Recreational Vehicle Accidents

North Dakota Recreational Vehicle Accident Attorneys & Lawyers

Recreational vehicles have become bigger, faster, and sometimes – more dangerous. Almost all recreational vehicles are subject to laws restricting their use to protect public safety.

If a recreational vehicle is involved in an accident, there may be complex issues involved, including:

» Unlawful operation of the vehicle
» Insurance Coverage
» Statutes of limitations

If you have been injured while using, or by someone using a recreational vehicle, you need someone who understands the intricacies of the laws applicable to that specific vehicle.

Bicycle Accidents:

Biking has become a popular sport for adults and kids. Safety is a big concern for anyone who rides a bike. Because of the lack of protective gear, injuries such as fractures, road rash, and soft tissue injuries are relatively common. Traumatic brain injuries are common with riders who don’t wear helmets. MWLO believes helmets are so important that we contribute to the distribution of free bike helmets for kids in our community through Fargo/Cass County Public Health Services. If you or someone you know has been injured as a result of riding a bicycle, please contact MWLO and we can help you discuss the issues involved.

Motorcycle Accidents:

Motorcycles have become faster and the risks have increased dramatically over the years. According to industry publications, more than 38,000 motorcyclists have died and an estimated 255,000 were injured in crashes between 1975 and 1999. If you or someone you know has been involved in an accident with a motorcycle, there are several reasons why you need to discuss it with an attorney. MWLO can help you sort out problems with property damage and other insurance issues.

Watercraft Accidents:

Inherent dangers exist with the use of boats, jet-skis and other water recreational equipment and facilities. The laws governing the use of watercraft are evolving as new recreational vehicles are developed. If you have been injured, you need an experienced attorney who understands the pertinent laws. MWLO can help you understand your rights.

Snowcraft Accidents:

Just like with watercraft, the rules for snowmobile use are evolving as new and faster equipment hits the market. Who is at fault and who is going to pay for the damages are questions that we can answer once we understand the facts of the case.


Maring Williams Law Office respects the rights of people who use recreational vehicles. Many of us enjoy these activities as well. On the other hand, we believe that although there is an inherent risk in the use of recreational vehicles, manufacturers have a responsibility to produce safe products and people have a duty to use these products safely. We are here if there is an injury that arises from a defective product or the negligence of an involved party. Call us.
