ATV Rollover Injury
Few things sound as exciting as driving off-road in a cool, huge ATV. Speeding through the mud at daring speeds on interesting courses just for the fun of it sounds like a great way to breakaway from everyday life. It is a hobby that has become more and more popular in the past 10 years with an estimated growth in the following years. But like all daring hobbies, offroad driving could prove to be very dangerous and could lead to a variety of devastating injuries.

According to the Consumer Product Safety Commission, over 2,328 ATV deaths occurred in a recent three year period. As this hobby becomes more popular, so do the chances of fatalities and accidents. An ATV rollover accident can occur because of the following:
In a recent five year period, over 450,000 ATV injuries have occurred across the country. While off-road driving in an ATV may be a risky hobby, consumers buy ATVs trusting that they have been put through the highest standards of testing to ensure that they can endure such intense sports. They don't imagine that a manufacturer would overlook something that could put them in danger of injury or even death. If a company fails to warn about any defects that lead to injury, they could be held liable for any damages.
Aside from the obvious physical and mental pain that could come with being injured in one of these accidents, there is also the financial aspect. Medical bills and treatments could add up very quickly and make for a very difficult financial situation. Paying the bills on time and even making rent could be much more difficult and make a bad situation worse. Time is of the essence.
