As all-terrain vehicles continue to soar in popularity, so do many accidents and deaths involving ATVs. Because of their inherently unstable design, these vehicles, which sometimes weigh more than 700 pounds, easily tip over or even roll. Add to this the frequent use of ATVs on uneven surfaces and the vehicles’ high-performance engines capable of speeds topping 85 mph. You can see why the yearly number of ATV-related fatalities and injuries grows.
As a result of dangerous designs and manufacturing defects, children and adults have suffered brain injuries, spinal cord injuries, amputations, and have even been killed in ATV accidents. The victims of injuries resulting from ATV collisions are entitled to receive justice. If you, or a loved one, have been in an ATV accident, contact us for a free consultation.
