ATV’s and Other Fun Equipment
It’s summer when everyone wants to try something new and do something crazy, like jump on their cousin’s dirt bike and head for the hills when they’ve never even learned to ride a bicycle. Very often, vacationers rent equipment they have no experience with and no idea how to operate safely. The rental companies don’t ask and don’t offer instruction. ATV’s are a popular choice. So is water equipment, such as jet skis.
Inexperienced riders, riders who are too young to safely operate the equipment, and riders who are intoxicated all pose a big threat to themselves and everyone around them. Little to nothing is done to prevent the problem, and in crowded recreational areas, you can be surrounded by people who either don’t knowhow or don’t care about using this equipment safely.
People are partying, and they do it all day long. Drunk drivers are not the only risk. Driver who are hungover are also impaired and can cause accidents, especially if they are travelling and unfamiliar with their surroundings. If you were injured by a drunk driver, you may also have a third-party claim against the bar, restaurant, or establishment that served the alcohol or against a social host who provided the alcohol, especially if the driver was under 21 years old.
Dram shop and social host responsibility varies from state to state, so you’ll need to talk to an attorney in the state where the accident took place, or where the alcohol was provided if the driver crossed state lines after drinking and before causing your accident.
