Polaris RZR and Ranger Fire Investigation


Squitieri & Fearon, LLP is investigating possible claims against off-road vehicle manufacturers Polaris Industries, Inc. and Polaris Sales Inc.  Polaris has sold multiple models in its Ranger and RZR lines that suffer from a design defect that creates a significant and unreasonable risk of the vehicles overheating and catching fire. This defect has resulted in more than 250 fires, more than 30 severe injuries, and at least four deaths.

From 2013 to 2018, Polaris Industries issued RZR recalls 10 times for fire hazards, far more than for any competing product.

The Polaris RZR and Ranger contain a design defect in which the vehicles’ high-powered “ProStar” engine is located directly behind the occupant compartment, without proper ventilation and heat shielding. Because it is located within inches of combustible plastic body panels and close to vehicle occupants, it poses a high risk of fire and injury to passengers.

If you or someone you know owns or leases a Polaris RZR and/or Ranger and has experienced a fire, please contact Stephen J. Fearon, Jr. by e-mail at stephen@sfclasslaw.com or by phone at (212) 421-6492.
