All Terrain Vehicles

All-terrain vehicles (ATVs) are typically designed for either entertainment or light duty work in places it would be unreasonable — or impossible — to drive a larger vehicle. Unfortunately, hundreds of accidents each year are attributed to ATV use.

At the Law Offices of Willie D. Powells III and Associates, PLLC, we devote significant time and resources to representing injured Texas clients. We are prepared to represent clients injured while riding four-wheelers, dirt bikes, quads or other recreational vehicles.

There are numerous factors that can lead to ATV accidents, including:

  • Driver error: It is not uncommon for ATV collisions to be caused by a negligent driver. Whether the negligence is caused by drug use, alcohol use or inexperienced drivers.
  • Faulty parts: ATVs are typically ridden hard. Whether a rider experiences tire blowouts, faulty steering or any other defective part, a serious accident can result.
  • Poorly maintained tracks: Riding on a park trail should be a safe experience. Unfortunately, due to poorly maintained tracks, these areas can be dangerous. Fallen trees, deep ruts or overgrown corners can combine to make dangerous environments.

Whether they are being used purely for entertainment or to complete light duty work on a ranch or farm, ATVs can be dangerous to ride. With limited safety features and a frequently open top, these vehicles are subject to high-speed collisions or rollovers. If you, your child or another loved one was injured in an ATV wreck, we encourage you to schedule a free consultation with an attorney at our Houston location.
