ATV And Recreational Accidents: No One Plans On Getting Hurt

In Colorado, ATVs aren't just recreational vehicles. Many Colorado residents rely on their ATVs, snowmobiles and other types of off-road motorized vehicles for business and transportation. Unfortunately, many ATV riders don't bother with learning the basic skills required for safe use and many don't carry enough insurance. Also, ATVs share the road with cars. ATV riders are often injured by the negligence of other motorists.

"An automobile umbrella or homeowners umbrella sometimes covers negligence caused by an ATV or underinsured/uninsured damages resulting from an ATV accident. Make sure you understand the coverage limitations and requirements. Be prepared for the hurdles the insurance company will put up." — Attorney Chadwick McGrady.

Dealing With The Insurance Company

Many ATV owners don't carry insurance. People injured because of another's negligence on trails must often file a claim against their own insurance policy to recover the money they need. When coverage is unclear, insurance companies fight hard to deny valid claims. The Law Office of Chadwick McGrady, P.C., has experience you can rely on to deal with the toughest insurance issues.

Suing Someone You Know After An ATV Crash

Often, people are hurt in ATV crashes when a friend or family member is driving. There may be a reluctance to sue for damages against someone you know. It is important to remember that the claim is paid from the insurance policy, not by the individual.
