atv accident

Every year, many people, including children, are seriously injured or sometimes killed in all-terrain vehicle accidents.  All-terrain vehicles, also known as ATVs, are popular among teens and adults alike. Often seen on dirt trails, campgrounds, or on some public Texas beaches that allow these vehicles, ATVs can be a fun form of outdoor recreation. ATVs may also be used for work, as they provide quick and easy access to off-road areas. Unfortunately, ATVs’ design lacks stability and may tip or roll over. At Hernandez Sunosky, LLP, our top-rated Houston, TX ATV Accident Lawyers help people injured in ATV accidents.
