Texas ATV Accident Lawyer Handles Texas ATV Accident Lawsuits by Texas ATV Accident Lawyer Jason S. Coomer
Some ATV contains multiple design flaws rendering them dangerously unstable and unduly prone to tipping and rolling over, even when driven at slow speeds on flat surfaces. These defects include a top-heavy design resulting in a high center of gravity, and a dangerously narrow track width. People that negligently give these vehicles to children and inexperienced drivers without warning of the risks may be negligent and liable for potential injuries or death caused by their negligence.

t is alleged that the Yamaha Rhino ATV contains multiple design flaws rendering it dangerously unstable and unduly prone to tipping and rolling over, even when driven at slow speeds on flat surfaces. These defects include a top-heavy design resulting in a high center of gravity, and a dangerously narrow track width.
Despite hundreds of Rhino rollover accidents, there has been
no formal recall of the vehicle by Yamaha. Instead, in
August 2007, Yamaha announced that it would install
half-doors and a passenger handhold for Rhinos manufactured
from 2004 through 2007. For the 2008 Rhino, Yamaha has added
half-doors and a handhold as standard equipment.
Yamaha has made no design changes to improve the stability or handling of the Rhino. Yamaha has neither acknowledged nor addressed the Rhino’s core stability problems. Tip overs and terrible accidents will continue to occur so long as the stability problems are not fixed.
Defective product claims are a result of our modern society. The mass production, marketing, and distribution of products now allows negligent, careless, and corrupt businesses to sell defective products to millions of people all over the World. Never in the past has there been such potential for one negligent, careless, or corrupt business to cause great harm to millions of people. Defective products can cause severe damages as can be seen by defective asbestos products, defective vehicles, defective appliances, defective toys, defective guns, cigarettes, defective tires, defective pet food, defective medications, and defective medical devices.
Product Liability Claims (Defective Product Claims)
Product liability claims arise when manufacturers, designers, or distributors produce or sell a dangerous and defective product to the public and this defective product injures, kills, or damages someone. The defective product has to be used for its intended purpose, but if it is and the dangerous product results in damages, serious injury, or death, a product liability claim arises. The most well know types of defective product claims include asbestos products, defective medications, defective medical devices, defective vehicles, and defective tires. However, more recently defective pet food and defective toys have come into the public notice.
These defective product claims include design defect claims, manufacturing defect claims, and failure to warn claims. Complicated product liability claims can sometimes have all three types of product liability claims in them depending on the defective product with which you are dealing.
Design Defect Claims (Defective Product Claims)
The design defect claims stem from products that are designed incorrectly such as some asbestos product claims, automobile defect claims, and gun claims. These design defect claims create products that are inherently defective. The classic example are the Pinto claims where the fuel tank was design incorrectly so that if it was hit from behind, the vehicle would explode.
