Over the past decade there has been a significant increase in the number of people participating in off road activities such as driving All Terrain Vehicles (or ATVs). Unfortunately, this uptick in the activity results in a significant amount of deaths and injuries due to ATV accidents.
According to a report by the Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) there were 12,391 ATV-related fatalities reported across the country occurring between 1982 and 2012. Nearly 350 of these fatalities occurred in Missouri. Other injuries that often occur as a result of an ATV accident include brain injuries, spinal injuries, bone fractures, neck and back injuries and more.
