ATV Accidents Lawyer in Orlando

Recreational vehicles – known as ATVs or all-terrain vehicles, quads and four wheelers – are extremely popular in Florida. Our state offers hundreds of miles of rural trails, sandy beaches and off-road parks and courses ideal for riding. ATVs also play an important role in Florida’s farm and ranch operations and industrial on-premises purposes.

With ATV use on the rise, so are injuries to the people who use them. Each year, ATV rollovers, collisions and accidents where victims are thrown off the vehicle lead to severe or fatal injuries, and tragically involve both children and adults. The Consumer Product Safety Association has reported 11,688 ATV-related deaths between 1982 and 2011. In 2011 alone, there were 327 recorded ATV fatalities.

Despite these sobering statistics, manufacturers have continued to make ATVs bigger and faster.

Dealing with ATV-Related Injuries

Injuries common to ATV accidents include head, neck and spinal cord injuries, traumatic brain injuries, fractured bones and crush injuries, paralysis, amputations and internal organ damage.

ATV Rollovers, Flip overs and Collisions

ATVs are dangerously deceptive. They are inherently unstable due to their narrow track and high center of gravity. The main causes of accidents on ATVs and four-wheelers include:

  • Rollovers and flip overs
  • Collisions
  • Alcohol or drug consumption
  • Vehicles being unable to properly grip paved surfaces
  • Children being unable to control adult-sized ATVs
  • Crashing on unfamiliar terrain
  • Faulty vehicle design

Who Is Responsible for ATV Accidents?

While rider error can lead to accidents, many times the causes of injury are the result of negligence on the part of another driver or other third party. Accidents are also frequently caused by design flaws, manufacturer defects and mechanical failures of the vehicle. ATV recalls due to risk of injury and loss of control have included prominent manufacturers including Suzuki, Yamaha, Honda and Polaris.

Determining who is responsible can be complicated, as the cause is often not initially clear. Our attorneys will launch a thorough investigation to identify possible liability, establish the events that led to the accident, examine the ATV’s maintenance records, investigate the wreckage at the accident scene, as well as research police reports and eye-witness statements.

  • If the ATV accident was caused by a defective vehicle, the manufacturer or seller of the ATV may be liable for injuries caused by a defective product.
  • Property owners of ATV trails or off-road parks may be held responsible if the terrain was dangerous due to pits, holes, inclines, slants, or other hazardous conditions.
  • If the injured party was a passenger, the driver of the ATV may be held responsible for negligent or unsafe driving.
  • The owner of the ATV may be held liable for allowing someone to operate a poorly maintained vehicle, or authorizing an inexperienced or under aged person to drive the ATV.

Kramer Law has the experience and resources necessary to investigate and resolve your case. Regardless of who is at fault, if someone else is responsible for your injuries, we will uncover the truth and protect your rights.
