ATV accidents are tough cases that must be handled properly

In West Virginia, many people ride ATVs for recreational purposes due to the rural landscape. As a result of this popularity, many cases of ATV accidents have occurred in the state, particularly in Cabell, West Virginia. Some accidents are caused by another ATV rider or due to faulty parts installed in the ATVs which may increase the likelihood of the vehicle rolling over or resulting in difficulty for the rider to operate the vehicle with defective parts. When someone is injured in an ATV accident, such as a rollover, that person may be entitled to damages.
