All-terrain vehicles — ATVs — are used throughout Arizona for recreation. Most ATV riders are safe and take great care to avoid accident and injury – either to themselves or others. Because most ATV riders expect a day of fun, it can be especially devastating when an ATV accident causes serious or even fatal injuries. If you have been injured in an all-terrain vehicle accident due to another’s negligence or faulty equipment and design, the Phoenix ATV accident lawyers at Begam Marks & Traulsen, P.A. can help.
Proving Liability in Accidents
When ATV accidents occur resulting in serious injury or even death, it’s important to understand the cause or causes of the accident, and to determine who may be liable. In many instances, more than one person or entity may be at fault. Potentially liable parties can include:
- One or more other drivers
- Those manufacturing and/or selling the ATV, if there were design defects
- Anyone who may have altered the design of the ATV to make it more dangerous
- The manufacturers of helmets, if the helmets did not provide proper protection
- The owners or lessees of property where the ATV accident occurred
