Recreational Vehicle Injuries

Even if you make sure to use the right safety equipment and take steps to be as safe as possible, unexpected accidents can still occur when you use recreational vehicles. Four wheelers, snowmobiles, or other ATVs can flip over due to issues such as hazardous trails, improper maintenance, or vehicle defects. Collisions between ATVs can also be very dangerous, and passengers can suffer serious injuries when riding on a vehicle operated by a driver who is acting recklessly.

Some common injuries that can occur in ATV or snowmobile accidents include traumatic brain injuries, spine injuries, and bone fractures. When a vehicle rolls over, collides with another ATV, or strikes an obstacle, drivers and passengers can be injured by striking the ground, trees, rocks, fences, or other objects or being crushed under a vehicle. These injuries can not only require significant medical treatment, but they may also result in permanent disabilities.

Boating accidents can also lead to serious injuries for boat operators, passengers, or others who are involved. Collisions between boats can occur because a person operates a boat recklessly or while they are intoxicated. The failure of parts on a boat can result in the vessel capsizing, resulting in drowning or other injuries. A person who is swimming, water skiing, or using a smaller vessel such as a kayak can suffer serious injuries or wrongful death if they are struck by a boat.

Who Is Responsible for These Injuries?

In situations where an ATV, snowmobile, or boat accident is caused by someone who was acting recklessly or negligently, this person may be liable for injuries suffered by victims. In other cases, a manufacturer of defective parts, a person or company who rented a vehicle that had not been properly maintained, or a property owner who did not address known hazards that affected ATV users may be found to be responsible for the injuries that occurred as a result of their negligence.
