You May Recover Damages After a Recreational Accident
If you or a family member has been injured in an all-terrain vehicle (ATV) or boating accident, you may be wondering where to turn for help. Despite the inherent dangers of these activities, most people do not think about how they will pay medical bills and other expenses if a serious injury or wrongful death occurs.
At Benninger Law, we represent people injured in all types of vehicle accidents in West Virginia and Pennsylvania, including ATV and watercraft accidents. Our experienced injury lawyers are familiar with the unique aspects of these accidents. We will help you and your family determine how to move forward and recover the damages you need.
ATVs, including three-wheelers and four-wheelers, can cause injuries for many reasons. Vehicle defects and an unstable design have led to recalls of some ATVs. In addition, a collision with another vehicle can result in injuries such as brain injuries, spinal cord injuries, broken bones, amputations, burns and severe road rash.
Boats, Jet Skis and other personal watercraft can provide days of fun on the lakes and rivers, but they can also cause catastrophic or fatal injuries, including brain injuries, spinal cord injuries, fractures, amputations and drowning. Some of the most common reasons for boating accidents are operator error, drug or alcohol use, no life jackets onboard, collision, hitting a swimmer, running aground, capsizing or sinking.
After investigating the accident to determine liability, we will work to hold the negligent party accountable for your losses. You may collect compensation for medical expenses, lost wages, and pain and suffering.
