ATV Injuries in Children

ATV Injuries in Children

I’m Ed Smith, a Stockton Personal Injury Lawyer. Extreme sports are an excellent source of both exercise and entertainment in this country. However, due to the nature of these sports, it is critical to ensure that proper safety precautions are taken. Recently, a review article was published that discussed some of the injuries that children can have as a result of ATVs and the implications for these injuries going forward.

The article published by a team of medical specialists discussed some of the serious injuries that children are prone to sustain while riding an ATV. Like car accidents, the severity of the accidents that children sustain while riding an ATV can vary. Some kids may only suffer scrapes and bruises as a result of a crash. However, like cars, ATVs are also prone to rollover accidents. When ATVs roll over, there isn’t any metal frame to separate the rider from the ground. As a result, children can sustain traumatic brain injuries. These happen because the head is the highest point over the ATV and often strikes the ground first in an ATV accident. The article also discussed that helmets can sharply decrease the chances of suffering a traumatic brain injury in a crash.
