UPDATE – Product Liability Lawsuits Protect Texas Citizens and Assist Federal Regulators

As an update to the previous entry on all-terrain vehicles (ATV) from November 6, the Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSA) recently released its final order on ATV safety.

Three-wheel ATVs are still under investigation and until final product safety guidelines are enacted, these models cannot be manufactured in, or imported into, the United States.

Beginning in April, 2009, all four-wheel ATVs must comply with the new product safety regulations set out in the November 14, 2008 CPSC Final Rule issued by the Commission. Injuries from these all-terrain vehicles (ATV) can be life-threatening and permanent, if not fatal.
