ATV Accident Attorney
The Dangers of ATVs
According to the Consumer Protection Safety Commission, from 2015 through 2019, there were 524,600 emergency department-treated injuries in the United States associated with OHVs (ATVs, ROVs, and/or UTVs).
This corresponds to an annual average of 104,900 emergency department-treated injuries over the five-year period. Some of these injuries are due to operator error; however, some are due to a malfunction with the ATV itself. If an ATV is defectively designed or defectively manufactured, it can be more prone to causing a crash. ATV accidents are extremely dangerous.

ATV Accident FAQ
The average ATV weighs more than 500 pounds and many can reach speeds of up to 80 miles per hour. ATV accidents can result in serious injury or death. Some of the most common injuries are: broken bones, spinal cord injuries, traumatic brain injuries, and second and third-degree burns.
The answer to this question is that it depends on the facts of the case. Multiple parties might be liable, including the driver and owner of the ATV. If the ATV accident was due to a malfunction of the ATV itself, the manufacturer that designed the product or retailer who sold it could be liable.
Unfortunately, not all ATVs are created equal. If an ATV is defectively designed or defectively manufactured, it can cause or contribute to an ATV accident.
No. The fact that a product has not been recalled does not mean it is not defective. Unfortunately, there are likely millions of defective products on the market that have not been recalled.
Our firm has handled countless cases involving defective products which have yet to be recalled. We have made numerous successful recoveries on behalf of clients injured by these products.

Mitch and his team at Chubb Law did such a great job on my case. I never had to pick up the phone to call for an update because Mitch was always in touch with one before I needed one. Mitch and his team made the process much easier by keeping me informed, and everyone at Chubb law is super friendly and professional. They made an unfortunate situation much more bearable. They really care about every one of their cases, and they work hard to get their clients what they deserve. 100% recommend.
Attorney Mitch Chubb and his staff are extremely professional and thorough. They treat you like family and will do everything they can to maximize the value of your case. I highly recommend them.
If I could give 100 stars I would!! Chubb Law team is extremely efficient, professional, down to earth, caring and is right there every step of the way. Attorney Mitch helped me get set up with the proper care and steps to take immediately after I got into an accident. He always checks in, gives updates and reminds me that I need to focus on getting better and he will take care of everything else! Chubb Law has been a blessing and I cannot thank them enough for all that they’ve done to help me!
I had an abrupt change of quality of life. My whole world was turned upside down. Mitch was beyond helpful. Aside from the spectacular legal advice and representation, he genuinely cared. He reached out after each and every surgery to see how I was doing. He was just great. I couldn’t recommend him and his colleagues enough. I hope you never need legal representation, but if you do, these are the guys you want.
10 OUT OF 5 STARS!!! I had the pleasure of working with Mitch & his team after an awful experience with my 1st lawyer. I came across Mitch and let me tell you, BEST DECISION EVER!! I never knew a lawyer could be such a friend! Mitch was there for me through every step of the way! It was over a 2 year process with lots of doctors & procedures & pain, but he was constantly there with words of encouragement and hope. I don’t think I would have made it through if it wasn’t for Mitch. I never felt pressured or rushed, just like a friend was there, looking out for me. He even offered to bring me food after one of my surgeries! I’m telling you, you will not find a more caring, kind, thoughtful team then Mitch and his people!
My husband was in a terrible semi truck accident. Initially my husband was blamed for the accident, but our lawyers at Chubb Law was able to prove what actually happened. Chubb Law became our second family. They stayed in contact with us as we dealt with the numerous aspects of the accident including working with other lawyers, dealing with doctors, insurance paperwork, and many other parts of our ordeal. They were easy to talk to, candid, honest, compassionate and upfront about legal issues. We appreciated these valuable characteristics throughout our difficult time. I would highly recommend Chubb Law to anyone who needs help from this great team of lawyers.
I was injured and didn’t know how to handle what came next. Mitch stepped in and took care of everything he possibly could. He was so helpful and so professional, yet very personable and friendly. He always walked me through everything that happened and kept me up to date on my case. When I got discouraged and felt like walking away he would tell me that I deserved this. He was amazing through the whole process and got me a great settlement. I couldn’t have been happier with the results. His number is definetly saved in my phone!!!
When I came to Mitch I had just been in a horrible crash with a drunk driver. My car was totaled, insurance companies were calling me and I was trying to manage all of this despite being hurt from the crash. During my first call with Mitch he comforted me, assured me they would take care of everything, and told me my only job was to do whatever I needed to heal from my injuries. He took the time to listen to what I had to say and was very confident that they would make sure everything would be ok. He and his team communicated with me every step of the way, made sure all of my questions were answered, and made sure I had everything I needed. After fighting with the insurance company for me, Mitch was able to get them to pay much more than I expected!
I waited for years had no response out of my original lawyer once Mitch took over my case it was the best thing that could’ve happened he moved Aggressively on getting The matter at hand Resolved Very down to earth extremely Easy to work with would highly recommend using his services
Mitch did a great job with my motorcycle accident. He even went to another state to the manufacturer of the product with an expert to document the faulty hub. He got me the best settlement he could based on the manufacturer’s poor insurance policy. Thanks Mitch…Richard.
