Automobile drivers will often overlook motorcycles when they are driving.

Any and all of these mistakes can lead to a serious, life-threatening accident. According to the National Highway Transportation Safety Administration (NHTSA), a motorcycle crash is a complex event involving the interaction of human beings, one or more vehicles, and other environmental factors.

In fact, more than 80% of all reported motorcycle crashes result in injury or death to the motorcyclist. The motorcycle itself provides no injury protection to the rider or passenger.

  • Motorcycle Fatality in South Carolina Could Lead to Claim
  • Unfortunately, motor vehicle accidents are a daily occurrence, and even more terribly so, the results can be long-lasting, even tragic. One such…

Too many people are killed or seriously injured in ATV (All-Terrain Vehicle) accidents annually.

Residents and visitors to South Carolina often take to the trails on all-terrain vehicles for a day of enjoyment and excitement; however, when alcohol, inexperience, or improper maintenance become involved, a day on the trails can quickly turn into a nightmare. ATV accidents can lead to serious personal injury and even death.

A report published by the Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) concluded that ATV accidents resulting in serious injury or death has increased significantly in recent years. Other CPSC reports determined that more than a 145,000 serious injuries resulted from ATV accidents per year – an alarming 37% increase since 2001. The Commission has gone so far as to urge ATV manufactures’ to correct design flaws and to eliminate hazards inherent to these popular recreational and commercial vehicles. In fact, the government has established the ATV Safety Information Center in hopes of sharing information in hopes of reducing the number of injuries and deaths associated with ATVs. The Center also urges ATV manufacturers’ to share five simple but effectives "Rules of the Trail":

  • Do not drive ATVs on paved roads
  • Do not allow a child under 16 years of age to drive or ride large ATVs
  • Do not drive ATVs with two or more people onboard
  • Wear a helmet, eye protection, boots, gloves, long pants, and a long-sleeved shirt when driving an ATV
  • Complete a hands-on safety course before operating an ATV

Following these rules can help reduce the major causes of ATVs – or any other vehicle with similar high centers of gravity and narrow track width, which can cause the vehicle to flip over. These rules cannot prevent all ATV accidents caused by:

  • Impaired operators
  • Reckless driving
  • Faulty mechanical work
  • Poorly written or incomplete instructions and manuals
  • Inexperienced operators
  • Defective equipment
  • Manufacturing defects

In most cases, the injuries caused by ATVs are life threatening and can result in permanent damage to the body. The most common types of personal injuries include:

Too Little Too Late

The sheer number of ATV injuries has prompted some manufacturers to change their documentation or publish warnings. Unfortunately, those efforts have come far too late, and some are totally inappropriate. Some manufacturers have mailed customers revised warning labels regarding the roll over dangers. Other labels recommend that riders keep their hands and feet in the vehicle, but given that most ATVs do not have enclosed cages to protect riders, the advice is virtually useless.
