RECREATIONAL VEHICLE ACCIDENTS
Despite the joy inherent in their use, when ATVs, snowmobiles and jet skis are misused, the resulting recreational vehicle accidents can be extremely injurious. Considering the severity of injury that can arise from these types of accidents, it’s important to have the support of a knowledgeable, experienced legal team in the event that you or a loved one suffers in such an accident. The lawyers at Kenney & Conley have the necessary knowledge and experience to guide you and your family through your recreational vehicle case towards the compensation that you deserve.
Recreational Vehicle Accident Attorneys
The investigation and litigation of recreational vehicle accidents can present challenges for personal injury attorneys, especially those whose experience is more generally limited to auto accident claims. One substantial difference between a snowmobile or personal watercraft injury claim and a car accident case involves insurance – most recreational vehicle accidents are covered under homeowners’ policies rather than auto insurance.

Types of Recreational Vehicle Accidents
Another feature of recreational vehicle accident litigation is the fact that relatively little regulation helps guide questions of liability or fault. Depending on the recreational vehicle involved and the circumstances of its use, there might be no requirement for a license. As a result, personal injury claims in recreational vehicle accident cases focus not so much on violations of specific traffic or operation regulations, but instead address such broader questions as negligent supervision or negligent entrustment, particularly where the operator at fault is a minor or inexperienced in the use of the vehicle. Because of the vagaries of these limited regulations, experienced attorneys like those at Kenney & Conley are able to provide valuable case knowledge where less experienced attorneys may be unprepared.
Our attorneys have represented injured clients in variety of recreational vehicle accident cases, including accidents involving:
- Dirt bikes
- Snowmobiles and sleds
- Personal watercraft such as jet skis and wave runners
- ATVs and three-wheelers
In investigating your injury claim, the attorneys at Kenney & Conley will work closely with both treating physicians and forensic experts in order to develop clear and accurate evidence as to the extent of your injuries and the treatment and therapy that will be required to support a complete recovery. In cases where the injuries are more serious and likely to result in a long-term or permanent disability to the head or spinal column, we also work with life care plan experts who can present specific evidence as to the projected costs of future home care, adaptive technology, and other expenses involved in adjusting to a catastrophic or disabling injury. Our priority is to provide you with the best possible service and the best possible results.
