ATVs or all-terrain vehicles are popular for traveling off-road for pure enjoyment or sport, yet these terrain vehicles can be dangerous when not used safely. With places like the Everglades, hundreds of miles of sandy beaches, and commercial dirt bike courses, Florida is a haven for ATV enthusiasts. The concern is that The Sunshine State ranks in the top 10 in the country for ATV deaths, many of which could be prevented by following some safety protocols. According to the Florida Highway Safety and Motor Vehicles, Florida had 20 ATV deaths and 108 injuries reported in one year. 32 out of 40 drivers occupying a moped or ATV at the time of the fatal crash were not wearing a helmet.
If you are involved in an ATV accident it is important to get medical help as soon as possible, to collect information from all those involved or present, to call the police, to file a report, and to contact a personal injury lawyer.
