Three wheeled all terrain vehicles (ATVs) were popular in the 1970s and 1980s. Over time the four wheel design became more popular. One problem with the three wheel design is that it would often not turn safely in loose dirt and sand. That problem was called “plowing.” Our client was riding his friend’s three wheeled ATV when it plowed in loose dirt and caused him to hit a tree. He suffered a shoulder injury that required surgery. We were able to settle the case during litigation. The settlement allowed our client to repay Medicaid for the treatment it paid for and to set up a fund for his future needs.
