Utility Vehicle & Golf Cart Accidents
Utility vehicle and golf cart accidents may be more common than you think.
Utility vehicles, such as all-terrain vehicles (ATVs), are three- or four-wheeled motorized vehicles used for off-road riding. These vehicles 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, more than 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 — decided to stop production of three-wheeled ATVs. But there were still millions of these unsafe three-wheeled models being used. And many of these extremely dangerous ATVs remain in use today.McAleer Law: Expert ATV and Utility Vehicle Injury Attorneys in Atlanta
