Sometimes a day of fun can turn tragic. When an accident happens on a recreational vehicle (RV) or all-terrain vehicle (ATV), the injuries can be very serious.
In many instances, ATV accidents occur because people are not given proper instructions and warnings. Most people injured in ATV accidents are children and first-time riders who go too fast on rough terrain. When an ATV tips over, there is little or no protection for riders and passengers. As a result, people suffer spinal cord injuries, head injuries, severed limbs or death.
How to handle accidents on recreational vehicles
At Friedman, Domiano & Smith, we represent people who have been injured in ATVs and RVs. We also represent people injured on:
- Golf carts
- Motor homes
- Travel trailers
- Jet skis
- Wave runners
- Other motor craft, including Sea-Doos.
RECREATIONAL VEHICLE ACCIDENTS
Many RV accidents occur because the driver has not been formally trained to operate the vehicle. While drivers are not required to obtain a commercial driver’s license (CDL), they do have a responsibility to uphold the rules of the road. When they do not follow these rules, our lawyers hold them accountable for the harm they cause.
