Recreation Vehicle (RV) Accidents

Bad things happen all the time, even when you are right in the middle of having the time of your life. Recreational accidents are those that happen when you are doing something recreational, from practicing your moves on a jet ski, to enjoying the cool winter weather on a snowmobile, from cycling through the countryside to bouncing away from the blues on a friend’s trampoline. The recreational vehicle accident lawyers at ShermoenJaksa Law handle all aspects of personal injury including recreational accidents. This includes but is not limited to:

  • Jet ski and boating accidents
  • Snowmobiling and skiing accidents
  • ATV and dirt bike accidents
  • Cycling and motorbike accidents
  • Golf cart injuries and golf ball injuries
  • Sports injuries
  • Trampoline and swimming pool liability cases


While in some instances a recreational accident may be your own bad luck, in other instances there is something or someone to blame. If, for example, you are hit while cycling on the road by a reckless driver, if your motorbike crashes due to a mechanical defect, if the mechanic did not adequately service the jet ski,  or if your daughter drowns in your neighbor’s swimming pool, then you could be eligible for compensation through an insurance claim or personal injury lawsuit.

Of course, it is never this simple. It never is when dealing with an insurance claim. Knowing what you are entitled to can be confusing and often there is a big difference between what you are entitled to and what you are actually offered. Our Northern Minnesota personal injury lawyer is committed to bridging the gap between these two figures to ensure that you are getting everything you deserve.


Recreational accidents occur when you least expect them – whether you are if you are faced with an accident then your whole life could be flipped inside out in an instant. You could be faced with chronic or acute pain. Often a recreational injury will result in:

  • Back and neck injuries
  • Spinal and brain injuries
  • Permanent disability and paralysis
  • A loss of limbs

Furthermore, you could also be faced with weeks, if not years of rehabilitation for a serious injury. You could be unable to work for an extensive period of time and be faced with unexpected medical costs. All of these things can take a toll on you physically, emotionally as well as financially.
