ATV Accidents

ATV AccidentsEach year, more and more families are devastated by deaths and severe injuries caused by ATV accidents. The Consumer Product Safety Commission annual report in 2007 states that ATV related deaths and injuries include:
  • Serious injuries requiring emergency treatment increased from 146,000 in 2006 to 151,000 in 2007
  • 542 reports of ATV fatalities for the year 2007
  • 107 children under the age of 16 were killed on ATVs which accounted for 20% of all fatalities
  • 40,000 serious injuries in 2007 for children under the age of 16
The hazards posed by ATVs continue to mount without any regulation. ATVs must be designed to eliminate hazards and enforcement must be effective at both the federal and state level.

If there has been an ATV accident, the ATV needs to be preserved and stored so that top experts can examine it for defectiveness. Some record of its purchase or use can be obtained or pictures may be retrieved for expert evaluation.
