Hire an Experienced ATV Accident Attorney
After an injury-causing ATV accident, the question is: who is responsible to compensate the injured person? Depending on the facts of the case, there are several possible sources of liability in an ATV-related injury claim:
- A property owner
- An ATV manufacturer
- A motorist or other ATV rider whose actions caused the crash
- The ATV operator, if the injured person is a passenger
Sometimes the only liable party is the ATV operator himself (or herself). In this case, there may be insurance policies that apply: medical insurance or auto insurance, for example. A detailed investigation into a potential injury claim will evaluate any and all potential sources of compensation. Interacting with insurance companies in this type of case is a job for an experienced personal injury attorney with experience challenging denials and delays in pay-out of needed compensation.
A serious or catastrophic injury resulting from an ATV accident may include one or more of the following:
- Traumatic brain injury
- Spinal cord injury
- Bone fractures
- Internal organ injury
Successful preparation of an injury claim will require review of medical records and conversations with doctors who can predict the long-term. After a Michigan ATV accident, lawyer advocacy is likely to play a key role in the injured person’s overall recovery plan.
