Serious injuries and accidents often result through no fault of the injured party, yet the injured victim suffers from life altering physical, mental and financial losses. Such economic and human losses can have devastating financial consequences on individuals and families if not properly compensated. Tort law allows those individuals to seek just legal recourse through ATV injury lawsuits.
Any kind of negligence by a company that causes injury or harm can lead to filing a product liability lawsuit. The amount a plaintiff is entitled to depends on several factors, particularly how egregious the act and how serious the injury.
Personal injury attorneys generally only will take cases on a confidential and contingency fee basis, which means your lawyer will only get paid if he or she is able to reach a settlement or positive verdict. The Lyon Firm will review your case for free and assess what compensation any plaintiff can expect through litigation.
Personal Injury cases can range from minor auto accidents to complex lawsuits filed against large corporations. The Lyon Firm has handled both with equal care.
Polaris has issued several recalls over the years for unsafe ROV, ATV and UTV models. To check which models have been recalled lately, check their Website.
You may not be aware that your ATV or ROV is defective. It is not always obvious when your throttle or safety component fails to function as intended. It can take an expert in auto engineering to determine what contributed to an accident or injury.
You can contact The Lyon Firm, and we will work diligently to review your ATV accident case. If an ATV defect was in part responsible for an ATV injury, a lawsuit can be filed and a large settlement is likely.
If negligent manufacturers are directly responsible for an ATV-related injury, a product liability and personal injury lawsuit may be filed and compensation may be recovered for accident victims. Plaintiffs may seek compensation that may include property damages, past and future medical expenses, lost wages and future earnings, and pain and suffering.
The Lyon Firm takes pride in representing consumers and holding negligent ATV manufacturers accountable for defects that lead to accidents and injuries.
In recent years, the most common ATV defects have been defective throttles, leaking fuel lines, faulty roll cages, harnesses, brakes and fire hazards.
Due to rollover and fire hazards, some RZR models and other Polaris ATV and ROVs have been recalled for injury risks.
The Lyon Firm aggressively, professionally, and passionately advocates for injured individuals and families against negligent individuals or companies to obtain just compensation under the law.
