Charlotte Personal Injury Attorney Matt Arnold answers the question: “Are the laws or rules applying to a wrongful death claim different from a personal injury not involving death?”
Utility Terrain Vehicles, UTVs, are specially modified vehicles that are mainly used for work situations. UTVs are similar to ATVs. However, there are some differences. Recent changes in North Carolina laws make driving some UTVs on the street legal. That is good news for some people who own UTVs and are prepared to make the changes necessary to drive them around town. UTVs can also be dangerous, so it is important to follow the laws regarding riding them on the street. A driver of a UTV could be held responsible for an accident if his negligence caused the crash.
