Off-Road Vehicles are an exciting weekend activity. Exploring Prairie City OHV park outside Rancho Cordova is a pastime enjoyed by many in the Sacramento area. Though safety equipment has come a long way over the years, there are still many risks associated with riding off-road trails.
Unfortunately, there are many who own off-road vehicles such as dirt bikes, quads, go-karts, Polaris Rzr, and many others who are not responsible riders which puts others at risk. A study on Pubmed.gov stated that it is common for those in their mid-twenties and younger to be involved in accidents involving off-road vehicles due to how easy it is to flip over. 60% of the accidents from off-road vehicles that lead to injury come from flip over accidents. These accidents left scars, disability, and even death in some cases.
An injury from an off-road vehicle accident is almost never minor. Sometimes the accident is self-caused, but often there is a second party involved. Off-road parts are often treated as race tracks where multiple operators are driving at excessive speeds in different directions. It is very important for operators of off-road vehicles to use caution and to be aware of their environment at all times.

IF YOU’VE BEEN IN AN OFF-ROAD VEHICLE ACCIDENT
Your first priority, of course, is to get the appropriate medical attention. However, as soon as you are able, it is important to consult an attorney experienced in handling off-road vehicle accident cases. Often, helpful information can be obtained from an early investigation, including visiting the scene and taking measurements and photographs, inspecting the off-road vehicles involved and talking to witnesses.
It is important not to give any statements to insurance investigators until you have talked to an attorney. Frequently, you will be contacted by someone from the insurance company insuring the off-road vehicle that hit you, if they have insurance. The purpose of that contact is to try to develop evidence that will help them defeat any claim for damages that you might later make.
