All-terrain vehicles, or ATVs, are notorious for being dangerous. Due to the temperate weather conditions in Phoenix, Arizona is a popular destination for off-roading enthusiasts. From 2007 to 2010, there were almost 60 ATV fatalities in Arizona. Tragically, children are involved in close to one-third of all ATV-related deaths and hospital emergency room injuries.
If you or a loved one has been injured in an off-roading accident due to the actions or negligence of another, you may be eligible to pursue compensation for any damages from the accident, including current and future medical expenses, lost wages, pain and suffering, and emotional anguish.

Common Off-Roading Accident Injuries
When drivers of all-terrain vehicles are involved in an accident, there is a high probability of a serious or fatal injury occurring. Oftentimes, an ATV accident includes a collision with non-moving objects or other vehicles, rollover accidents or cases where a driver or passenger unexpectedly falls off the vehicle.
Some of the most common and devastating injury experienced by victims of off-roading accidents include:
- Spinal Cord Injuries
- Traumatic Brain Injuries
- Skull Fractures
- Broken Bones
- Scars and Disfigurement
- Loss of Limbs
- Back and Neck Injuries
Instead of worrying about how you will be able to afford treatment of these serious injuries, you should be focused on recuperating.

Arizona Off-Roading Laws and Safety Tips
An off-road recreational motor vehicle refers to a motor vehicle that is intended exclusively for recreational non-highway all-terrain travel. Off-road vehicles are not permitted for use in construction, building trade, mining or agricultural purposes. Under Arizona law, any rider on an ATV who is under 18 years old must be wearing a helmet at all times when riding on public highways.
At Phillips Law Group, we are dedicated to the safety of Arizona residents. If you or your loved ones partake in off-roading activities, we urge you to keep the following safety tips in mind:
- Take a safety training course.
- Wear a helmet and other protective gear while riding.
- Do not use an ATV with more than one person on board, unless the vehicle is specifically designed to carry more than one passenger at a time.
- Do not use an ATV on a paved road.
- Never let a child drive or ride on an adult ATV.
- Do not drive an off-roading vehicle while under the influence of drugs or alcohol.
