Litchfield, NY – Child Killed & One Critical Following ATV Crash on Jones Rd

New York motor vehicle accidents are accountable for the deaths of at least 300 people across the state every year, according to official statistics. While numerous car crashes along average roads and highways are severe, most accidents that involve an off-road vehicle such as an ATV are almost always catastrophic. ATVs can reach high speeds and overturn quickly as they also offer less protection than other vehicles. Moving forward, when another person or entity causes your suffering, it is important to protect your rights as soon as possible.
