A dirt bike accident often involves a young person, a car or truck, and a sense of tragedy. Some dirt bike accidents occur without contact with any other vehicle. Rather, the dirt bike may hit a fence post or flip over as the rider goes too fast over a hill. In any case, injuries are often severe, and fatalities are not uncommon. If your loved one was killed or injured in a dirt bike accident or scooter accident, you should talk to a personal injury attorney with abundant experience determining liability in recreational vehicle accident cases.
Ohio Personal Injury Lawyers Are Ready To Investigate Your Dirt Bike Accident
The injured person or the family of someone who was killed may be able to collect compensation by bringing a claim against:
- A property owner
- The dirt bike manufacturer
- Someone responsible for supervising a young person who was injured or killed
A property owner may have failed to protect people from potential harm by leaving a dangerous condition uncorrected or unmarked. For example, if the dirt bike crash occurred when the rider hit a hole in the ground that should have been filled in, the property owner may be liable.
If the crash was the result of malfunctioning steering or brakes, or uncontrollable acceleration, a manufacturer may be liable. Review of accident records involving dirt bikes of the same make and model may uncover the likelihood that a product defect was an issue.
