Ohio newspapers, television stations and other news outlets frequently report on accidental deaths and injuries involving all-terrain vehicles (ATVs). All too often, these Ohio ATV accidents injure and kill our young people. Here are descriptions of a few recent examples of ATV accident casualties in Ohio:
- An 11-year-old girl who died of severe head trauma after an ATV crash near Zanesville. She was reportedly not wearing a helmet.
- An 11-year-old boy who died in a car-ATV accident near Racine.
- A 12-year-old boy who also died in a car-ATV crash near Racine.
- A 24-year-old man who drove his ATV into the path of an oncoming car near Rutland.
- A 49-year-old man who died when his ATV left the road near Gallipolis and overturned.
- Sisters, aged 10 and 5, who were injured in an ATV crash near Sidney.
Ohio Recreational Vehicle Accident Lawyers
If your loved one was killed in a recreational vehicle accident near Columbus or anywhere in Ohio, or if you were injured in an ATV crash, you should have an experienced, accomplished personal injury lawyer review the facts of your case. Was someone negligent? Perhaps a property owner, a supervisor of young people, a motorist or an ATV manufacturer was negligent, thus contributing to or directly causing the ATV ( four-wheeler) crash.
Injuries incurred in ATV accidents tend to be very serious: head injuries, back and neck injuries, and broken bones are common injuries of ATV riders. An injury claim can help you recover compensation to pay medical bills, replace lost wages, and account for pain and suffering.
Do not assume that “there is no one to sue so you do not need to talk to an attorney” after an ATV accident. An investigation can determine who may be liable. Likewise, beware the risks of attempting to deal with insurance companies on your own after an accidental death or injury. It is very likely that a knowledgeable attorney can help you obtain much more compensation, and more readily, than you might be able to do on your own.
