I just returned from a case in the upstate mountain district of Pennsylvania and was surprised to read about the number of ATV accidents and resulting catastrophic injuries in the daily newspapers, as well as on television news reports.
As an experienced Pennsylvania rollover and ATV accident lawyer, I am all too familiar with the dangers of ATVs which cause catastrophic injuries and fatalities. Unfortunately, Pennsylvania holds the distinction of being the number one state in the country for ATV deaths. The majority of the accidents on ATVs come from inexperienced operators, including children, who were riding vehicles too big and powerful for their size. Often the accidents involve the use of alcohol. Almost 40% of all ATV deaths and injuries occur to children under the age of 16.
Our experience and investigation has revealed that many ATVs suffer from inherent design defects and are simply unsafe even under the best of circumstances. In one of our cases, we were able to demonstrate that even trained, skilled stunt drivers had accidents when filming a commercial for the manufacturer.
