All-terrain vehicle (ATV) accidents can cause serious injuries that impact a victim for life. Even when operated safely, ATV accidents can occur due to vehicle defects. Riders can suffer catastrophic injuries in accidents, such as broken bones and traumatic brain injuries. These injuries can lead to immense medical bills and pain and suffering.
If you or a loved one has injuries from an ATV accident, contact the Augusta, GA based law firm Nicholson Revell LLP. Our personal injury lawyers can help you recover the compensation you need to move forward.
If you get injured in an ATV accident, someone else may be responsible for your injuries and losses. You may have grounds to file a personal injury claim if negligence, or recklessness, caused your accident. Although you hear them referred to as ATV accidents, most of the time, these collisions are not accidental. They are the direct result of negligence.
In personal injury law, someone is negligent if his or her carelessness causes injury or harm to others. For example, the owner of the ATV may be responsible for an accident if he or she carelessly failed to properly maintain the ATV, resulting in a collision.
In another case, a manufacturing company may be liable if the ATV contained a dangerous defect. You could have a premises liability lawsuit, on the other hand, if a property hazard caused your accident, such as a hidden rock on an ATV trail. It is important to speak to an attorney about who or what caused your ATV accident. A lawyer will explain your legal options.

When you hire an attorney, however, your lawyer will gather the necessary evidence, defend you against these tactics and increase the chances of receiving fair compensation for your injuries and losses. You can focus on healing from your significant injuries while your lawyer handles complicated negotiations or litigation for you.
