What Are The Types Of ATVs Most Commonly Involved In Accidents?

According to the ATV Safety Institute, an all-terrain vehicle is a motorized off-highway vehicle designed to travel on four-wheel highly inflated tires, with a seat designed to be straddled by the operator and handlebars to control steering.

Also referred to as a quad, a four-wheeler, or a Light Utility Vehicle (LUV), ATVs are made for one or two passengers and are manufactured in adult and youth models. All models are without seatbelts or rollbars.

Industry-wide, manufacturers halted production on three-wheel ATVs several years ago because of their instability and tendency to topple.

Riding ATVs to travel unpaved roads, farmlands, trails, and rocky, precipitous terrain is a fun adventure for some and a necessary mode of transportation for others.

With their ability to handle steep hills and maneuver over various conditions, ATVs are used for four-wheel recreational adventures and for helping people efficiently navigate arduous road conditions.

At the same time, these vehicles are commonly involved in serious and fatal accidents.

The Most Common ATV Accidents and Injuries

While ATVs are highly accommodating due to their maneuverability, this also means they are prone to accidents. Combine the open-air design with powerful engines, and a high center of gravity, ATVs can easily become unstable and have a high tendency to tip, roll or flip.

These incidents are likely to throw riders and passengers off, possibly even rolling on top of the victim. If the accident also involves a collision with a pedestrian or object, ramifications can be disastrous, causing serious injuries, emotional distress, and possible fatalities.

What Are the Most Common Causes of ATV Accidents?

There are many reasons why an ATV accident may occur. According to statistics of the ATV accidents that are reported, the most prevalent causes are:

  • Speeding — Excessive speeds can cause the ATV to tip, flip or roll, or result in an impact with stationary objects
  • Driving paved roads — Specifically designed for off-roading, ATVs handle poorly on pavement and can lose control easily
  • Passenger accidents — Particularly if the ATV is designed for only one rider, yet there are multiple riders at the time of the accident
  • Accidents involving children — Including minors that are inexperienced riders or if the minor is a passenger on an ATV. The American Academy of Pediatrics estimates that an average of 30 children are treated per day in the United States for ATV accident injuries. There are no federal regulations regarding the age of the driver of the ATV: it is left to each state to determine and set age requirement laws and regulations. Always check your state and local age requirements for up-to-date information.

What Are the Most Common Injuries Inflicted During ATV Accidents?

There is a long list of potential injuries and damages inflicted by ATV accidents. Here are some of the most common injuries associated with them.

  • Traumatic brain injuries and head injuries, including concussions, whiplash, or severe brain injuries and head traumas, can all impact your ability to function on a day-to-day basis.
  • Spinal cord injuries, including back injuries or acute spinal cord trauma that causes paralysis, can permanently affect your mobility and quality of life.
  • Broken bones or amputation of limbs requiring treatment from medical specialists, with extensive surgeries and prolonged rehabilitation
  • Burns or abrasions such as cuts, scratches, and bruises can result in permanent scarring or disfigurement and can require the services of a cosmetic surgeon to restore the victim to their previous appearance.

Determining Liability in an ATV Accident

Determining who is liable is a big part of the process of recouping your losses as an ATV accident victim. If you have a lawyer, they will review and investigate your claim to help determine all at-fault parties that may be liable.

Depending on the evidence available and the amount of potential culpability, in some claims, multiple parties are liable and can be held accountable jointly for owed compensation.

The CEO Lawyer ATV accident attorney can help you to create a plan to maximize your personal injury settlement and recover medical expenses, damages, and losses for pain and suffering.

Whether the accident involved you as the driver of the ATV or as a passenger, depending on the details of the incident, the liable party may be:

  • The ATV driver
  • The ATV owner
  • The ATV rental company
  • The owner of the land where the accident occurred (if permission to access was given)
  • The ATV manufacturer
  • Or any other party involved who contributed negligence

What Type of Damages Can Be Recovered In An ATV Accident Claim

Depending on your case, the extent of your injuries and damages suffered, the personal injury settlement may include compensation for any of the following:

  • Medical Expenses — All past, present, and future medical expenses, as applicable.
  • Lost Wages — Loss of income in the past, present, and future as a result of your accident, including instances where your injuries impact your ability to earn the same income as before.
  • Diminished quality of life — Including any mental health counseling necessitated as a result of the accident.
  • Pain and suffering — Both physical trauma and mental anguish caused by the stress of the accident.
  • Trauma associated with the loss — In the case of wrongful death, amputations, or loss of use of a limb or organ, the pain and emotional trauma of losing something or someone due to an ATV accident.
  • Personal property — Any personal property damages that occurred due to the accident.

Calculating the numeric value of your losses can be a complicated and arduous process. It takes time and dedication to factor in all of the many details that add up to the proper settlement, especially when projecting damages into the future.

Will Insurance Companies Cover Damages From My ATV Accident?

Whether the insurance company will willingly compensate you depends on the specifics of your unique losses, the factors of your accident, and the insurance policy coverages available.

Insurance companies may offer you compensation to quickly resolve your claim following an accident. While the initial settlement offer may be much less than what may be eligible to pursue in a claim, many victims feel pressured to accept these initial low offers.

It might be tempting to do so but proceed with caution, as it is typically in your best interest to request more money in order to cover all damages you have suffered.

How To Avoid ATV Accidents And Fatalities

These safety tips can help to reduce or avoid ATV accidents and injuries:

  • Wear a helmet — In a vast majority of ATV fatalities, the victim was not wearing a helmet.
  • Do not drive on pavement — Avoid driving ATVs on pavement, except at road crossings when traveling perpendicularly across the shortest path possible.
  • Supervise and train minors — While ATV riding often involves the entire family, the American Academy of Pediatrics recommends that no one under the age of 16 rides an ATV. Check local laws and guidelines before setting out on an ATV ride with a minor.
  • Check the size and model — Ride an appropriate size ATV. They are manufactured in adult and child models.
  • Limit the number of passengers — Limit the number of riders on the ATV: i.e., a one-person ATV should only have one person riding.
  • Wear appropriate clothing — Dressing in protective clothing can save you from severe injuries (while shorts and flip-flops cannot)
  • No alcohol consumption — Never ride under the influence of alcohol or drugs.
