13 Year Old Boy Killed Riding ATV Without Helmet or Seatbelt

My friend and avid all terrain vehicle rider Jim Coughlin sent me a sad story about a Knox, New York (near Albany) boy who was killed yesterday while riding an ATV. The ATV was apparently being ridden by two teenage boys, neither of whom was wearing a helmet or using a seat belt. The ATV had just been purchased that same day by the boys’ parents and grandparents.

These vehicles are powerful and can be dangerous if not ridden properly. It’s just foolish to ride one without a helmet. Parents simply cannot let their children ride unattended and untrained. Far too many deaths and tragic injuries have been caused by inexperienced riders. Be careful out there.

About This Blog

The title of this blog reflects my attitude toward those government agencies and insurance companies that routinely mistreat injured or disabled people. As a Dallas, Texas lawyer, I've spent more than 45 years trying to help those poor folk, and I have been frustrated daily by the actions of the people on the other side of their claims. (Sorry if I offended you...)
