Injured in an ATV Accident?
All Terrain Vehicles (ATVs) are 3 and 4-wheel motorized vehicles used for off-road riding. They are used for recreational, farming and rescue purposes and as modes of transport in off-road areas. As useful and fun as ATVs are, they also pose a significant threat to people, including children.
Many states do not require a license or any training to operate an ATV however some of these vehicles can weigh in excess of 750 lbs and can travel as fast as 75 miles per hour! In 2010 there were 310 reported ATV-related deaths and over 100,000 emergency room treated injuries due to accidents involving ATVs. 55 of the reported deaths and 28,000 of the emergency room treated injuries were children under the age of 16.*
ATV accidents can be complicated, especially in determining who is at fault. The owner of the ATV may be responsible, or perhaps the trail you were on was damaged, meaning the owner of the trail may be at fault. Finally, what if the ATV itself was defective?
