A Common Misconception about ATV Accidents
As a recreational activity, it’s often family or friends who are injured in an ATV accident. Many believe that accident victims are not covered by insurance companies or that they are taking money out of the pockets of loved ones. Our experienced ATV accident lawyers know where to find insurance pools and how to handle sensitive claims against family and friends. Successful cases result in victims receiving generous ATV accident settlements for injuries without negatively impacting relationships.
