New York ATV Accident Brain Injury
Our New York ATV Accident Brain Injury Lawyer staff at Stephen Bilkis & Associates, PLLC estimates that there are as many as 300 fatal injuries per year as a result of an ATV accident. These all-terrain vehicles can cause many serious and debilitating types of injury, including brain injury or permanent paralysis due to a spinal injury.
Due to the increasing popularity of these recreational vehicles, there is an increase in the number of accidents involving ATVs. Riders can suffer from an injury if they are not trained to properly drive or handle the ATV or if they ride without appropriate safety gear. Although these vehicles are marketed as an off-road vehicle, many serious and fatal accidents have occurred when a driver has taken the ATV on a road. In some cases, a car or truck may not anticipate an ATV being driven on a road and an accident can result. In other instances, an accident may occur when an ATV driver did not anticipate changes in someone’s property, such as a steep incline. If you are injured due to an ATV accident, it is important for you to contact our New York Injury Lawyer to discuss you legal options. You may be able to receive compensation for your injuries, if they accident was caused by someone else’s negligence, carelessness or recklessness.
Most accidents and severe injury occur when an ATV overturns. This can cause the driver and passengers a severe injury such as a brain injury, spinal injury, skull fracture, paralysis or possibly cause a wrongful death. While safety gear, such as a helmet, can increase protection from an injury, it does not guarantee a severe injury will not occur. A traumatic brain injury, such as a concussion, brain damage, skull injury, brain swelling or other head injury, can result in drastic life changes.
