A man and three children were on an ATV in Middleburg, Florida, when it rolled over. The man and a girl were seriously injured and were taken to Shands Jacksonville Medical Center. Two boys on the ATV also suffered personal injuries and were taken to Orange Park Medical Center.
As Jacksonville injury lawyers, we see a lot of instances where ATVs are involved in accidents causing serious personal injury or death. An ATV has a high center of gravity and they have had problems with rollovers since they were first sold. Having four people on one ATV may have increased the possibility of the ATV flipping by making it even more top heavy.
Cases are often brought against ATV manufacturers for alleged defects causing rollover accidents.
