Dear Subscriber,

ATVs have become wildly popular in the U.S., with more than 11 million ATVs and 35 million riders. Unfortunately, ATV accidents and injuries are all too common. Here are safety tips and resources you might consider for the ATV riders in your life.

Johnson & Johnson's Depuy ASR Hip Implant was recalled August 2010. This defective device had been surgically implanted in over 90,000 patients before J&J acknowledged the outcries of the medical community and pulled the ASR from the market. Recipients of the ASR have had to have the implants removed due to metallosis, chronic infection and device failure, resulting in the need for revision surgery.

Goldberg-Legal has successfully represented dozens of men and women who have had the ASR implanted and surgically revised/removed.

Relaxed State, Local Laws Part of the Problem

Roads a Deadly Hazard for ATVers

Where does your state rank for ATV fatalities? Check here.

Start your engines! Summer is here, and the longer, warmer days bring plenty of opportunity for ATV off-road recreation. As the popularity of all-terrain vehicles (ATVs) has risen to an all-time high, so too have deaths and injuries. Despite warnings from manufacturers, federal agencies, and consumer and safety advocates that ATVs are unsafe on roadways, they’re showing up there more and more, partly because of relaxed state and local laws. The result? Nearly two-thirds of fatal ATV crashes occur on public or private roads. Yet, ATVs continue to share the roads with cars and trucks in cities, towns and counties across the country. Before you strap on a helmet and turn the key, you should know the risks associated with these powerful vehicles. Stats, Safety Tips Ahead >>>
