Being injured as a result of an accident can be incredibly difficult to deal with. Unfortunately, teens often suffer severe injuries and accidents that require medical care. When ATVs are involved in accidents, there is a significant chance that victims will be ejected and suffer debilitating and life-threatening injuries. Common injuries that are reported in this type of accident include:
- Compound fractures: Thousands of people are left with serious broken bones after car crashes that take place in our state every year. ATV accidents increase the chances of victims suffering these injuries due to the fact that they can be thrown from their vehicles and strike other objects, such as trees. Compound fractures can be incredibly debilitating and require surgery.
- Spinal cord injuries: Spinal cord injuries can result in some form of paralysis. Unfortunately, we see many people left with serious spinal cord injuries that require extensive medical treatment. Victims who suffer some spinal cord injuries may have to go through therapy and rehabilitation for several months or even years after their accident.
- Neck and soft tissue injuries: These injuries can be incredibly debilitating. Unfortunately, we see many people left was serious neck and soft tissue injuries following accidents. Whiplash and other soft tissue injuries can limit a victim’s range of motion and result in overwhelming pain and suffering.
