Lawsuits Filed Against Yamaha in Multiple States

Due to the frequency of Yamaha Rhino accidents and the severity of the resulting lower leg injuries, lawsuits have been filed in a number of states. These lawsuits all allege serious design defects that may result from inadequate testing by the manufacturer.

In order to prove the defective nature of the Rhino, independent studies have been performed utilizing accepted automotive testing criteria. These tests demonstrate the propensity of the Yamaha Rhino to roll over when performing conventional maneuvers at speeds under 20 miles per hour. The tests also show that the driverís leg will involuntarily eject from the vehicle during a rollover accident. Neither the roll bar nor the seat belt provide any protection to the lower extremities, for either the driver or passenger. Yamaha continues to rely on its original testing to deny these claims.
