Discovery proceeding in Honda ATV rollover suit

By David Yates | Apr 18, 2013

A year and a half later, discovery is still proceeding in litigation brought by the owner of a Honda all-terrain vehicle, who sued Cowboy Honda and manufacturer Honda North America, alleging the ATV is defective.

As previously reported, Dewayne Diggles and his wife, Sherry, filed the suit Sept. 8, 2011, in Jefferson County District Court.

The last filing in the suit, a certificate of written discovery, came April 17, court records show.

The filing serves notice of plaintiff’s expert witness interrogatories and request for production to American Honda Motor Co.

The lawsuit alleges that on Jan. 1, 2010, Diggles was injured when a 2007 Honda Rancher 420TM ATV flipped over and landed on him.

The suit does not provide details of the incident.

The suit does, however, allege the ATV was defective and should not have been manufactured and sold by the defendants.

In his suit, Diggles is suing for his alleged past and future medical expenses, mental anguish, pain, impairment, disfigurement and lost wages, plus all court costs.

His wife is suing for loss of consortium and household services.

Attorney Ernest Browne of Browne & Browne represents them.

Judge Gary Sanderson, 6oth District Court, is assigned to the case.

Case No. B190-870
