Potential Compensation in a Marion ATV Accident Case
ATV accidents can be just as severe as car accidents. According to Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) data, ATV accident injuries can include fractures and abrasions to the head, neck, and upper extremities. Some severe injuries prove fatal.
You deserve fair compensation to help you access the treatment you need after an ATV accident. Our lawyers can seek the following types of damages:
- Current and ongoing medical bills
- Pain and suffering
- Lost income, including missed bonuses, benefits, and paid time off
- Reduced earning capacity if you can no longer earn your pre-injury income
- Loss of quality of life
- In-home aid if you can no longer perform daily activities due to your injuries
- Home modifications
Our Marion ATV Accident Lawyers Can Help if You Lost a Loved One
If you lost a loved one to fatal ATV accident injuries, our Marion wrongful death lawyers can seek justice for your family. Though nothing can replace a loved one, your family deserves compensation that can help them in your loved one’s absence. We can seek awards to cover the following:
- Funeral and burial or cremation services
- Your loved one’s pain and suffering
- Their end-of-life medical bills
- The income they contributed to the household
While you grieve in peace with your family members, our wrongful death attorneys can handle the legal process.
Seek Medical Attention After an ATV Accident
You should seek medical attention immediately after an ATV accident. You never know if you have injuries with latent symptoms, and only a doctor can properly diagnose and treat your injuries. Follow through with your doctor’s orders and make it a point to go to every appointment.
If you delay or forgo medical treatment, your injuries may worsen. An insurance adjuster could also claim you contributed to your injuries. Protect your health and your case by seeing medical care promptly.
Factors That Can Complicate a Marion ATV Accident Case
ATVs pose unique dangers to drivers and passengers because they lack full coverage yet can travel at high speeds. This lack of protection can make such types of accident cases difficult. Furthermore, ATVs are not legal to drive on public roads in Ohio, according to Ohio Revised Code Section 4519.41. If your ATV accident occurred on private property, this could further complicate the case.
After an ATV accident, you are going to want to heal, not deal with these complications when filing a personal injury claim. Our Marion legal team understands the types of issues that arise in ATV accident cases. We can address the complications and work to hold the liable parties accountable for your injuries.
Potentially Liable Parties in an ATV Accident
Your accident could be the result of one party’s negligent actions, but in some instances, there may be multiple liable parties. Our personal injury attorneys can investigate your accident and hold each liable party accountable for their portion of the fault.
Potentially liable parties in your accident could include:
- The operator of the ATV if driver error caused the accident
- The owner of the ATV, possibly through vicarious liability
- The owner of the property that you operated the ATV on at the time of the accident if hazardous conditions contributed to the accident
- The manufacturer of a defective ATV or a part on the ATV
- Another driver or third party
We can gather evidence of negligence and build a case for fair compensation while you heal from your injuries. Call us today to find out how we can help you and your family recover.

We Can Help You Meet the Deadline for Filing an ATV Accident Lawsuit
When we take on your case, we’ll try to resolve your case by negotiating a fair settlement agreement with the insurance companies involved, but we always prepare to take your case to trial. Either way, it’s important to keep the statute of limitations in mind.
According to Ohio Revised Code Section 2305.10, the court generally gives claimants two years to file a personal injury lawsuit. Under Ohio Revised Code Section 2125.02, it generally gives families the same amount of time to file a wrongful death lawsuit.
Our law firm can work to meet these deadlines to prevent you from losing the right to legal action. We can keep an eye on the deadline while we negotiate with an insurer and work to streamline the process as much as possible.
