ATVs, or “all terrain vehicles”, are great for exploring the great outdoors and going off-road. However, accidents can happen to you while you are riding on an ATV. Over the last 30 years, there have been over 10,000 cases of deaths reported related to ATVs. In 2015, almost 100,000 people were sent to the hospital for injuries sustained while on an ATV. Some of these injuries include injuries to the brain, spine and neck and others. (https://injury.findlaw.com/car-accidents/atv-injuries-and-accidents.html)
On average from 2010-2013, there were over 500 adult deaths and almost 80 child deaths reported. In most cases, these deaths happened on paved roads. In 2016, over 100,000 people were injured in an ATV accident. (https://onsafety.cpsc.gov)
If you get hurt in an ATV accident and need to see a doctor, it is probably going to be quite expensive. In one case in Alaska, six people were seriously injured to the point of being completely incapacitated. They needed over $10 million dollars of medical care.( https://injury.findlaw.com/car-accidents/atv-injuries-and-accidents.html )
