Woman Dies in ATV Accident

All-terrain vehicles ("ATVs") are a part of life for many people, but sometimes we forget just how dangerous they are. ATV accidents often cause serious injuries and death. Riders should always wear helmets, and anyone who operates an ATV should know how to use it safely and follow the rules of safe riding.

What You Need to Know About ATV Accidents

ATV accidents happen in many ways, and ATV accident victims sustain many different types of injuries. For example, many ATV accident victims get ejected from the ATV during the crash. Some ATVs have seatbelts, but many of the ATVs that people use do not. Ejection can cause head injuries, especially when riders fail to wear helmets. ATV accident victims also often suffer injuries to the face and neck. Sometimes, ATV accidents result in spinal cord injuries or partial or complete paralysis.

Inexperience is a factor in some ATV accidents, while unsafe driving is a factor in others. Many people who ride ATVs do things that increase the risk of a crash, such as driving too fast or drinking and driving. Other possible but less common causes of ATV accidents are mechanical malfunction, failure of one or more parts, and collisions with obstacles on the trail or road.
