ATV Racing Injury
Movies have made the idea of racing in cars popular again. The idea of someone getting in a souped up car, revving loudly as they stare down their opponent is enough to make anyone excited and anxious. But those are movies and this is real life. Laws on the subject vary greatly from state to state but racing is generally an unsafe and illegal practice. Of course, there are plenty of legal outlets available for people who would like to engage in a sport like this. But sometimes people want to literally go off-road.

Each year, over 800 people are killed in an ATV accident. The biggest causes for accidents are inexperienced and reckless behavior, such as racing. Because these vehicles have become more popular in the past 10 years, analysts expect that this number may increase before long. Racing an ATV could result in life changing injuries such as:
Unless it's happening on a closed and supervised course that is specifically made to host racing, off road racing isn't a good idea. It is dangerous, inconsiderate and could leave many hurt in the process. There is no reason that a victim should have to suffer the consequences of someone else's recklessness. The conditions above could take years to treat or could require treatment and assistance for the rest of a lifetime.
Aside from the emotional and physical trauma that this could cause, it could also be very expensive. The medical costs could climb dramatically and make for a very difficult financial situation. Don't be a victim. The burden doesn't have to be yours alone.
