What To Do After An ATV Accident

When off-roading in an ATV, no one expects to get into an accident or suffer injuries in the process. Whether a driver hit a dip in the road and the all-terrain vehicle rolled over or the incident involved a multivehicle crash, Rosenthal & Kreeger LLP has the experience to protect your interests and secure your compensation.

The attorneys at our firm understand that most ATVs are used for leisurely and recreational purposes, and many of these vehicles are used for activities such as landscaping, towing and other light work, but they can easily become dangerous, even deadly, if they are not properly designed or if the terrain is not adequately maintained.

Whether your ATV injury is due to defective design, mechanical defect or operator negligence, the lawyers at Rosenthal & Kreeger LLP have the resources to hold the proper parties accountable. Our firm has handled situations ranging from rescue efforts to leisure rides around the yard. Call (916) 774-7200 to discuss your situation with an attorney today. Free consultations are available at our offices in Sacramento and Roseville.

Case Study: The Yamaha Rhino

Defective vehicles can cause devastating accidents. Each year, thousands of people are injured or killed in ATV accidents, many of which involve the Yamaha Rhino. Taking the ATV beyond its basic four-wheel structure and into the realm of side-by-side power vehicle, the Rhino wields the strength of a small dump truck under a golf cart-like exterior.

Because the Rhino is designed with a roll cage, it appears to be safe and protective. Even when riders have used the seat belts and taken all safety precautions, rollovers still occurred in record numbers. Severe injuries often resulted from these incidents, and victims of the poor design of this vehicle were entitled to compensation.

What To Do After An Accident

After an ATV accident, it is important to seek medical help — but before agreeing to anything with the insurance company, contact our office to discuss the situation and assess your options. You may be entitled to compensation, which could cover your medical bills, lost wages, and pain and suffering resulting from your accident.
