Maryland Has Strict ATV Regulations

Maryland has some of the most strict ATV laws in the country. Those regulations limit who can ride an ATV, where the vehicles can be driven, and what types of documents are required to own or operate them.

If you have been harmed by a negligent ATV driver, these strict rules will increase your chances of gaining compensation after an accident. Similar to traditional car drivers, anyone who operates an ATV must have a driver’s license on them at all times while riding.

This means that if you are harmed in an ATV accident, you should be able to get the contact information of the person who hit you. And if you report the accident, the driver is required to provide that identification to authorities.

Getting Compensation Requires an Experienced Attorney

Unfortunately, while Maryland requires ATV drivers to be licensed, it doesn’t mandate that they carry insurance. As a result, unlike with a car accident, you can’t just contact their insurance company and file a claim.

This is where a personal injury lawyer from Koonz McKenney Johnson & DePaolis can help. We will investigate the assets and insurance policies of the person who harmed you and determine how you can get money. Even if they do not have an appropriate ATV policy, there are legal means to get you the compensation you deserve.

Depending on the circumstances of your accident, we may be able to get you money from the driver’s homeowner or car insurance. And even if insurance isn’t an option, we can file a lawsuit to obtain compensation for you.

If you understand the legal system, as well as our personal injury lawyers, do, you can find several unexpected ways to gain compensation for the victim of an accident. Instead of assuming that you are out of luck because the driver doesn’t have the right type of insurance, you should speak to one of our attorneys during a free consultation.

What to Do After Getting Injured in an ATV Accident in Maryland

If you have been hurt in an ATV accident in Maryland, the first thing you should do is call the authorities and report the accident. Getting the police involved can only help your case. 

The responding police officer will create a police report and collect the identifying information of all parties involved. That report can then be used as evidence if you file a lawsuit against the liable party.

It is equally important for you to contact a personal injury attorney as soon as possible. Our law firm has years of experience handling these types of cases and can help you collect important evidence from the accident scene that may be pertinent to your claim.

If you are severely injured, there is another advantage to contacting a personal injury lawyer quickly: the sooner we take your case, the earlier we can take over communications with law enforcement, insurance companies, and other relevant parties. This means you can focus on recovering from your injuries instead of dealing with red tape.
