The Complexities Of Recreational Vehicle Accidents Require Experienced Attorneys

Recreational vehicles come in many forms — ATVs, snowmobiles, campers, boats, Jet Skis, inner tubes, and more. While these are incredibly fun, injuries from them can be devastating — even fatal. It is imperative to have an attorney who is experienced in representing persons injured from these types of accidents.

Very often, there are issues of what insurance coverage applies, liability, comparative negligence, conflict of laws from different states, and laws with respect to immunities and local regulations. These cases require the experienced, skillful attorneys at Kaiser Hafezi Law who have successfully handled these battles for decades.

Some common causes of these accidents include:

  • Inexperience of user
  • Badly maintained routes/trails
  • Impaired operators
  • Lack of or inadequate training of rider/user
  • Inattentive or distracted operation

Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)

Q: I was the one operating the recreational vehicle, and I was injured. Wouldn't that be my fault?

A: It could be partially your fault, but the injuries may also be the fault of others, such as mechanical failure or a dangerous trail or road. Early investigation is key, which is why you don't want to wait to call an attorney. Evidence could be lost if time goes by.

Q: I was injured in a lake. What do I do?

A: Seek medical attention, and then do your best to document what happened, including noting witnesses and taking photographs. Contact Kaiser Hafezi Law immediately. Navigating (no pun intended) the ins and outs of boating, Jet Ski, or other water accidents is complex. There are different rules that apply to water than land. There may be insurance coverage issues, and liability is sometimes difficult to determine.

If an injury occurred, it is important to contact an experienced lawyer immediately so that evidence can be preserved and cooperation be established with local authorities like DNR, sheriffs, rangers, Coast Guard, etc.
