Helping You Up If A Side-By-Side Accident Left You In A Ditch

A side-by-side is a type of ATV equipped with a steering wheel and designed for stability and control. However, it can cause life-altering accidents to drivers and passengers. The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission reports that ATVs – side-by-sides included – cause more than 700 deaths and more than 10,000 emergency room visits in the United States each year.

If you’re involved in a side-by-side accident, our Seattle personal injury attorneys at Pendergast Law are here to support you. We navigate the legal dirt tracks so you can focus on recovery, offering guidance and advocacy to ensure you receive the compensation you deserve.

Understanding Side-By-Side ATV Accidents

Operating a side-by-side ATV can be exhilarating, yet it comes with many risks. Even when taking precautions, drivers can encounter dangers that can lead to accidents. These may include:

  • Negligent drivers
  • Underage operation
  • Excessive speeds
  • Off-camber trails
  • Alcohol use
  • Distracted drivers
  • Poorly maintained vehicles

If you are injured in a side-by-side accident, several parties could be liable, including other drivers, the vehicle manufacturer, a property owner or even an employer if the ATV was used for work-related activities. Determining liability is crucial, and our side-by-side accident lawyers are skilled at uncovering who is responsible for your losses.

Handling With All Kinds Of Washington ATV And UTV Injuries

While side-by-sides are generally considered safer than standard ATVs like quads due to features like seat belts and roll cages, serious injuries can still occur. Our personal injury lawyers are well-versed in these types of cases and can help victims understand their rights. Common ATV or utility task vehicle (UTV) accident injuries include:

Following a side-by-side accident, you may be eligible for compensation covering lost wages, medical costs, and pain and suffering, among others. In Washington, you have up to three years to file a claim. Our ATV accident attorneys can streamline this process. We emphasize the importance of legal guidance to navigate these complex cases effectively.
