About Accidents Involving All-Terrain Vehicles
All-terrain vehicles, or ATVs, are responsible for numerous accidents and injuries every year that affect both children and adults. ATV accidents have doubled in the past five years, and those accidents that required emergency room treatment increased by 100 percent. Over 6,000 fatalities have occurred over the past two decades as a result of such accidents, and roughly 113,000 people require medical treatment in a hospital every year for their ATV accident-related injuries.
Who is liable for my injuries?
In many cases, negligence is to blame for these accidents, in cases such as those where the driver of the ATV is insufficiently trained and crashes, injuring others, or where the driver causes an accident due to being under the influence of alcohol or drugs. In addition, the ATV manufacturer may be at fault.
The earlier tricycle design ATV lead to so many accidents that the design was largely discontinued, but accidents in the three-wheeler ATVs still happen every day which may be filed as product liability claim. If you have been injured in an ATV accident due to someone else’s negligence, then you may be entitled to compensation for the damages you have suffered.
