Polaris Recalls Potentially Dangerous ATV Model

The product liability lawyers at Finch McCranie, LLP pay close attention to the recall of dangerous products that can lead to the wrongful death of innocent people. This week, in cooperation with the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission, Polaris Industries has issued a voluntary recall of approximately 8,500 all-terrain vehicles because of a potentially dangerous steering problem, caused by a defective and dangerous front-end component. The recall applies to 2009-2010 models of the Polaris Sportsman ATV. Although there have been no reported injuries to date, there have been 19 reported incidents involving the ATV. According to Polaris the front suspension ball joint could separate from the steering knuckle, causing the rider to loose the ability to steer the ATV. Depending on the circumstances, if this occured, it could result in the operator being seriously injured or it could result in the wrongful death of the rider.
Anyone who owns a 2009-2010 Polaris Sportsman is encouraged to return it to the closest dealer who will make the necessary repairs free of charge.
