Lawyers in our firm have learned that an electric hunting vehicle, known as the Bad Boy Buggy, has some very serious design flaws. Our firm is currently handling a case involving a serious injury to a young person who rolled over a Bad Boy vehicle. The cart had an electrical flaw which caused it to surge and accelerate in a turn. Our discovery thus far has revealed some serious design flaws in this vehicle. The Bad Boy Buggy has also been subject to numerous recalls. Some of the recalls have not been completed. The vehicle has a high center of gravity and a significant propensity to roll over. It has a very unusual steering system and a very poor braking system. The suspension system is poorly designed, which results in oversteer.
The Buggies have been recalled because of defects in the steering system and a propensity to suddenly accelerate. Also, there has been a recall as a result of the vehicle running away while unattended. The Bad Boy Buggy is being manufactured currently by BB Buggies, Inc., which is a subsidiary of Textron. The company was formerly owned by Bad Boy Enterprises, LLC of Natchez, MS. Bad Boy has been fined by the Consumer Product Safety Commission for failing to give notice under the law about incidents and defects in the vehicle and injuries that were occurring.
We have learned that the Bad Boy vehicle has had very little design engineering and safety engineering. Sadly, there have been a number of people hurt on Bad Boy Buggies because of the design flaws.
