Can I make a quad bike accident claim?
Quad bike accidents usually cause severe or fatal injuries and can be complex claims. Every claim is unique, our experienced accident lawyers can help you find out if you have a claim for compensation.
Whether you're entitled to quad bike injury compensation will depend on a few things:
- which state you're in when the injury occurs
- if the quad bike has been registered
- whether the quad bike accident happened on a road, or if the accident happened on private property, if the property owner holds public liability insurance
- whether you're the driver or the passenger.
If someone you were dependent on is fatally injured in a quad bike accident, you may also be eligible for compensation.
