When people think of Florida traffic accidents, they tend to think of cars, trucks, motorcycles, and other common types of vehicles. However, these are not the only types of accidents that take place in Florida. ATVs and other vehicles can also be involved in crashes and those crashes can be quite severe in nature. An ATV often rolls over after the crash, which can result in further risk of injury to the riders. Each crash must be carefully investigated by authorities in order to determine which driver should be held responsible.
