Dirt bike and ATV injuries can occur for various reasons. Sometimes, the manufacture of the dirt bike or ATV may be responsible for the accident if the company failed to properly design the dirt bike or ATV or failed to warn of a specific danger associated with the machine. These actions are known as product liability action as the plaintiff in these types of actions seeks to hold the manufacturer of the product, in this example the dirt bike or ATV, responsible for the harm that was caused due to a defect with the dirt bike or ATV.
Additionally, if the riding area or facility in which the injured person was riding had an unsafe condition, the owners of the riding area may be liable for any injuries which occur as a result of the dangerous or unsafe condition. The owner of the premises may also be liable for any injuries, which occur as a result of inadequate staff, or supervision of the riding area. This may include the failure to have the proper personal on the track to alert other riders of potential dangers. Riders are typically alerted to a dangerous condition on the track by positioning individuals throughout the track with various colored flags. If danger is present, the individual will waive a colored flag to alert the other riders of the potential hazard. If the track fails to have the proper flaggers or other safety measures injury can result and the track owners can be responsible.
