EGC In the News: Wrongful death lawsuit filed against Polaris over fatal ATV accident
Eisenberg, Gilchrist & Cutt filed a wrongful death lawsuit against Polaris after two women died in a fiery crash. The lawsuit alleges that the vehicle they were riding was not safe and that Polaris was negligent in its design of the all-terrain vehicle.
Attorney Eric Olson spoke with reporters from KSL about the incident:
"Right before they could get there, it burst into flames and there was nothing they could do. Everybody who was with Debbie and Destiny had to watch them burn to death."
Polaris has issued an estimated 300,000 recalls of their vehicles over the past few years, including one in March of 2017 for approximately 19,000 ATVs in order to address concerns that these vehicles posed a serious fire risk.
"Make sure you know if there is a recall for your vehicle,” Olson said. “And if there is a recall, don’t ride it until you take it into the dealer and make sure it is fixed and fixed correctly."
