Beatrice Smith v. SunBuggy Fun Rentals


01/30/24 – 02/02/24


A Nevada state court jury cleared a local ATV rental company on Friday of all liability in a lawsuit filed by a woman who suffered ankle injuries in a rollover accident, and the full trial was recorded gavel-to-gavel by Courtroom View Network.

The Clark County jury returned its verdict shortly after hearing closing arguments in a trial that began January 30th. Plaintiff Beatrice Smith sought nearly $500,000 in past and future damages for injuries she sustained in 2018 during an ATV tour operated by SunBuggy Fun Rentals.

Smith broke her ankle when her ATV rolled over on a hill, and she accused the tour operator of ignoring a complaint she made about the vehicle’s steering earlier in the tour. She argued SunBuggy did not perform adequate maintenance on her ATV and had a systemic practice of failing to properly document similar accidents, but the company successfully convinced jurors the waiver Smiths signed prior to the tour absolves them of all responsibility for her injuries.


Verdict for defendant.
