Recreational Vehicle Accidents
Our attorneys help you seek compensation for your injuries
When the weather is beautiful here in South Carolina - which is to say, most of the time - many people can be seen outdoors having fun on recreational vehicles. But just as with any other vehicle, negligence can lead to an accident that leaves people injured. If you've been hurt in an accident involving a recreational vehicle, the experienced recreational vehicle attorneys at Lourie Law Firm can help you recover damages.
Some of the cases involving recreational vehicles that we handle involve:
Car accident cases involving recreational vehicles can be complicated. But our legal team knows where to look for evidence of negligence.

We work closely with accident reconstruction specialists and other experts to determine what really happened.
If we can establish negligence, we can help you seek compensation for your injuries. This can include medical expenses, lost wages, mental anguish, pain and suffering and other damages. In some cases, you may also be able to pursue punitive damages. If we can't reach a negotiated settlement, we will be prepared to fight for you in court. You don't owe us a thing until we recover compensation for you.
All-Terrain Vehicles (ATV)
ATVs are popular among people of all ages, and are even used by families. But as with any other vehicle, accidents can happen and people can get hurt. And negligence may have caused the accident. For example, another ATV operator may have been driving recklessly. An organization or person may have failed to properly maintain a trail. Or the vehicle itself may have been defective. Our attorneys can review your case and advise you of your options.
Golf carts are fun to drive - but they are not exactly safe. They are very lightweight vehicles with small tires, and can easily roll over. They also lack basic safety features such as doors, safety belts and airbags. Hitting a small bump in the road, or a pothole can easily turn the cart over. A cart driver may have been intoxicated, or a path was not properly maintained. An experienced attorney can determine whether negligence led to your injuries.
These two-wheeled vehicles are smaller and lighter than motorcycles, but remain popular. Though not very powerful, they can reach speeds high enough to cause serious injuries if there is an accident. Moped accidents can involve collisions with cars, trees, telephone poles and other objects. Or a moped operator can get hurt trying to avoid a collision. Another driver's negligence can easily lead to an accident. Our attorneys can advise you of your rights.
Boating is a fun activity, but one that needs to be practiced responsibly. Negligence can lead to an accident that leaves people hurt. Depending on the circumstances, negligent parties can include boat operators, boat owners, rental companies or manufacturers. Operators need to be responsible, owners and rental companies need to keep their boats properly maintained, and manufacturers must ensure their boats are safe. A lawyer can help you determine if negligence played a role in your boating accident.
