Detroit All-Terrain Vehicle Defect Lawyers
All-Terrain Vehicles (ATVs) are popular for off-road recreation and outdoor work. They can be useful for getting around areas where there are no roads, such as farms, ranches, or park lands. However, a defective ATV that is prone to rolling over or otherwise malfunctioning puts riders at risk of a serious accident.
If you or someone you love has been hurt in an ATV accident, do not hesitate to contact the Detroit ATV defect attorneys of Ravid & Associates, P.C., at (866) 644-6587 to discuss your legal rights and options.
Causes of ATV Defects
While ATVs can be fun to ride, their design can sometimes make them prone to rolling over. Other problems with the design and manufacturing can lead to similar accidents that leave victims with life-threatening or life-ending injuries. Some of the possible causes of an ATV defect include:
- Unsafe design
- Use of defective or substandard materials
- Manufacturing error
- Mechanical malfunction
- Improper maintenance or repair
- Lack of necessary safety features
Any of these issues can lead to a defective ATV that is unsafe for riding. Unfortunately, in many cases the owners or users do not notice the defect or malfunction until it is too late. If you or someone you love has been hurt in an ATV accident, the manufacturer, designer, or mechanic may be responsible for the dangerous conditions that caused the injury and you may be entitled to compensation for your accident-related costs.
