Rhino ATV Rollovers

Houston, Texas Yamaha Rhino Rollover Attorneys Handling Defective ATV Cases Nationwide

The Yamaha Rhino 660 and Rhino 450 ATVs suffer from design defects that make them prone to rollovers. Both Yamaha Rhino ATV models are equipped with tires that are too thin for the top-heavy vehicles. As a result, both are prone to rollovers at relatively low rates of speed. The Yamaha Rhino also lacks adequate leg protection, leading to crushed legs, ankles feet — even death — in rollover accidents. While Yamaha has taken steps to warn people of the dangers associated with the Rhino ATV, the information sent to owners and the modifications offered by Yamaha do not address the fundamental design flaws responsible for causing these injuries.

We consult design engineers and safety experts to detail the design defects that are responsible for our client's injuries.

Holding Yamaha Financially Responsible

Yamaha could have voluntarily recalled the Rhino ATV once it became apparent that people were getting injured and killed in rollover accidents. Yamaha could have initiated design alterations once their own testing revealed the extent to which it was prone to rollovers. They chose to do neither. There is an issue of foreseeability: did Yamaha have information that allowed them to foresee the dangers associated with their product? Our attorneys, working with experts and company documents, argue that they did. In failing to recall or modify the design of the Rhino ATV Yamaha is guilty of violating a duty of care toward others.
