and air intake lines
  • Instructions for use were not included
  • Safety indicators were missing
  • The handlebar and control malfunctions
  • Braking failures

If you believe your ATV accident was because the vehicle was defective in some way, our attorneys can help.
