Dangers of ATV accidents
ATVs allow drivers to operate on all types of terrain and even go off road. But the dangers posed by these vehicles might be more than many people realize. Even the safest riders sometimes get hurt in ATV accidents.
Many people - especially insurance company investigators - automatically blame ATV riders for causing such crashes. But the reality is many ATV accidents happen for many other reasons. And in many cases, the operators did nothing wrong.
ATVs often roll over, resulting in serious injuries. These ATV rollover accidents sometimes occur due to manufacturer defects. The ATV may have been designed poorly and prone to tipping over. Another common cause of ATV rollover accidents: unmarked obstacles. Whatever the cause of your crash, we want to help you.

What to do after an ATV accident
If you are involved in an ATV accident, we strongly recommend taking the following steps to protect your safety and your rights.
- Seek immediate medical attention - If you cannot do so yourself, ask someone else to call 911 and ask them to send an ambulance.
- Call the police - This is especially important to do if another driver caused your crash.
- Get the other driver's personal information - If another driver caused your ATV accident, make sure you get the driver's full name, address, phone number and insurance information.
- Talk to witnesses - If someone saw your ATV accident, get their full name, address and phone number so investigators can talk to them later.
- Take pictures of your accident - Evidence builds strong cases. The more information you have to support your case, the stronger your claim.
- Call your insurance company - Tell them you've been in an ATV accident, but keep your comments to a minimum. Anything you say could potentially be used to deny your insurance claim.
