ATV Accidents in Illinois
ATVs are a great pastime and provide recreation for many Illinois residents. However, when these vehicles are used incorrectly, they can leave riders vulnerable to suffering from serious injuries. Each year, an estimated 93,800 ATV injuries are treated in emergency rooms throughout the United States. An average of 500 to 600 people are killed in ATV accidents annually nationwide. The majority of deadly ATV collisions involve victims under the age of 16.
