ATV Accidents

What is an ATV accident lawyer?

Built for the most rugged conditions, ATVs promise thrill and a sure way to maneuver through any terrain, from farms to the open road. While they open the door to exploration, ATV accidents are also much more catastrophic.

Our lawyers at Zayouna Law Firm understand both the appeal and practical uses of ATVs. But we also know that riding through nature comes with many risks, resulting in ATV injuries alarmingly on the rise — faster than any other type of vehicle. We can help you seek answers and compensation for the devastating effects of an ATV accident.

File an ATV Accident Claim

From physical trauma to lasting impairment and financial burden, an ATV accident has devastating consequences — ones you should not have to suffer. An ATV accident entitles you to accident benefits, with the potential to seek justice and compensation from those responsible for your accident.

ATV Insurance Accident Benefits

In Ontario, ATVs are insured similarly to other motor vehicles, which is necessary to ride outside your private property. This entitles you to no-fault accident benefits from your insurance provider. These cover your medical costs, pain and suffering, and lost income.

But insurance providers rarely make it easy to claim these benefits, often disputing, delaying, minimizing, or denying valid claims. Even when claims are successful, the benefit amount is rarely enough to ease your pain and suffering.

Tort Claim for ATV Accidents

Did another person’s negligence cause your accident? Sharing trails with reckless, speeding, intoxicated, distracted drivers or riding a defective ATV can be deadly. You should not have to endure the fatal, life-altering consequences of a serious ATV accident caused by negligent drivers or manufacturers.

Rollover crashes are some of the most serious ATV accidents, causing fractures and even paraplegia or quadriplegia. A tort claim allows you to seek damages for these severe physical, emotional, and financial impacts:

  • Medical and rehabilitation expenses
  • Loss of income and future earning capacity
  • Disability care and accommodations
  • Loss of guidance or care in case of wrongful death
  • Pain and suffering.

Cause for ATV Accident Claims

Riding an ATV is fun and exciting — and generally safe, with proper precautions. When you ride within the speed limit, wear a helmet, and follow all the rules of the road, there shouldn’t be anything that stops you from exploring the outdoors. Combined with the rough terrain and rugged conditions, even the safest riders are no match for negligent drivers or defective ATVs.

Common ATV Accidents

  • Wipe-outs
  • Flipping or rolling over
  • Crash and collisions
  • Riding on paved roads
  • Riding with passengers
  • Allowing children to ride, despite lacking physical strength, motor skills, and cognitive abilities required to safely maneuver the ATV.

Common ATV Accident Injuries

  • Fractures to the knees, lower legs, ankles, and feet
  • Fractures to the arms and shoulders
  • Fractures to the ribs
  • Head injuries, ranging from cuts and bruises to traumatic brain injuries
  • Injuries to the back and spinal cord, at worst, causing partial or full paralysis
  • Damage to the internal organs and internal bleeding.

An ATV accident claim provides you and your loved ones the support you need to navigate the devastating effects of an accident, injuries, and even lifelong trauma. Compensation from at-fault parties can provide for your care and quality of life after an accident, offering relief from the physical, emotional, and financial burden.

ATV Accident FAQs

The Off-Road Vehicles Act considers these vehicles as ATVs:

  • A dune buggy
  • An ATV with no more than three wheels with handlebars for steering and a driver’s seat
  • An ATV with four wheels, handlebars for steering, and a driver’s seat, designed for utility applications such as farming.

It is in your best interest to speak with a personal injury lawyer right away. A lawyer experienced in ATV accidents can establish the facts of the accident and determine the compensation you are entitled to, both from insurance providers and the at-fault party. They can help you file a claim as soon as possible to mitigate your losses and suffering, and ensure your claim is filed within the statute of limitations or the allowable legal period.

Similar to riding other motor vehicles, ATV drivers must:

  • Obey the speed limit
  • Never drive under the influence of alcohol or drugs
  • Wear a helmet
  • Carry the appropriate ATV insurance
  • Never ride with passengers
  • Tow trailers securely
  • Ensure clear views from all angles.
