Hundreds of people have been hurt or killed in Yamaha Rhino rollover accidents. The Yamaha Rhino is an all-terrain vehicle or ATV, which is a vehicle used for “off-road” riding. Many ATV’s are susceptible to accidents, and many of those accidents result in serious and potentially life-threatening head or spinal cord injuries. Children are particulary vulnerable to fatal injuries in Yamaha Rhino accidents. Some consumer advocates say that Yamaha Rhinos are more prone to accidents and injuries, due to its defective design. Examples of the Yamaha Rhino design defects include top heaviness, extremely narrow tires and lack of leg protection. Many victims of Yamaha Rhino accidents sustain broken or crushed legs, feet or ankles. Despite the large number of accidents, Yamaha has not recalled the Rhino, but instead has offered some free modifications to Rhino owners. It remains unclear whether these modifications will reduce the number of accidents and injuries related to the Yamaha Rhino.
