All-terrain vehicles (ATVs) are popular among teens and adults. However, one should never underestimate the serious risk involved in owning and operating an ATV. Even if you take all of the proper safety precautions, some of these vehicles are manufactured and sold with mechanical defects. There is nothing riders can do to prevent hazards from presenting themselves. This can result in costly property damage, personal injury, and in extreme, unfortunate cases, even death.
Every year, there may be any number of ATV recalls issued for nearly every major manufacturer in the business. As companies try to cut costs, it is inevitable that mistakes are going to occur. However, this simply is not a viable excuse for releasing a defective product, and it does not let ATV manufacturers off the hook when injury results from normal, appropriate use of their all terrain vehicles.
