ATV Accidents in New York
In 2014, statistics showed that approximately 93,000 ATV-related accidents led to emergency room visits. These vehicles, which are commonly referred to as “quads” among teens and adults, are some of the most dangerous vehicles and prone to rollover events. Because they are such large and heavy machines but offer little in the way of protections, those involved in these accidents may suffer extreme harm. Especially when an ATV rolls over or someone is thrown from a vehicle, they could suffer a wide array of serious injuries such as head injuries, facial disfigurement, traumatic brain injuries, broken bones, and more. This is why it is important that injured victims have options as they move forward.
Because ATV accidents can be entirely complex due to the fact that they are so different from other types of accidents, it is important that you have a knowledgeable attorney on your side through every step of this difficult process. These accidents can be incredibly complex and leave you with a wide array of questions after you have received medical treatment and wonder what next steps you should be taking.
