ATVs have both utilitarian and recreational uses. ATV accidents are all too common in Connecticut, as in the rest of the country. Statistics say that several hundred deaths involving ATVs happen nationwide every year. For every fatality there are many other instances of serious nonfatal injuries.
Risk factors of ATV usage include:
- Uneven terrain
- Lack of safety features like seat belts and helmets, in many cases
- Legal operation by children
- Factors similar to other motor vehicle accidents, such as blinding sunlight, other visibility problems, user inexperience, inebriation, human error and vehicle malfunction
Injuries affect many parts of the body. Head injuries and crush injuries are common. Whatever the injury or severity, the most important things to do immediately afterward are to get prompt medical care if applicable and to consult with an experienced personal injury lawyer.
