ATV Accidents (All Terrain Vehicles)

Honda designed the first all terrain vehicle (ATV) in the late 1960’s as a three wheel tricycle configuration. The industry standard adopted this three wheeled design through 1987. In 1971 the first United States’ ATV sale was consummated and thus began the ATV popularity. Soon Yamaha, Kawasaki, Suzuki and others joined the ATV manufacturing band wagon. With the increase in popularity of ATVs, so came a tremendous amount of ATV accidents and injuries. The Consumer Products Safety Commission (CPSC) launched an investigation into ATV safety, noting that 2.4 million ATVs were in use in the United States. Alarmingly, 239,000 injuries and almost 600 deaths were associated with the popular ATV. Based on the CPSC report, the United States Justice Department filed suit, contending the ATVs violated the Consumer Product Safety Act. ATV manufacturers soon agreed to cease production of the three wheel ATV cited by experts as flawed in design due to its instability. Unfortunately, many of the three-wheel designed ATVs remain in use because no recall was issued for the 2.4 million produced before the 1987 agreement to stop future production. The four wheel model ATV produced currently helps stabilize the vehicle and therefore is considered far safer. Manufacturers of dangerous products must be held accountable in order to be swayed that consumer safety is always more important than profits. Designing vehicles without noting safety defects is unacceptable. If you believe you received injuries from a faulty designed product, such as a three-wheeled ATV, contact an Owen, Patterson & Owen attorney. We help victims receive just compensation for their injuries and property damage.
