Serious Injuries In A Michigan ATV Accident?
Many Michigan residents have four-wheelers for hunting, chores or recreation. While ATV design has come a long way, they are still dangerous machines, especially when combined with alcohol, inexperience or risky behavior. The injuries from ATV accidents are often severe or fatal, requiring skilled legal representation to cover the losses.
The Ypsilanti lawyers of Bredell & Bredell handle select recreational accidents involving four-wheelers, dirt bikes, utility tractors and other all-terrain vehicles. There is no cost to have us evaluate your possible claims for ATV-related injuries.
Accidents Involving Four-Wheelers And ATVs
In many ATV accidents, there is no party to sue — operator error, end of story. While four-wheelers are difficult to steer and prone to flipping or rolling, lawsuits against ATV manufacturers are extremely difficult to win unless the machine itself failed.
Yet there are some instances in which third parties may be liable for injuries:
- Another ATV operator who negligently crashed into you
- An intoxicated or reckless operator who caused injuries to a passenger
- An adult who negligently entrusted an ATV to an underage youth
- A collision with a car or truck at a road crossing
- Safety hazards in ditches, trails or public right-of-way
