What Are the Dangers of an ATV Rollover?

The design and structure of ATVs make them top-heavy, meaning that the engine and mechanical components are higher off the grown than most vehicles. When they crash, they are more likely to tip over and potentially pin a rider against the ground. This can lead to:

Rollovers are more likely to occur on sloped terrain with passengers, which can lead to serious trauma for multiple individuals. Backward rollovers also occur more frequently with passengers on board because the weight of the vehicle is improperly distributed.

Causes of ATV Accidents

While ATVs are more prone to rollovers than most other accidents, a key element in these events is negligence. Improper riding, like traveling up a steep hill too quickly or sharp turns, can certainly cause an accident, but the negligence of other riders, ATV rental companies, and manufacturers also play a huge factor. Rollover crashes caused by negligence can occur due to:

  • Improper design, such as poor weight distribution or suspension
  • Defective or under-inflated tires
  • Faulty accelerators and brake systems
  • Poorly maintained trails that combine dirt and paved roads
  • Lack of safety information or warnings
  • Other reckless riders or passenger vehicle drivers who crash into ATVs

Who Can Be Held Liable?

Depending on the cause of your ATV accident, several parties may be liable. Ultimately, your case may come down to a personal injury claim or a product liability claim. A personal injury claim means that an individual who was required to provide a duty of care failed to do so through negligence and caused your injuries. In contrast, a product liability claim means a manufacturer or retailer rented or sold you a product that had a defective design, was improperly marketed, or lacked safety warnings, ultimately leading to your injuries.

In an ATV case, the liable party can include:

  • Other riders who drive recklessly
  • A reckless driver who collided with your ATV
  • A property owner who left a hazard on their trail
  • A rental company who leased a defective ATV
  • A part’s manufacturer who sold defective ATV components, such as faulty tires
  • A mechanic who failed to properly repair an ATV
  • A manufacturer who failed to test an ATV for defects or failed to issue a recall

At the end of the day, to hold the responsible parties accountable, you will need a skilled and experienced attorney by your side.
