Riding dirt-bikes, quads, and other off-highway, all-terrain vehicles (ATVs) is an activity that is enjoyed by many people throughout the province. ATVs have both practical and recreational purposes, offering high-speed modes of transportation in rural and wooded areas. However, safely riding an ATV takes experience and caution. The negligent operation of these high-powered off-highway vehicles can cause sudden, impactful ATV accidents.
ATV accidents are among the leading causes of injuries throughout the entire process. In Alberta, these traumatic events are responsible for approximately 6000 injury-related hospitalizations each year. Many of these accidents involve vehicle rollovers, collisions with stationary objects, driver ejections, and other calamities that only impact the rider of the ATV.
However, many ATV riders sustain injuries as the result of another off-highway vehicle operator’s negligence. Examples of negligence that can lead to serious, injury-causing ATV accidents include:
Recovering from injuries sustained in ATV accidents can be a long, complicated, and expensive process. Many injured ATV accident survivors require lengthy periods of physical rehabilitation, costly medical treatments, and even dramatic adjustments to their overall lifestyles.
If an ATV rider’s negligence leads to an injury-causing accident, the at-fault driver’s insurance policy should cover the costs associated with their injuries. However, insurance companies often dispute the claims of injured ATV accident victims.
Even though Albertans make up only about 12% of the country’s total population, residents of this province own approximately one quarter of all off-highway vehicles in Canada. ATV riding is a local pastime that is enjoyed by many, and the people who take part in it should expect to receive fair treatment if they are ever involved in an accident while operating their off-highway vehicle, especially if another party was at-fault.
