Things You Need to Do after an ATV Accident

Here are some things you need to do if you have been in an ATV accident:

  1. See a medical professional. Minor injuries can turn into major problems, especially with the neck and back. You will also need documentation of your condition if you proceed with the legal process.
  2. Get as much information you can about your accident. Key items include the names, numbers and addresses of all the people involved, including witnesses; the precise location of the crash; information about the ATV, including the make and model number, etc. You will also need copies of all the insurance information.
  3. Do not talk to anyone about your accident other than law enforcement officials. Anything you say to insurance company representatives or investigators could make it harder for you to settle your claim. It is also a good idea not to sign anything, particularly some kind of release form, without talking to an attorney first. This is just a smart way for you to protect yourself.
  4. Keep in mind that you have a limited amount of time to file a lawsuit. There is usally a statute of limitations, or a legal deadline, for filing a lawsuit when it comes to ATV accidents. If your claim is not brought within that time, it may be barred regardless of its merits.
  5. Consult a lawyer. You probably have a lot to handle right now, and a competent lawyer can make sure everything gets done right. A lawyer can also make things a lot easier for you by negotiating with insurance companies and guiding you through the legal process.
