The Carolinas have a beautiful countryside where many residents have the opportunity year-round to ride their ATVs through scenic trails and farmland. ATVs are recreational vehicles and, when operated properly, can make for a fun day outdoors. However, ATVs are not equipped with seat belts, air bags or other safety attachments, meaning fun family outings using these recreational vehicles can turn deadly if not operated properly. According to the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission, 25% of the more than 100,000 ATV-related injuries that resulted in a hospital visit involved victims under the age of 16.

We have handled ATV accidents involving cars, other ATVs and single ATV collisions involving injuries to passengers. The majority of the ATV accidents I have handled were due to inexperience, an underage driver, horseplay or intoxication,” Herb Auger states.
