ATVs Pose “High Risk” of Injury and Death for Children


According to a study published in the November 24th online edition of the journal Pediatrics, “riding ATVs poses high risks of injury or death for children and teens.” The study, conducted in part by researchers at University of Iowa Carver College of Medicine in Iowa City, found that 95 percent of all ATV-related deaths were suffered by children riding adult-sized vehicles.
The study’s authors note that adult supervision is key to helping prevent serious injury or death. However, they also note that, “engineering improvements in safety, such as shorter seats and requirements to meet stability and crashworthiness standards, would help prevent injuries.”
All ATV Accidents deserve a full investigation from an experienced personal injury attorney. The attorneys at our firm have the resources necessary to identify all causes of an accident and the tenacity required to help victims get proper compensation.
