Texas ATV Accidents Lawyer For Injured People
Not only can this lead to criminal charges, but it can cause injuries to passengers or other ATV drivers in the vicinity. Finally, many people like to get out and “let loose” behind the wheel of an ATV and may engage in reckless behavior they would not ordinarily engage in with a normal car, for instance, by driving at breakneck speeds or taking sharp turns without braking. This can lead to issues for other drivers on the course or even passengers in the reckless driver’s ATV, who can be thrown from the vehicle and suffer serious injuries or even death as a result of one person taking things too far.
Common Types of Injuries in ATV Accidents
When ATVs, dirt bikes, or four wheelers are involved in crashes, injuries can be serious. Some are even fatal. Typically, a rider’s body is exposed with little protection in the event of a crash. Despite their relatively small size, some of these vehicles can reach high speeds, which enhances the possibility of serious injury in a crash. Additionally, these vehicles often are operated in places where the environment presents hazards such as boulders or fallen trees. Some commonly seen injuries in ATV and other recreational accidents include:
- Traumatic brain injury
- Spinal cord injuries or paralysis
- Herniated discs in the back or neck
- Broken bones
- Soft tissue injuries
- Bruises, cuts, and scrapes
