ATV Accidents in Riverside

By Michael R. Young   Nov. 5, 2010 11:08a

All terrain vehicle (ATV) accidents are a common occurrence in the Riverside and San Bernardino counties. The deserts, mountains and wide open spaces throughout the Inland Empire are perfect terrain for recreational vehicles. With the number of ATV enthusiasts growing every year, so do the injuries inherent to the sport. In the past five years, all terrain vehicle related injuries have doubled. The number of ATV injuries requiring a trip to the emergency room has also increased by 100 percent. Incurring an injury or wrongful death as a result of an ATV accident is pretty scary when considering the fact that ATV's weigh between 500 and 1,000 pounds and many of them, can travel up to 75 miles per an hour.

In 1988 the United States government stopped the manufacture of three wheeled models due to their safety hazards. Although production was halted, many three wheeled ATV's are still in operation today and the risk of an accident with a three wheeled ATV is nearly twice that of a four wheeled ATV model.

ATV Injuries

Injuries or even wrongful death can be sustained in an ATV accident for a variety of reasons. In an ATV accident; careless driving, rollovers, driving while intoxicated, defective products by the manufacturer and crashes can all potentially cause injuries or death to the riders. These accidents can bring about catastrophic injuries such as: traumatic brain injuries, spinal cord injuries, paraplegia, quadriplegia, skull fractures, amputation and even death.
