ATV Accidents Are Preventable With Proper Supervision

We report about as many ATV accidents as we learn about. We do it because at one time the ATV manufacturers needed to be pushed by the legal community to make a safer vehicle. And while they have come a long way, we are still seeing too many fatal accidents. [In the days ahead we will report on another ATV accident leaving a young girl paralyzed from the waist down.] Many times what we see is a failure to properly supervise, although not always. In some accidents there is not much that can be done to avoid ... well, the unavoidable. Speed is often a key factor. And if adults are present speeds tend to come down dramatically. 

ATV Accidents Are Preventable With Proper Supervision

I have followed ATV accidents as a lawyer for over thirty-five years and most of these accidents are preventable when three things are true. Proper training, supervision and the driver following the rules of what they learned.
