Third Trial Verdict in Favor of Yamaha; Jury Finds No Product Defect with Yamaha Rhino
A jury in San Bernardino County, California has rejected the plaintiff’s claims and awarded no damages today in this case involving an accident on a Yamaha Rhino.
This follows another jury decision in favor of Yamaha on July 26, 2010 in a case in Orange County, California, and is the third time a jury has rejected plaintiff’s claims regarding the Rhino’s design, finding no defect in the Rhino.
The jury made a decision based on the facts. The testimony and evidence during the trial showed that this unfortunate incident had nothing to do with the design of the product.
Yamaha is saddened whenever anyone is injured in an accident involving a Yamaha product and this incident underscores the importance of following the safety guidelines posted on the Rhino and in the owner’s manual, and to always operate the products in a safe and responsible manner.
Drivers and passengers should wear helmets, protective gear including over-the-ankle foot wear, and the vehicle’s three-point seat belts at all times.
The Rhino is a safe and useful off-road vehicle that has won virtually every “first in class” award and top safety ratings in independent reviews since its introduction.
Yamaha stands firmly behind the Rhino and will continue to vigorously defend the product. To learn more about the Yamaha Rhino, visit our website www.truthaboutrhino.com
