Utility Vehicle & Golf Cart Accidents
Utility vehicles such as All Terrain Vehicles (ATVs) are 3 or 4 wheeled motorized vehicles used for off-road riding and have gained in popularity in the last two decades. In many ways, these vehicles are ideal for recreation, rescue efforts, and quick, easy transportation in off-road areas. Unfortunately however, over 6,000 fatalities occurred from injuries associated with ATVs in the last two decades, according to the Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC). Tragically, approximately 30% of all the people involved in ATV accidents are children.
Because three-wheeled ATVs put so many people in the hospital, the ATV companies, under pressure from the federal government, decide to stop production of three-wheeled ATVs but there were still millions of these unsafe three-wheeled models being used. Many of these extremely dangerous ATVs remain in use today.
