Kingwood ATV Accidents Attorney


Damages Claims in West Virginia ATV and Off-Road Accidents

Whether your all-terrain vehicle (ATV) accident took place in a recreational setting or while getting to remote land for work purposes, the trial lawyers of Estep & Shaffer can advise you about your legal rights and guide you through the process of recovering the damages you need.

In many cases, we can develop the leverage against a negligent defendant and its insurer to settle the case on fair terms without going to court. Sometimes, however, we need to take your case to trial in order to protect its full value. To learn more about your options and an evaluation of your case, contact us in Kingwood for a free consultation.

Unlike other motor vehicle crashes involving private autos or commercial trucks, an ATV accident is likely to look more like a product liability lawsuit than a traffic accident case. Our investigation will often show that the manufacturer or distributor failed to eliminate design defects or warn of the injuries that could result from operation under certain conditions.

We know how to work effectively with industrial design experts to develop the testimony necessary to prove liability in off-road vehicle accident cases. Our experience with dangerous or defective product cases also helps us analyze and attack the opinions of defense experts, who will try to show that there was nothing wrong with the design or manufacture of the vehicle you were riding when you got hurt.

Estep & Shaffer works with people in Preston County, Tucker County and the surrounding areas who need advice about damages claims related to all kinds of sport and utility ATV accidents, including crashes involving:

  • Quad runners
  • 4-wheelers
  • Side-by-sides
  • Youth ATVs
  • Lawn tractors or riding mowers
  • Snowmobiles

Our law firm has had recent successes with the resolution of accident claims involving the Kawasaki Mule utility ATV. We also advise people about their legal options after injury accidents involving personal watercraft on rivers, lakes or reservoirs.
