With hundreds of miles and thousands of acres of ATV trails, Kansas is an off-roaders paradise. Whether you take a leisurely ride at Eisenhower State Park or hit the moguls and motocross jumps at Green Acres MX, you'll need a comprehensive ATV insurance policy. It's the only way to ensure that your machine is up and running after swift repairs, and to protect your finances from paying to treat injuries or defending yourself against lawsuits.
Before you search for ATV insurance quotes, however, there are several factors to consider.
According to the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission:
Although Kansas law does not require you to carry ATV insurance, it is still a good idea to find a policy that will protect you from lawsuits and help you recover quicklly following an accident. Kansas law does require the following for ATV riders:
Local governments may have additional regulations you must follow, so always check your city and county laws regarding ATVs before you ride. Some privately owned ATV parks may also require certain things before you can hit their trails, including proof of ATV insurance.
ATVs are fast and higly maneuverable. That's what makes them so fun to ride in the wide open spaces of Kansas, but it's also what makes them so dangerous. ATVs can be risky – for riders, passengers, and those around them – and ATV insurance is designed to help cover the costs associated with a mishap or incident, as well as theft. ATV insurance helps you recover financially so that the cost of repairs, injuries, and even lawsuits do not end up being more than you can manage out of pocket.
When you are in an accident that results in injuries or damages, your insurance agent can help you start the claims process and get compensation.
The most comprehensive policies also protect you from a lawsuit should a passenger or another rider sue you for any harm you cause them while operating your ATV.
Most insurance providers will give you several options to choose from when you build your ATV insurance policy. The most common features include:
