Recreational Vehicle Accidents

Syracuse, New York Boating and other Recreational Vehicle Accident’s Attorney

Recreational vehicles such as all-terrain vehicles (ATVs), snowmobiles, jet skis, and boats are difficult to insure, while the claims resulting from serious or fatal RV accidents are often denied by insurance providers. Meanwhile, boats, ATVs, jet-ski’s, snowmobiles, and other RVs tend to be unstable and riders drive them in challenging situations. If you have suffered a serious injury or lost a loved one as the result of an ATV, boating or other recreational vehicle accident, it is important to have a well-qualified attorney evaluate your case and investigate all possible sources of compensation for your loss.

Do not make the assumption there is no insurance coverage or that your accident is not covered under an existing policy. A number of policies may be responsible for medical expenses and other losses. Our attorneys will explain how many factors are involved in a successful claim and consider related questions:

  • Was the injured person the driver or a passenger?
  • Did the accident or resulting injury result from defective equipment such as a failed helmet, after-market modification, or failed brakes?
  • Did an essential design defect intended to improve aerodynamics of the boat, jet-ski, all-terrain vehicle (ATV) or RV cause it to be unstable?
  • Was the negligence of a property owner or a concealed hazard the cause of the crash?
  • Was alcohol a factor in the snowmobile, jet ski, RV or ATV wreck?

  • Jet Ski crashes
  • Boat accidents

  • ATV accidents

What Happens When Someone is Injured in a Recreational Vehicle?

When people are having fun, they often forget that they still have a responsibility to operate their vehicles in a safe manner. We've all seen someone having fun on a Jet Ski driving recklessly past swimming areas, or someone piloting a boat with a beer in his or her hand and not a care in the world. The fact is that people just like them injure people just like you every single day.

It's not wrong to expect that when someone else's poor decision or negligence causes you serious harm, permanent brain injury or the death of a family member, whether in a boating accident or anywhere else, they should be responsible for damages.

We help you collect those damages while keeping your best interests at the forefront. Contact us with your recreational vehicle or boating accident case and find out how you should be treated by a lawyer who respects your issues and your suffering.
