What Should You Do After A Car Accident?

Jacksonville Product Liability Lawyer: ATV Injury

All-Terrain Vehicles, or ATVs, have become a popular way to explore and enjoy the outdoors. As with any other vehicle, it is important to balance a sense of adventure with the need for safety. Accidents involving ATVs can be very severe or even fatal. Unfortunately, many ATVs are subject to design defects which put their riders at serious risk.

Types of All-Terrain Vehicle Defect

Any flaw in the design of a vehicle that is intended to move at high speeds through rough terrain is clearly a serious concern. Some flaws are especially dangerous, however. Jacksonville all-terrain vehicle accident attorney Don Guthrie is prepared to represent victims of:

  • Faulty designs that increase the risk of a rollover accident
  • Defective brakes or steering mechanisms

Consequences of All-Terrain Vehicle Accidents

In 1998 alone, there were over 60,000 ATV-related injuries, and the numbers have increased. The health impacts of these accidents can include brain or spinal injury, blood loss, or broken bones. The victims of these accidents may spend the rest of their lives coping with physical or mental impairment, disfigurement, and emotional problems such as adjustment disorders. Others may not survive the accident, leaving their families to cope with loss of companionship and grief.

The financial consequences of these accidents may seem minor in comparison, but having medical bills to pay can create large amounts of stress. The problem is even worse when the victim is unable to work during the recovery period or passes away. The stress and anxiety involved in struggling to make ends meet is no minor consequence.
