Phoenix-based Yamaha Rhino ATV Rollover Accident Lawyers Helping Victims in Arizona
The popularity of all terrain vehicles (ATVs) has risen dramatically over the past 10 years, and consequently so has the number of ATV accidents causing serious injuries and deaths. While many of these accidents can be attributed to user error and/or dangerous riding, some accidents can be directly linked to the defective design of the vehicle. One such vehicle is the Yamaha Rhino ATV.
The Yamaha Rhino ATV is Dangerous
The hazardous design of the Yamaha Rhino ATV has resulted in a disproportionate number of serious and fatal rollover accidents. The design elements causing the Yamaha Rhino to be susceptible to rollover include:
- Small tires
- High center of gravity
- Narrow wheel base / frame
Despite the obvious signs of rollover danger, Yamaha has failed to officially recall the Rhino ATV, even in the face of several personal injury and wrongful death claims finding fault with the defective design of the Rhino. In many of these lawsuits the passengers in the ATV were following all safety guidelines outlined by Yamaha and many experienced vehicle rollover while riding slowly on flat ground, which should never cause accidents of this nature. Yamaha has instead offered free installation of plastic doors and passenger handles to vehicles manufactured after 2004, doing little to reduce the likelihood of Rhino rollover accidents.
In Arizona the Phoenix-based lawyers of Phillips Law Group are dedicated to helping injured victims and grief stricken families obtain the financial compensation they deserve after a Yamaha Rhino ATV rollover accident.
Death and Serious Injury Caused by Yamaha Rhino ATV Rollover Accidents
The effects of Yamaha Rhino ATV rollover accidents have been devastating, leaving adults and numerous children severely injured, permanently disfigured, and even dead. Rollover accidents often pin victims beneath the vehicle, which can break bones, crush limbs, and damage vital organs. In some cases, victims are killed instantly due to the vehicle slamming down on top of them. Adding to the severity of these injuries is the fact that many of the locations where these vehicles are driven are far removed from immediate medical attention.
