Toronto ATV Accidents Lawyer
All-terrain vehicles (ATVs) are a popular mode of transport for work as well as play. Farmers, ranchers, and laborers commonly use ATVs to travel around their land, and adults and children alike recreationally ride ATVs in rural and unpopulated areas. Although these vehicles are an excellent combination of convenience and fun, they are also inherently dangerous and frequently cause severe injury. Such vehicles travel at high speeds and are prone to flipping and rolling over. This risk is particularly threatening when there is more than one person on an ATV, as is commonly the case.
The lack of rules surrounding ATV travel has given way to unregulated use of the vehicle. Many people are unaware that ATVs should not have more than one person on them at a time and they are not designed for use on paved roads. What’s more, while teenagers and adolescents commonly operate them, ATVs are generally unsafe for people under eighteen years old. All of these factors make it easy for injury in an ATV accident to occur. If you were in an ATV accident, the legal team at Mazin & Associates, PC understands these injuries are just as serious as those sustained in automobile and motorcycle accidents are. In fact, many injuries sustained in these accidents are traumatic brain injuries and other permanent impairments. It may be difficult to cope with right now, but our ATV accident lawyers are committed to providing excellent representation to secure every amount of restitution possible for victims of ATV accidents.
Common ATV Injuries
Road defects, a faulty mechanism in the vehicle, or driver error can all cause an ATV accident. Riders are often thrown off or pinned down under the weight of the ATV, and the vehicle’s lack of safety features exacerbates the risk of injury. Common ATV injuries include:
• Head injuries
• Facial injuries
• Traumatic brain injuries
• Neck injuries
• Fractures and broken bones
• Spinal cord injuries
Determining who is liable for an ATV accident is complicated, especially if a defective part within the ATV was the reason for the accident. Obtaining compensation for your injuries can be a confusing process, but our resourceful legal team can guide you through every step.
