Toronto ATV Accident Lawyer

Any motor vehicle accident can be traumatic. However, if you have been in an accident involving a sports vehicle such as a snowmobile, motorcycle, ATV, electric bike, or moped, your injuries may be more severe and life-changing. All too often there is either insufficient or no insurance coverage for these types of claims. Because many sports vehicles are used outside the city, at high speeds, and may not be enclosed, you may be at greater risk of severe injuries, especially to the head and back. You may also be farther away from the kind of emergency medical care that is needed after a traumatic accident.Injuries common in recreational vehicle accidents include:

  • Broken bones and sprains, especially of the joints
  • Psychological effects such as depression and post-traumatic stress disorder (“PTSD”)
  • Spinal cord injuries, up to and including paralysis
  • Brain injuries, especially if you have no helmet
  • Fatal injuries

These accidents also often happen off-road or on roads that are not properly maintained resulting in what is called an occupiers liability claim. This means that there may be issues of municipal or private land owner liability, especially if you are injured in an area that has been declared usable for recreational purposes, but has not been properly maintained. There may also be liability issues concerning your vehicle if it was improperly manufactured or maintained.

Unfortunately, sometimes sports vehicle accidents are fatal. If you have lost a family member in such an accident, our lawyers can help you determine economic compensation and connect you to professionals who can help your family through your loss.
