ATV Accidents in Georgia
Though ATV-related accidents are not the most common types of accidents on our roads, they do lead to some of the most extensive harm in the event of a collision. In 2015 alone, it was reported that over 97,000 ATV injuries resulted from accidents on roads in the U.S. Many of these accidents lead to injuries like brain trauma, broken bones, organ damage, and more. If you have been harmed in an ATV-related accident and believe that another party is to blame, you have many options moving forward.
Because ATVs travel at high speeds, are heavyweight and offer no protection to those involved in accidents, they are known for being inherently dangerous vehicles on our roads. When a victim is involved in an ATV accident, especially with a larger vehicle, they could be thrown from their vehicle and sustain some of the most severe damages. Many people each year will also lose their lives as a result of these collisions.
