ATV accident FAQ
Unfortunately, auto insurance does not cover ATV accidents. ATV insurance can be purchased but is separate from an auto policy. If you were injured on someone else’s property, your injuries may be covered by their homeowners liability insurance.
Here's a list of tips to help you talk to an insurance company after an accident:
- Notify your insurance carrier that you’ve been in an accident IMMEDIATELY. Waiting only weakens your claim, especially if you’ve been injured.
- See a doctor, even if you’re not sure you’ve been injured. Some injuries can take hours or days to show up. Records from a medical professional explaining your injuries will be invaluable in backing up your claim.
- Be careful during phone calls with insurance adjusters. When speaking on the phone with an insurance adjuster, understand that the insurance company will try to pressure you into taking a lowball settlement. Know who you’re talking to, decline requests to record the conversation, take notes, limit the amount of details you give and don’t ever settle immediately.
- Include compelling evidence of trauma from the accident. Evidence can include:
- Journals detailing the accident's effects on your everyday life
- Medical records concerning your emotional distress
- Photographs of the accident and aftermath
- Witness statements for the accident itself or its impact on your daily life.

We will fight for your rights, no matter how long it takes.
