As we have written in a previous issue, one of the most dangerous ATVs on the market is the Yamaha Rhino. Since the Yamaha Rhino All Terrain Vehicle was introduced to the market in the United States in 2003, as reported, it has caused a large number of devastating rollover accidents leaving adults and a number of children seriously injured, permanently maimed and in some instances dead. The popularity of ATV’s has greatly increased the number of accidents occurring. The defective Yamaha Rhino ATV makes the overall ATV picture much worse. As we have reported, these design defects include:
When these design defects are coupled with a powerful engine, fast acceleration and quick turning radius, the Rhino can become very unstable, even at slow speeds. In addition to the aforementioned design defects, the Yamaha Rhino provides inadequate protection for drivers’ and passengers’ limbs in the event of an accident. The original design was manufactured without doors of any kind. The design resulted in arms, legs, and bodies being crushed when the defectively designed ATV rolled over. Consumers need to be very concerned if they have purchased a Rhino, especially if children ride in it. We are looking at potential claims relating to Rhino crashes and roll-overs. If you have any questions concerning the Rhino problems, feel free to call Mike Andrews, Cole Portis or Dana Taunton at 800-898-2034 or 334-269-2343. They will be glad to assist you.
