Miami ATV Accidents Attorney
ATV is the abbreviation for “All-terrain vehicles.” ATV’s are typically used for off-road riding. They are three- or four-wheeled motorized vehicles used for recreational and some work-related activities. They should not be driven on highways or main roadways. Accidents involving ATVs can cause serious injuries to people involved.
ATVs are frequently used for fun. However, ATVs are not equipped with seatbelts, airbags or other safety attachments, meaning fun family outings using these recreational vehicles can turn deadly if the ATV is not operated properly. Unfortunately, every year, many people (including children) are severely injured in ATV accidents.
You might have a case against several parties when you are injured on an ATV. If you were injured because of inadequate instruction, you may need to pursue action against the vehicle’s owner or insurance company. If you were the passenger of an ATV and the operator caused the accident and threw you off and you were injured as a result, you might have a case against the ATV operator.
If you were driving the ATV and collided with another vehicle, you might have a case against the driver of the other vehicle if the other driver caused the accident.
If your accident was caused by malfunctioning brakes or tires or your ATV had structural issues with the frame or welding, you may be able to seek compensation from the manufacturer of the ATV.
If you have been injured in an ATV accident, you may be eligible to receive compensation for medical expenses, rehabilitation costs, lost income, and pain and suffering.

Many ATV crashes involve failure to wear helmets. This can cause severe traumatic brain injuries. When operating an ATV, wearing a helmet is safe and advised. There is no law that everyone should wear a helmet to ride an ATV. As such, many people commonly ride ATV’s without wearing helmets.
This Broward County ATV Accident Attorney can help you if you’ve been hurt in an ATV accident while not wearing a helmet. Mr. Quackenbush will do this by hiring an expert called a “biomechanical engineer” to analyze the accident and try to find out if your lack of a helmet contributed to the crash.
In other words, the biomechanical engineer will strive to find out whether your injuries would have been as severe if you were wearing a helmet or if they would have been similar in spite of the helmet use. In many cases, a helmet would not have made any difference in regards to injury severity. For instance, if your brain injury was caused by a blow to the face, then a helmet might have made little difference in lessening or preventing your brain injury.
ATV accidents frequently involve minors. If an adult permits a child to ride an ATV unsupervised and a crash happens, then the injured child might be able to pursue a personal injury case against the adult that permitted the child to ride the ATV unsupervised.
Any settlement must be approved by a judge when a minor pursues a personal injury case. These settlements are often in the form of a “structured settlement,” in which payments are made in regular installments once the child reaches the age of majority.Compensation Achieved by this Miami-Dade County ATV Crash/Wreck Law Firm for Clients
