No one expects a ride on an all-terrain vehicle (ATV) to end in a personal injury disaster. For hundreds of victims in Arizona each year, however, this is the reality. Recreational vehicles and activities come with inherent risks to personal safety.
Dangerously designed vehicles, manufacturer defects and lack of rider instructions can increase the likelihood of accidents. Combined with negligent ATV owners and operators, the risk of getting into an accident can be high.
