Can I Hold a Texas ATV Rental Company Liable for My Injuries?

At the Hollingsworth Law Firm, our Houston personal injury attorneys know that is it not uncommon for Texas residents, visitors, and tourists to rent All-Terrain Vehicles (ATV) to take in the sights around the state.

And, why not? ATVs are fun, and versatile, and allow access to properties where other vehicles cannot go.

Unfortunately, ATVs can also be dangerous, especially when they are rented from companies that place profits over safety. This could mean renting the same ATVs repeatedly, without scheduling maintenance reviews, by not maintaining the vehicles at all, or by renting them to drivers who are not legally able to operate them.

Here is what you need to know about your legal rights and options to pursue an ATV rental company for injuries or fatalities that occur on their vehicles.

When Can a Texas ATV Rental Company Be Held Liable for Accidents, Injuries, and Fatalities?

When renting a car, truck, or SUV, an individual operating the vehicle expects it to be safe for use. This is true for ATV renters, too.

A Texas ATV rental company may be held responsible for an accident if it:

  • Does not check the ATVs for safety issues before each rental or avoids regularly maintaining the vehicles to ensure they are not endangering the riders.
  • Does not provide adequate training to its riders or require that they have previous ATV experience before renting.
  • Fails to comply with Texas ATV rental laws, including renting to riders who are not tall enough, old enough, or do not carry a valid driver’s license.
  • Supplied vehicles that were too large or too powerful for the rider to control.

If you were hurt on a rented ATV in Texas, the rental company may not be the only liable party. Others may include the ATV manufacturer, a property owner, or another ATV driver for negligently operating the vehicle that caused your accident.

Like all important personal injury claims, an ATV accident will require an in-depth investigation into the circumstances that caused the crash. That is what we do.
