Quad Biking Accidents

Quad biking can be an extremely enjoyable activity that provides a great thrill due to its speed and adventurous nature. However as with any mode of transport there are risks associated with riding on a quad bike. Designed for off road use quad bikes handle differently to motorbikes and cars, and have a tendency to overturn easily. They can reach speeds of up to 60 mph and can cause injury in a number of ways:

Injury risks

  • Quad bikes overturning and falling on top of riders
  • Becoming involved in an accident with road vehicles
  • Failure to wear protective clothing such as crash helmets
  • A rider coming off a bike and hitting the road beneath him or her; causing devastating skin injuries if the correct clothing is not being worn
  • An extra rider unbalancing the machine, making it difficult to handle, leading to a toppling accident
  • Hazardous weather conditions creating dangerous driving conditions leading to crashes
  • Inexperienced riders taking unnecessary risks and colliding with other quad bikes or trees, rocks and other obstacles

Although it is an extremely enjoyable activity there is a large element of danger involved in quad biking. Quad bikes are powerful pieces of machinery and have the potential to kill riders even when all appropriate safety procedures have been followed. However in cases where safety procedures have not been followed you may be eligible to claim compensation against those responsible for the injuries you have sustained.
