Charleston ATV Accident Lawyer
Riding an ATV, or a quad, for recreation can end in devastation if an accident happens. Even if you are operating the vehicle responsibly, defective parts, mechanical failures or improperly maintained trails can lead to accidents causing grave injury, paralysis, permanent brain damage or death.
Filing a claim cannot undo what happened to you or your child, but it can help the entire family move forward and heal.
At the Bell Law Firm, our Charleston ATV accident attorney can help you and your family recover the compensation you may be eligible to receive.
Common Types of ATV Accidents
Collisions and rollovers are two of the most common types of four-wheeler accidents. The heavy, awkward stance of the vehicle means that its weight can do serious damage to the human body if the rider breaks its fall in a crash.
If a manufacturer’s error, such as faulty breaks or steering, contributed to the accident, you may have a claim for damages. A flawed design or negligence during the manufacturing process can make it nearly impossible to avoid a collision or rollover accident.
In some cases, substandard trails that have not undergone regular required maintenance could be the cause of an accident, and the owner of the property may be liable.
Injuries from ATV Accidents
Devastating injuries often result from ATV crashes. While a person of any age can be hurt in a quad accident, children are sometimes very seriously harmed in these accidents. These young victims run the greatest risk of suffering severe bodily injury.
Injuries associated with ATV collisions include:
- Broken bones
- Facial injuries
- Head trauma
- Internal organ damage
- Spinal cord injuries
- Traumatic brain injury (TBI)
Tragically, many people have lost their lives in ATV accidents. If someone you care about was killed, permanently disabled, or injured in a crash because of a vehicle defect or the recklessness of another person, you have the right to file a claim for damages.

ATV accidents can be complicated. If the accident happened on a trail that was badly damaged, the entity that is liable for the accident could be very different than if the accident resulted from a defective ATV part.
An experienced personal injury attorney at The Bell Law Firm can investigate the accident and help you take action against the negligent party to recover what you deserve.
