ATV ACCIDENTS, INJURIES & DEATHS
 

*** Attention ATV Users! ***  

If you were potentially seriously injured while operating an All-Terrain Vehicle (ATV), or if have a loved one who was injured or even died as a result of an accident involving an ATV, please contact us immediately for a FREE potential case evaluation.

  • Death
  • Serious Injury

 

Both of the above have been attributed to ATVs. 

We have ATV lawyers standing by ready to speak with you.  

You may be entitled to compensation for your injuries, and we take all cases on a contingency fee basis, which means you do not pay for our services unless you receive an award/compensation.  

Do not Delay!  

Your rights and compensation may be lost forever if you wait.  

WHAT ARE ATVs? 

An All-Terrain Vehicle (ATV) is, according to the definition of the American National Standards Institute (ANSI), any vehicle that travels upon low-pressure tires, with a seat that is straddled by the operator, and that is specifically equipped with handlebars for steering control.  

As its name suggests, the ATV is designed to cope with a far more diverse variety of terrain than most other vehicles.  

While the ATV is a street-legal vehicle in certain countries, it is not street-legal within most states and provinces of the U.S, Australia, and Canada 

By the current definition of the ANSI, ATVs are strictly intended for use by a single operator - although a change in the law - that may allow for 2-seater-vehicles (where the operator and the passenger would sit in tandem), is currently under consideration. 

The rider sits upon, and operates, the ATV very much like he or she would a motorcycle. However, the extra wheels on the ATV provide greater stability at slower speeds than may be expected from a motorcycle.  

Although generally equipped with either three-wheels or four-wheels, six-wheel versions of ATVs exist for certain, specialized applications. Engine sizes of ATVs currently for sale in the United States range from 49 cc to 1,000 cc. 

ARE THERE ANY POSSIBLE HEALTH RELATED RISKS ASSOCIATED WITH ATVs? 

ATVs were introduced in the early 1970s, and are notable for their association with high-levels of serious injury and death – particularly amongst young children and adolescents.  

According to current statistics, ATVs are equally as dangerous as motorcycles, based upon mortality and injury figures.  

In addition, more children and women are injured on ATVs than any other group – in part, at least, due to the fact that they have been shown to use helmets less frequently than other user-groups.

  • In 2002, there were 357 fatal accidents and 113,900 injuries involving ATVs.
  • In 2004, 767 people died in ATV-associated incidents.
  • In 2005, statistics released by the Consumer Product Safety Commission demonstrate, there were approximately 136,700 injuries associated with ATVs that specifically required treatment in U.S. hospital emergency-rooms.

Although the recommendation is that ATV manufacturers attach a label to their vehicles stating that the use of ATVs greater than 90 cc by riders under the age of 12 is prohibited, critics have noted that policies relative to age are not necessarily sufficient – and may not even be wholly relevant. 

For example, it has been noted that some young males may be both physically larger and stronger than many adult women riders.

And, while some jurisdictions in the U.S. have either banned minors (primarily those under the age of 10) from operating ATVs, advocates of ATVs argue that introducing people at a young age may improve general safety.  

WHAT ARE THE SPECIFIC HEALTH RELATED RISKS? 

The most serious risks include:

  • Death
  • Serious Injury

If you have been seriously injured as a result of an accident involving an ATV, or if you have a loved one who was injured, or who died as a result of an accident involving an ATV, you may have a claim for legal compensation.
