Products liability is a serious area of consumer protection law. When you buy a defective product, you or your family members could be injured as a result. Defective products can break and cause injuries, or even be used in a way that promotes injuries even when working properly. Products liability covers poor design, poor materials used in manufacturing and products with known defects that can cause serious injuries.
Defective Automobiles and Car Parts
The 2010 Toyota recall is one of the most dramatic examples of poor design and product liability in recent memory, but it’s not the only case where problems with a car’s design have caused serious injuries or fatalities
Automotive manufacturers have a responsibility to design safe cars for drivers and their families; cars that won’t experience drastic and unexpected issues with potentially fatal consequences.
Whether it’s a floor mat that causes the accelerator to stick or a faulty air bag design, defective automobiles and automotive parts can cause serious injuries and are prime candidates for products liability cases.
Defective products and poor designs aren’t limited to the automotive industry. Everything from above-ground pools to baby cradles can have poor designs or defective products that cause serious injury to the people who use them.
From hose nozzles that explode in the hands of people who use them to peanut butter that causes food poisoning, defective products surround us in everyday life.
