Toledo, OH (PRWEB) August 13, 2013
Mudding was first put in the spotlight when MTV reality star, Shain Gandee, was killed while mudding, as reported by ABC News on April 2, 2013. WNWO also reported on August 12, 2013 about an accident in Upper Sandusky involving three victims who were injured, bringing this dangerous recreational activity into the spotlight of Ohioans.
Mudding involves an all-terrain or sport-utility vehicle driving on rough, wet terrain. The vehicle races through the area, spinning tires and throwing mud everywhere. While some may think that this is an entertaining activity, Attorney Charles Boyk has found it important to share the legal consequences that can result from mudding.
The legal consequences of mudding include:
- Reckless driving citations
- Monetary fines
- Trespassing charges
- Personal injury and wrongful death lawsuits
“It is imperative for people to not only know the legal consequences of mudding, but also the dangers. This recreational activity can result in broken bones, concussions, and other injuries,” said Attorney Charles Boyk. “The last thing we want to see in the news is a death resulting in mudding.”
