Minnesota ATV Accident Lawyer
All Terrain Vehicles (ATVs) are owned by a lot of Minnesotans, as well as individuals who simply come to the state to enjoy the outdoors. They hit the trails, they get dirty, and they simply enjoy themselves. Unfortunately, these vehicles are also very dangerous and can result in very serious injury or even death when an accident occurs. When that accident is the result of someone else’s negligence, it becomes even more devastating.
If you have been injured in an ATV accident or a loved one has been injured or killed due to someone else’s negligence, you may have a personal injury claim against them. With the help and guidance of an experienced Mankato personal injury attorney, you can take the appropriate action so that the compensation you need and deserve can be recovered for medical expenses, lost wages, and other applicable expenses.
Effective Personal Injury Representation
ATVs can climb steep and rough terrain and they can do so at high speeds. They do not offer much protection against rollovers and other types of accidents. The majority of the protection comes in the way of helmets and protective clothing. Because the wheel-base is narrow, the odds of rollover are increased.
Rollover is common and the ATV typically lands on top of another person. Nonetheless, it also tends to be the result of negligence, which is why many passengers are injured or killed. Mechanical defects are also why accidents occur. If the ATV malfunctions mechanically and it is due to a manufacturing defect, then the manufacturer could be held liable for the accident. If the accident is due to a collision, then the other driver could be held liable if that collision was due to their negligence.
