Houston ATV Accident Attorney

When the thrill of an all-terrain vehicle (ATV) ride takes a disastrous turn, the aftermath can be daunting and life-altering.

What Distinguishes ATV Accidents From Other Motor Vehicle Accidents?

ATV AccidentATV accidents bear a unique set of challenges compared to other motor vehicle accidents. While a source of recreation, this activity possesses inherent risks that outnumber that of motorized vehicles. This is mainly due to the ATV’s design and the nature of its use.

Unlike cars and trucks, many ATVs offer little protection to riders, increasing the likelihood of serious injuries. Additionally, these incidents often occur in off-road areas, far from immediate medical assistance.

Moreover, identifying the responsible party (or parties) following an ATV accident is not always straightforward. Some common causes may be due to the following:

  • Driver’s negligence (not obeying the rules of the road, reckless driving, driving under the influence of drugs and/or drunk driving);
  • A defective ATV part that may put a manufacturer at fault;
  • A property owner’s failure to warn about hazardous conditions (if the accident occurred on private property or a terrain designed for recreation use).

At Simmons & Fletcher, we have a strong understanding of Texas ATV laws and extensive experience in handling ATV accidents. Wielding steadfast compassion and dedication to advocating diligently on behalf of our clients, we are committed to building a compelling case for those who are left most vulnerable following such crashes.

What Are Common Injuries Following ATV Accidents?

ATV accidents can result in a wide range of injuries, some of which may be minor to severe or even life-threatening. These may include:

  • Brain and head injuries, including traumatic brain injuries (TBIs) often due to riders not wearing a helmet;
  • Broken bones including the arms, legs, ribs, and or sternum fracture due to ejection and impact with the ground following a collision;
  • Spinal cord injuries, which in serious cases, can lead to paralysis;
  • Facial disfigurement and lacerations from impact;
  • Soft tissue injuries, including sprains and tears;
  • And internal injuries to organs from the force of the collision.

In addition to these injuries which may be debilitating for all potential parties involved, other long-term effects may manifest themselves to hinder the full recovery of victims. This may include post-traumatic stress order, as well as depression. Additionally, the burden of significant medical costs, loss of income, and a considerable amount of pain and suffering may contribute to additional emotional distress.
