Have You Been Injured In An ATV Accident?
All Terrain Vehicles (ATV) are becoming increasingly popular; however, as the number of ATVs increases, so do the accidents. The large size and heavy weight of the ATV paired with the increased power capabilities, can create a deadly combination. With more than 100,000 ATV wrecks reported each year, the numbers of injuries and fatalities continues to rise; more than 60% of people injured on All Terrain Vehicles are under the age of 16. Many of these injuries are spinal cord injuries and head injuries.
ATV accidents are often caused by the flaws in the ATV design or by the negligence of the drivers. Many of the drivers of ATVs do not understand the power of the vehicle or how to properly control it. The manufacturers of ATVs have continued to try to add more features to the ATV, but few of these features have increased the safety of the vehicle. In fact, recently the number of ATV recalls have finally brought awareness to the lack of safety in the vehicles. Many manufacturers are in litigation over their ATVs defective parts and unsafe designs.
If you were injured in an ATV crash or if a loved one was killed in the All Terrain Vehicle accident, you need a personal injury attorney that understands the emotional and physical toll that this wreck took and that can be aggressive in seeking the compensation that you deserve.
