Next, consider the relief of discovering that your child would survive but then the sadness of realizing that he or she would be hospitalized for months to recover from the injuries—and that your child may not recover at all.
Parents and grandparents have written to LawyersandSettlements to share stories about their children's ordeals. From months in the hospital to repeated surgeries, these children have been through a lot after their Yamaha Rhino rolled over. Some were unable to walk for a long time because of injuries to their legs and feet. Some required months and months of rehabilitation to use their limbs properly again. Some had serious injuries, such as lisfrank breaks (where bones across the top of the foot are broken) and elbows bent backwards.
Imagine how painful such injuries would feel as an adult and then try to imagine how they would feel to a child, or how devastating it would be to learn that you may never fully recover from your injuries. Worse, not all children survive Yamaha rollovers. There have been reports of some deaths related to Rhino ATV accidents. Some of those who died were children and some died even though they were wearing their seatbelt.
