Off-road vehicles, including dirt bikes and all-terrain vehicles, can be a great activity for most of the year, making them a common hobby in Maryland. However, off-road vehicles also pose a serious danger to riders, passengers, and pedestrians alike.
As is the case with those who operate vehicles on the road, the operators of off-road vehicles must take certain precautions to avoid causing a Maryland ATV accident. This includes operating the vehicle in a responsible manner, following common etiquette when off-road, and remaining free from the effects of drugs and alcohol while operating the vehicle.
When an ATV accident does occur, there may be multiple parties who are liable to those injured in the accident. This may include the owner of the land where the injury occurred, another driver who caused the accident, or the manufacturer of a faulty or defective part.
