All Terrain Vehicle Accidents in Indianapolis

Car accidents come in all shapes and sizes. Riding an ATV provides people with a fun and unique sense of independence and the ability to go places a regular motor vehicle can’t. However, that unique experience comes at the cost of an increased risk of serious injuries including brain injuries, disfigurement, and even death.

Injuries suffered in an ATV accident can be severely life-altering for both the injured party and his/her family. At Emerson Divorce and Accident Injury Attorneys we recognize that your immediate goals are to get your medical bills paid.

Our experienced ATV attorneys will explain the options available to you, and work with insurance companies involved in your case to assure that your needs will be resolved appropriately.

Indianapolis ATV Accident Frequently Asked Questions

Act Immediately

If you have been injured in an ATV accident, Indiana law only allows you two years from the date of the accident to file a lawsuit. Your failure to do so may permanently bar you from pursuing your case. That is one of the reasons it is vital to contact an attorney as soon as reasonably possible

Why do ATV accidents lead to more serious injuries?

It is pretty clear that the passenger cabin of a car offers substantially more protection than ATV riders. Cars are more stable, and offer seat belts, airbags, and additional structural protections. ATV riders, on the other hand, wear protective clothing and a helmet to protect themselves from ATV accident injuries.

Are there restrictions on who can sue for ATV accident injuries and ATV accident death?

Victims of ATV accidents in Indiana, both the operator and/or passenger, can seek to recover for a personal injury accident due to the negligence of another.

Is there an ATV accident statute of limitations in Indiana?

Yes. Generally, a claim must be filed with the court within two years of the accident. If a government agency is involved the time to file a claim is much, much shorter. Contact an ATV accident attorney to discuss the facts of your particular case.

Another driver hit my ATV and didn’t stop. Can I file a claim with my insurance carrier?

While not a common scenario, the quick answer is probably. But it will depend on your insurance policy and uninsured motorist coverage. Contact the accident attorneys at Emerson Divorce and Accident Injury Attorneys to review your insurance policy for coverage of your damages from the accident.

Do I really need to hire an ATV accident Attorney?

Insurance companies are in business to minimize paid claims and maximize profits. The insurance company will have experts representing their interests related to your accident. It is in your best interest to have someone to represent your best interest as well. An attorney will investigate the accident, document your injuries, and negotiate on your behalf. Most ATV accident lawyers will meet with you and discuss the merits of your case at no charge. We highly suggest you contact an ATV accident lawyer as soon as reasonably possible.
