New Lawsuits Add to Utility Terrain Vehicle Safety Concerns

Although utility terrain vehicles have long been a target of safety concerns, two recent injuries sustained by drivers and passengers of the model known as the Yamaha Rhino have added even more fuel to the fire. Critics claim that the Yamaha Rhino’s design is fundamentally flawed, with a top-heavy center of gravity that increases the risk of the vehicle flipping and rolling over. That’s exactly what happened in the cases that precipitated the two most recent lawsuits against Yamaha. In two separate incidents, an 11-year-old Tennessee girl and a 47-year-old Georgia man sustained serious injuries in rollover accidents.
