Rollovers causing serious injuries and deaths have long been a known issue with All-Terrain Vehicles, also known as ATVs. There are many serious injury and fatal ATV accidents across the United States each year, especially in Texas. The Yamaha Rhino, a 4-wheel “side by side” model, has been the subject of a number of lawsuits where rollovers result in serious injuries including paralysis and death. But the Yamaha Rhino is not the only one. Other ATV models made by different manufacturers have also been the subject of lawsuits based on product defects that create an unacceptable risk of rollover resulting in permanent disabling injuries such as paraplegia or quadriplegia, and even death.

Drive for ATV Innovation and Profits Can Have Tragic Human Costs

Off-road and all-terrain vehicles (ATVs, also sometimes referred to as UTVs or ROVs), have risen in popularity and undergone many product innovations since their introduction in the 1970s. The market for these vehicles is highly competitive, with major automobile, motorcycle, snowmobile and engine manufacturers such as Yamaha, Honda and Suzuki competing for market share.

ATV safety has long been an important and much-debated issue. Legal arguments to establish liability in defective product cases include design defects manufacturing defects, and marketing defects which can exist when a manufacturer knew about safety problems but failed to adequately warn consumers of the danger.
