Los Angeles ATV Accident Attorneys
Serving Clients Injured in Off-Road Recreational Vehicles and ATVs
When you’re injured in a crash involving an off-road recreational vehicle such as an ATV or jeep, the consequences can be devastating. Although these vehicles do provide less protection to occupants than cars, engineers often add other design features to improve safety for a vehicle used in rocky, hilly and wet terrain – and when these protections fail to work in your favor, you may have grounds for a claim against the manufacturer or another driver.
If you were hurt or a loved one died in an ATV accident and you suspect a vehicle defect or design failure was to blame, work with a personal injury law firm with decades of experience proving auto defect cases. Our Los Angeles ATV accident lawyers at Greene Broillet & Wheeler, LLP have a powerful track record of results in these matters, and we care about helping our clients recover financially and physically from their serious injuries.

Understanding Common ATV Design Defects
To protect passengers, all-terrain vehicles (ATVs) often have a wider wheelbase and a lower center of gravity, which should make them more difficult to roll. The roll bar over the passenger area and a strong seat belt restraint system are meant to protect passengers in the event the ATV does roll over.
Unfortunately, ATV design defects have led to hundreds of serious injuries across the U.S. The most recent ATVs to be recalled after fatal rollover accidents are the Raptor and the Yamaha Rhino.
In the case of the Rhino, all three important safety measures were inadequate:
- The ATV lacked stability and was even more prone to roll over than other ATVs
- The Rhino seat belts failed, allowing passengers to be flung from the ATV.
- In several instances, the Rhino roll bar collapsed.
Few law firms can match depth of experience or the resources that our team can bring to your case. We work with leading vehicle engineering experts to understand the effects of design choices and to identify structural weaknesses. We even maintain an in-house investigator who can create models, illustrations and computer presentations to communicate complex information to a jury.
Whenever possible, we obtain the actual vehicle involved in the ATV rollover accident and store it in an evidence warehouse. In some trials, the jury has been allowed to visit this warehouse to see the evidence for themselves.
