Common ATV Accident Injuries

Although most ATV crashes do not result in a fatality, they do, however, cause serious injuries. It is not uncommon to see the following in the aftermath of an accident:

  • Spinal cord injuries (with possible paralysis)
  • Traumatic brain injuries
  • Internal organ damage/internal bleeding
  • Broken or dislocated bones
  • Severe lacerations or amputations

ATV crash victims often face financial stress from being unable to work and earn the income they need to support themselves and their families. This is in addition to hefty medical bills. Companies that offer ATV rentals must ensure that users are properly trained and have access to the necessary safety equipment.

ATV Accident Statistics

The 2018 Annual Report of ATV-Related Deaths and Injuries details the following statistics:

  • More than 80,000 ATV injury victims visited the emergency room in 2018. About 26 percent of these individuals were children under the age of 16.
  • The injuries treated in 2018, primarily affected these body parts: the arm (shoulders to fingertips), the head or neck, leg, and the torso.
  • There were 264 ATV accident-related fatalities in 2018 and 463 in 2017.
  • Approximately 21 percent of the total accident-related fatalities between 1982 and 2018 were children under 16.

Helmets have been known to reduce the risk of fatalities in ATV accidents by 42 percent. Research also states they can reduce the possibility of a non-fatal head injury by 64 percent.

Collecting Damages After an ATV Accident

Proving liability for an ATV accident can be difficult, especially if the collision occurred in a remote area, or without any witnesses. Additional factors may involve whether the ATV driver and passenger had training, safety precautions taken, if the vehicle was properly maintained or had any defects, as well as whether the helmet was faulty. All of these considerations must be taken into account when determining the parties that are liable for damages. If you or a member of your family has been injured in an ATV accident, speak to an attorney to discuss your legal options before filing an insurance claim.
