All Terrain Vehicles (ATVs) are a popular recreational off road vehicle, especially here in North Carolina. ATVs, also called four wheelers, can be a lot of fun. However, things can go wrong and injury-causing accidents up to and including death can result. Many more ATV accidents happen every year in America. As more people purchase ATVs, more accidents can be expected. Proper safety precautions should always be taken while operating ATVs. Sometimes even if you have worn all the recommended safety gear, including the most important helmet, injury-causing accidents happen. One of the worst injuries that can occur to people who are injured in a four wheeler accident is spinal cord injury or head injury. These are crippling accidents that can take one afternoon of fun and turn it into a lifelong disability. There have been incidents of severed spinal cords, dislocated vertebrae and punctured lungs or organs. Even if the victim of the four wheeler accident survives, he or she may be unable to recover from their injury or resulting medical conditions. They may be disfigured for the rest of their lives.
Because many off road vehicle accidents take place while the four wheeler is carrying passengers, there is a chance of many ensuing liability issues related to the injuries of the passenger or passengers. At times, passengers of off road vehicle accidents sustain worse injuries than the drivers. When the passengers are young, it’s of course much worse. If your child or loved one was injured in an ATV accident, it could be the faulty machinery was to blame. It could be the result of the driver of the off road vehicle, or it could be another ATV driver speeding recklessly who caused the accident. If so, you may have a legitimate claim. You won’t know how to proceed until you’ve spoken to an ATV accident attorney.
