Accidents Involving All Terrain Vehicles

All terrain vehicles are used for work and play across the state of Florida, and as with any type of vehicle, there are inherent dangers. The most common type of injury cases involve the ATV flipping or rolling over. Most ATVs are not designed to hold passengers and often, are too unstable to drive on pavement. The driver and/or passenger can be thrown from the ATV and even pinned under it. Children are especially vulnerable since they often lack the strength and motor skills to operate ATVs properly. Some of the most serious ATV injuries include death, paralysis, and traumatic brain injury, or TBI. TBI is a serious condition that can also include symptoms like headache, persistent concussion, memory problems, vertigo, emotional instability, and more. Neck injuries, fractures, dislocations, concussions, lacerations, and chest and abdominal injuries are common as well. ATV accidents may also be caused by a mechanical defect or other manufacturer defect. Defects in brakes, steering or other problems can cause the driver to lose control and potentially hit obstacles like trees, fencelines, buildings, or other vehicles. If you or a loved one were injured because of a defect that caused an accident, you should contact an attorney.
