ATV accidents can be serious

Many people in the Cary area own an ATV and enjoy using them on their property and ATV trails. ATVs are wonderful vehicles that can be used in many ways, from having fun to getting chores done. Most of the time people are able to use ATVs safely, but occasionally a serious accident occurs.

An ATV accident can be a serious affair. In 2015, the Consumer Product Safety Commission estimated that nearly 98,000 people went to the emergency room because of an injury caused by an ATV. One of the more serious injuries a person can suffer because of an ATV accident is a traumatic brain injury. Many times, during an accident, a person is thrown from an ATV and hits their head. A person can also be thrown from an ATV or pinned underneath one. Besides a brain injury, a person can suffer broken bones, internal injuries, neck injuries and spinal cord injuries, among other injuries.

If an ATV accident was caused by negligence, a victim may want to get more information about personal injury law options. Doing so can help a victim review the circumstances surrounding the accident and determine how to proceed. An ATV accident often involves serious injuries, which can result in months of rehabilitation and mounting medical expenses. Compensation may be available for medical expenses, pain and suffering, lost wages and other damages.

Although ATVs are very popular in North Carolina, they can also cause serious injuries. If an accident occurs because of a negligent driver, it is important to hold that driver accountable for the mistake.
