Juvenile Seriously Injured in UTV Accident

On June 7, 2024, a juvenile from St. Elizabeth, Missouri, was seriously injured while negotiating a curve in a Honda Pioneer 1000 UTV.  The vehicle left the roadway after the driver’s overcorrection and struck an embankment before overturning.  The incident occurred in Miller county.  The driver was not wearing a safety restraint and was taken to University Hospital by MU Air.


Offroad vehicles, such as the Honda Pioneer 1000, are often involved in mid-Missouri crashes that cause serious injury. Often times, these vehicles do not carry liability insurance. One of the avenues of potential recovery for the injured is a products liability claims against the manufacturer. AW Smith Law has successfully handled numerous product liability claims against manufacturers of offroad recreational vehicles. Often times, drivers and occupants are unaware of the dangers associated with the use of the recreational vehicles, which can support a failure to warn product liability claim. AW Smith Law has accumulated specialized information from past cases that can be extremely useful in bringing other product liability claims.
