ATV Accidents In Texas
Across the nation, Texas maintains the most fatalities for ATV accidents. Between 2013 and 2017, 70 people lost their lives in these horrific incidents. Unfortunately, hundreds more are left to deal with spinal cord injuries, broken bones, and other life-altering injuries.
Those injured in four-wheeler accidents are often forced to pay thousands of dollars in medical treatment for injuries sustained in the collisions. In addition to dealing with the overwhelming costs for treatment, victims suffer excruciating pain throughout their recovery. This is especially true for small children injured in these collisions.
