ATV & off-road accidents can happen anywhere in Arizona
All-terrain vehicles (ATVs) and off-road vehicles are a popular way to explore Arizona’s wide open spaces. Unfortunately, accidents happen, often when you least expect them. Like motorcycles, ATV riders do not have a car body around them for protection if they have an accident. That’s why it’s important that an ATV is operating properly without any mechanical problems.
Over the years, some ATV models, including the Yamaha Rhino and John Deere Gator, have been the focus of product liability claims against both companies. The claims have centered on both models susceptibility to rollover and other safety concerns. If you believe your ATV or off-road vehicle has a manufacturer’s defect, contact Israel & Gerity, PLLC today. We’re ready to discuss the wide variety of legal options available to you.
