Student Dies in ATV Accident Near Missouri

A seemingly innocent ATV ride turned deadly Friday afternoon. Students were not in school due to a previously scheduled in-service day. While off school, a group of Kansas students decided to go ATV riding on private property in Linn County, Kansas, which is near the Missouri state line. A 16 year-old student died in the all terrain vehicle (ATV) accident and four other students were seriously injured and taken to a local hospital. While the details of the accident are not yet available because no one involved was able to comment, it is clear that the accident was a serious one.
As a Missouri personal injury attorney, I have represented several people who have been injured in ATV accidents. Sometimes, the manufacturer of the ATV is to blame because the all terrain vehicle speeds or slows unexpectedly or easily flips over. This is known as a product liability case against the manufacturer. Other times, the accident is a result of circumstances similar to those found in a Missouri car crash case – driver inattention or distraction. ATV accidents are becoming all too familiar in Missouri and nationwide as recently covered by ABC News.
If you or someone you know have been injured in an ATV accident, much like a car accident, it is crucial that you retain an attorney immediately. Not only can the St. Louis Missouri accident attorney guide you through the process and answer any questions you may have, he/she can also collect key evidence that may quickly become destroyed if not requested immediately.
