Why ATVs Are Dangerous

Many factors may contribute to the cause of an ATV accident; however, some of the most common injuries occur because of rollovers. ATVs are prone to rolling over because of their top-heavy nature and lack of roll-over bars or roofs. Serious injuries can occur, including head trauma, brain trauma and spinal injuries. In 2006, it was reported that more than 500 people had been killed in ATV accidents and roughly one-fourth of those victims were children. In 2007, nearly 40,000 children were treated in the emergency room as a result of ATV accidents and thousands of adults were seriously injured as well. In many cases, vehicles crushed lungs, suffocating individuals trapped underneath.

Many different scenarios can arise from these tragic accidents, and many ATV manufacturers and spokespeople blame human error the accidents.
