Sacramento Off-Road and Recreational Vehicle Accident Lawyers
More Than 35 Years Of Experience Handling Complex Accident Claims
According to the Consumer Products Safety Commission (CPSC), more than 2,500 people died while using off-highway vehicles between 2015 and 2017. From 2015 through 2019, CPSC estimates there were 524,600 injuries that required visits to emergency centers in the USA, all arising out of the use and operation of these vehicles.
The most common cause of death was associated with collisions or roll-over events. The manufacturers of these off-highway vehicles escape rigorous scrutiny in these deaths because driver error is the presumed cause. Major manufacturers like Polaris will often dispatch their own team of investigators to the scene to gather evidence long before any litigation commences. In the environment of an off-road recreational activity, it is standard operating procedure for manufacturers and their attorneys to blame the victim for driving too fast, turning too sharp, or misusing an off-road vehicle that is supposed to be designed for use in rough terrain.
The attorneys of Dreyer Babich Buccola Wood Campora have learned not to presume the operator is at fault. In their prosecution of claims for serious injury and wrongful death against major manufacturers of these products, our attorneys have shown product defects in design and manufacture that have resulted in a loss of stability, or even spontaneous fires, in these vehicles. Taking on these manufacturers is complex litigation requires specialized knowledge of how these machines work. It also takes an ability to identify and bring in qualified experts to assess and identify design and manufacturing defects. Our lawyers bring these skills to every off-highway products case we take on.
THE POLARIS RZR IS A SPECIAL FOCUS FOR THIS FIRM
Polaris has recalled hundreds of thousands of utility vehicles, including over 130,000 RZRs, between 2013 and 2016 because those vehicles have a record of catching on fire during normal use. Polaris continues to manufacture and sell these vehicles despite the risk of fire, exposing drivers and passengers alike to serious injury and death. We have successfully prosecuted numerous cases against Polaris related to fires and for rollover cases in the Ranger line.
For example, we have achieved:
- Confidential settlements in Polaris wrongful death and burn cases involving sudden ignition fires
- Multiple confidential settlements in Polaris RZR cases where our clients suffered brain injury and significant physical injuries
