Representing Victims of ATV Accidents In New Jersey

All-terrain vehicles, or commonly called ATVs, provide many hours of fun for kids and adults of all ages.  Unlike other motor vehicles, ATVs are not strictly regulated.  In fact, in New Jersey, a child as young as 14 years of age can operate an ATV without a permit or license.  Purchasing an ATV just requires that the vehicle be registered and operators under 18 years of age participate in an ATV Safety Institute classes.  Adults must monitor and supervise any child operating an ATV.  They also have a legal responsibility to exercise precautions to protect the safety of riders, passengers and bystanders as well as making sure the driver has taken a safety class.  When an adult fails to maintain their responsibility to take these precautions, the adult may be held liable in court.

Many causes of ATV accidents include and are not limited to:  driver error, terrain or road conditions, weather, obstacles, or other vehicles or ATVS.  Many ATV injuries involve brain damage, spine injury, broken bones, head trauma, neck injuries and neurological conditions. These may be life-long injuries and can affect the victim’s ability to work and participate in normal daily activities.
