. ATVs and Defective Product Design
Some snowmobiles and ATVs have known design defects. For example, the most recent defective ATV to be recalled from the market is the Yamaha Rhino. This particular ATV had a litany of problems. Design failures contributed to instability, allowing the vehicle to rollover. An inadequate restraint system allowed riders to be flung from the ATV. And an inadequate roll bar sometimes collapsed under pressure.
If equipment failure or a design defect contributed to an ATV injury, you can seek compensation from the manufacturer in a product liability case.
Another cause of ATV and snowmobile accidents — negligent operation — can result in serious injuries or fatalities, particularly if one rider strikes another. In negligent operation cases, the injured person may be able to recover financial compensation under a homeowners’ insurance policy. Our attorneys will carefully examine every possible source of financial recovery to help our clients pay their medical bills and get their lives back on track.
Trust Johnston | Martineau, P.L.L.P. to secure the compensation to which you are entitled after a recreational injury or fatal accident.
