Initially, Polaris denied there was a problem and appeared to take no action to make these vehicles safe or get them back for repair or replacement. In the past year, Polaris has issued a series of recalls for the RZR line, but, as of this writing, Polaris has not been entirely forthcoming as to why these tragic fires continue to occur.
We know from our years of doing battle with industry that there is always “more to the story” than the defendant will volunteer. Therefore, to get the best results for our clients, we also assembled an investigation team. Our investigation team conducted a national survey of companies that rent Polaris RZRs regarding these fires. We have contacted numerous eye-witnesses to Polaris RZR fires to learn their stories first hand. We have talked with government attorneys who have investigated forest fires believed to have been caused by Polaris machines. We have even communicated directly with Polaris about RZR fires.
Based on our investigation, EGC created a database of known fires involving Polaris UTV’s going back several years. Below are some photos and videos of some of the other Polaris RZR fires we have uncovered during our investigation.
