Atv Accidents Can Have Tragic Results
Most accidents involving all-terrain vehicles, or ATVs, occur because of unlawful activity. This includes operation on paved roads; operation by a driver too young for the size of the vehicle; sharing the vehicle with a passenger; riding without protective apparel; riding under the influence of alcohol or drugs; and driving without having undergone the required training.
Statistics reported by the Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) show an annual increase in the number of injuries and tragically, fatalities, during the past decade, both nationally and within the state of Texas. A vast majority of these accidents involve children under the age of sixteen.
ATVs are used both for recreation as well as for use in certain occupations where transportation is needed in off-road locations. There are a number of laws which regulate how, when and where you use such a vehicle, playing a significant role in determining the extent of what can be expected in the event of an accident.

What causes ATV accidents?
While ATV accidents have a variety of causes, it is important to allow an experienced attorney to review the circumstances of the case to determine whether negligence played a key role. Some of the factors which can affect the outcome of the case can include age of the operator; whether proper supervision was exercised; use of an oversized vehicle; the location of the accident; and other variables.

Great attorney and staff!
In December 2012 I was in a very bad accident. My mother’s car was totaled and I did not have a lawyer at the time. After the accident I was referred to a lawyer by a friend and the process was very slow and not professional. I dropped that lawyer and hired Mr. Gordon. Mr. Gordon helped my mother get paid for her car and helped close my injury case. The overall experience with Mr. Gordon and his firm was very professional. Everything in my case moved quickly and in an orderly manner.
As populated as our city is..accidents, sometimes are inevitable. It’s during those times, when you need someone you can trust the most. Therefore, for the past 10+ years and the few accidents my family and I have been involved in, we all go to Mr. Joel Gordon. Not only is he professional, but also friendly and compassionate towards your situation and guides with the heart, not the #’s (un-like some out there).?
I was very pleased with the outcome of my case. Joel Gordon was never hard to reach and always had an answer to any question. He did a good job at keeping you updated with anything that went on. He goes out of his way to make sure his client is satisfied. I would definitely recommend him to anyone who has been in an accident.
I am very very pleased with the prompt professional service I received from Mr Gordon recently after being hit by another driver while stopped at a red light. The other driver’s company was stalling and not doing much of anything to get matters settled with my car or health issues, but within 24 hours of calling Mr. Gordon, he got my vehicle settlement for me and made arrangements for me to start getting treatments for my neck and shoulder injuries.
