ATV Accidents in Georgia

Though ATV accidents do not happen as commonly as other accidents on our roads, they tend to lead to some of the most extensive harm when they do occur. This is due to the fact that ATV riders have no protection from harm in the event of an accident. There are many common reasons for ATV accidents, including some of the following: 

  • Driver distractions
  • Drunk or drugged driving 
  • Speeding
  • Fatigued driving
