“You know you’re in good hands with Donnelly Murphy Lawyers.”
Not every ATV accident case requires a lawsuit. But if you or a loved one were hurt because someone was driving an ATV recklessly, you may have a claim to recover compensation for your losses.
The most common instances of negligence in ATV accidents include impaired driving, inexperienced driving, excessive speed, or reckless driving in difficult conditions such as at night.
Ontario’s Limitations Act imposes a time limit of two years for most personal injury cases, including ATV accidents. However, some factors can extend or shorten the limitation date — that’s why it’s crucial to contact an ATV accident lawyer as soon as possible. If you wait too long, your case may be dismissed, and you won’t be able to collect any compensation for your injuries.
You can recover several damages after an ATV accident. You should also consider your future damages when determining the value of your claim. You may be entitled to compensation for:

Unlike some provinces and territories, Ontario law requires ATVs to be insured under a motor vehicle liability policy in most cases. Ontario’s Off-Road Vehicles Act also establishes that ATV owners are liable in the event of an accident caused by a driver who had the owner’s permission to use the vehicle.
If you’re hurt driving an ATV you own, you can file a claim with your insurance company to seek accident benefits for your injuries.
