Let our Tulsa attorneys help you with your all-terrain vehicle accident case
Originally designed for ranchers, search and rescue workers and other professionals who regularly perform off-road work, all-terrain vehicles (ATVs) have become increasingly popular recreational options for people of all ages. However, due to the inexperience of many riders, these vehicles cause many accidents across Oklahoma, with young people under the age of 16 often the victims. At Stipe Law Firm, our attorneys have experience with all types of ATV-related accident cases, including those that involve defective parts and design flaws.

No matter how old you are, ATVs are dangerous pieces of equipment that often have design flaws that allow hands, feet and other body parts to be crushed or dragged under the vehicle. When a crash does occur, there are few safety mechanisms that prevent serious injury, and rollovers are common. For inexperienced riders, even a minor crash can have serious, long-term effects.
Defective parts cause many ATV accidents
All-terrain vehicles are known for having defective parts that force the rider to lose control and roll over, sometimes even resulting in fire or an explosion. There are many different parts that can be defective on an ATV, including the brakes, throttle, steering components, transmission and more. As a result, the following injuries can occur:
In the most extreme cases, an ATV accident can even result in a coma or death. Considering this, it’s important to contact a trusted McAlester attorney if you or a loved one is involved in one of these motor vehicle accidents. If a defective product is the cause of an accident involving an ATV, a case may be brought against manufacturers, rental centers, dealerships, ATV drivers or other individuals and organizations that may have been negligent in their actions prior to the accident.
