ATV Accidents

The All-Terrain Vehicle, better known as the ATV, is one of the most popular sportsman vehicles in the country. Off roading is the favorite pastime of many Americans, and every year many Americans are injured or killed in ATV accidents.

ATVs are great fun and have many practical uses, but accidents occur when ATV users don’t follow the guidelines and restrictions set out by the ATV manufacturers. ATVs come in many different sizes, have different engine sizes, and can carry one to two people. The size and power of the ATV should compare appropriately with the size and skill of the ATV driver, but many times younger drivers will try to drive an ATV that is much too large for them—this is when accidents happen—or, in some cases, the ATV driver has been drinking or is under the influence of drugs or other substances. Driving an ATV should be just as serious as driving a regular motor vehicle, but too many times people are careless, and people get hurt.

Types of ATV accidents can include:

  • Collisions
  • Rollovers
  • Being run over by the ATV
  • Being struck by the ATV

ATV accidents can lead to:

  • Burns
  • Abrasions
  • Fractures
  • Concussions
  • Bruising
  • Dislocations
  • Whiplash
