Philadelphia Recreational Vehicle Accidents We Handle

At Wapner Newman, we know that different recreational vehicles have different risks and dangers. Below we discuss some of the most popular recreational vehicles that leave victims in need of a Philadelphia recreational vehicle accident attorney.


Philadelphia offers All-Terrain Vehicle riding on a number of terrains, including 250 miles of dedicated trails in state forests. Today’s quads are heavier, faster, and more powerful than they used to be, with some current models weighing more than 400 pounds, capable of 100 miles per hour, and boasting engines of more than 600cc. Of all 50 states, Pennsylvania has the third-highest number of ATV crashes, with 112 ATV-related deaths between 2016 and 2018. Those who survive an ATV crash often suffer severe internal injuries or paralysis.

Dirt Bikes

Like ATVs, dirt bikes are not allowed on the road, but that doesn’t seem to stop riders from taking chances. Locals have struggled with these machines and their riders for years, with Philadelphia authorities confiscating 149 dirt bikes and ATVs in 2023 alone. Zipping through traffic creates a hazardous situation for motorists and pedestrians, and chasing them can make the riders more dangerous – even to themselves.


Snowmobilers in Pennsylvania have to register their machines with the Department of Conservation and Natural Resources whether they are going to use them exclusively on their own property or not. Snowmobiles operated off the owner’s private property also need to be covered by liability insurance. Each year, snowmobiles crash with fixed objects, other snowmobiles, cars, and more, primarily due to unsafe speed and intoxication.


Popup campers, camper vans, fifth wheels, and motorhomes all fall under the recreational vehicle (RV) category that we often think of packing the family into for the quintessential American vacation. While they are enjoyable, they are also dangerous. With long braking distances, poor maneuverability, and behemoth size, they can prove hard to handle. It can be easy to overload these vehicles, to roll them over due to their higher center of gravity, to not see objects in the large blind spots, and to have trouble with navigating narrow roads or tight turns.

If you were injured in a crash involving a dirt bike, ATV, motorhome, or snowmobile, you may be able to recover injury compensation. Call Wapner Newman at (215) 569-0900 to speak with a Philadelphia recreational vehicle accident attorney.

How Our Philadelphia Recreational Vehicle Accident Lawyers Can Help

Fighting for the Injury Compensation You Need

Our Philadelphia recreational vehicle accident lawyers will handle your case from start to finish while you focus on recovering from your injuries. Our first step will be to establish liability, which helps identify who should pay for your injuries. If your accident involved a car crash, we’ll build a case to pursue compensation through the other driver’s auto insurance policy. Sometimes, recreational vehicle crashes happen due to a manufacturing or design defect. In a situation like this, our lawyers will need to build a product liability case against the designer, manufacturer, or distributor.

As Wapner Newman works on your case, our team may:

  • Collect evidence of how the crash happened
  • Gather eyewitness testimony
  • Seek video footage from traffic, home, business, and security cameras
  • Build a case for liability
  • Submit a claim or file a lawsuit
  • Communicate with the other parties on your behalf
  • Negotiate a settlement with the insurance company
  • Represent you in court proceedings.

The common factor in every case is that allowing our Philadelphia recreational vehicle accident attorneys to represent you will nearly always help increase the compensation money you walk away with.
