ATV’s, all-terrain vehicles, are quite common in Wisconsin for recreation and work for farm and land owners. They usually have three or four wheels and are capable of reaching speeds up to 95 mph.
Unfortunately, there are hundreds of injuries and deaths each year from ATV accidents. In the last decade, the use of ATV’s, especially in minors, has increased while the design of ATV’s has made them larger, faster and more powerful bringing greater risk to the driver. Severe trauma to the head and spine resulting from ATV accidents has escalated dramatically in the past few years.
Those drivers not wearing helmets and involved in ATV accidents have a much higher risk of neurological injury than those wearing helmets since ATV’s offer little to no protection in an accident. The estimated national costs of ATV associated injuries are $3.24 billion annually.
Common ATV Accidents Include:
- Collision with stationary objects
- Collision with other vehicles
