Johns Creek ATV Accident

Johns Creek, GA ATV Accident Attorney – Four Wheeler Injury Law FirmATV Accident Law Office in Cumming, GA

The Law Offices of Casey W. Stevens represent Johns Creek, Georgia area clients in ATV accident claims.

A four-wheeler, “quad”, or ATV can be a useful tool to haul heavy objects where road conditions do not allow for the use of more traditional vehicles, but most are used recreationally for trail riding, hunting, and camping. These vehicles can be dangerous even when they are operated within the manufacturers guidelines, especially when operated by children or teens who are less experienced riders. Their design makes them susceptible to flipping over resulting in serious injuries or death. Studies conducted by the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission have revealed that there are as many as 100,000 emergency room visits each year resulting from ATV-related injuries and 25% of those were for children under 16 years old.

While most ATV accident claims are successfully handled through insurance companies, many victims choose to seek out the services of a personal injury attorney, who can help them reach a settlement with those responsible, or file a lawsuit seeking compensation for their suffering. Auto accident attorneys with experience handling ATV accident lawsuits can thoroughly evaluate your case and help file claims against negligent drivers, manufacturers or technicians. If you or someone that you love has been injured through someone else’s negligence or disregard for your safety, call the Law Offices of Casey W. Stevens for a free case evaluation.

Factors Contributing to ATV Accidents

As with any vehicle accident, there are many factors that can contribute to ATV accidents, but most fall into the two categories of operator behavior and equipment failure. Some common ATV accident causes are:

  • Blown Tires
  • Stuck Accelerators
  • Brake Failure
  • Steering Failure
  • Driving on public roads or in areas not safe for operation
  • Driving in a reckless or dangerous manner
  • Driving under the influence of drugs or alcohol
  • Driving without proper training
  • Hauling a passenger(s) or load beyond manufacturers recommendations
  • Allowing children to operate adult sized ATVs
Common ATV Injuries

When an ATV accident victim falls or is thrown from their vehicle, the results can be serious, often life-threatening injuries, including:

  • Broken bones
  • Soft tissue injuries
  • Major and minor brain trauma
  • Burn injuries
  • Neck injuries
  • Neck injuries
  • Crush injuries
  • Spinal cord damage
  • Amputations
  • Other injuries
When to Call an Attorney

Victims who are harmed because of another person’s negligence or recklessness while operating an ATV are entitled to compensation to finance their medical expenses, and to address their pain and suffering. If you or someone that you love has been injured in an ATV accident, you owe it to yourself to have your case evaluated by an attorney before signing any statements or agreements from the insurance companies. You should contact a personal injury attorney with experience handling ATV cases in Georgia immediately if:

  • The insurance company refuses to fully compensate you for medical expenses, property damage, lost income, psychological pain and/or lost prospects.
  • You are experiencing prolonged delays in settling the claim.
  • Your claim is denied by an insurance company or a government entity.
  • The negligent party is not insured.

Client Reviews
After being involved and a five car accident I contacted Casey Stevens law firm. I was given his number by a fellow coworker at my job who had used him in the past and was very satisfied with his services. The car accident included myself my husband and my son, the accident was determined to be the fault of two drivers involved in the accident. Casey personally came to my home the next day and said down with me and my family at the kitchen table and went over all the events of the accident. There were months and months of physical therapy, doctor visits injections and while my son had to have his mouth wired after having his jaw broke in three places. Casey and his staff worked continuously on our case and after it was all said and done, they where able to get us over $300,000 in damages. I really want to Thank Casey Stevens and his staff for always being available for phone calls and answering any questions I might have. I will continue to recommend potential clients to Casey Stevens law firm. Nina F
