Automotive Defects Can Cause Car Accidents Or Make Them Worse
The automobile industry has recalls on defective products each year. Thousands of parts go into making a vehicle, and any of them could contribute to your accident. Your injury could be caused by faulty:
- Air bags
- Seat belts
- Child car seats
When you consider the vast number of parts it takes to assemble an automobile, a defective part could likely have played a part in your injury or the wrongful death of your loved one. Our lawyers can help you determine your legal options.
We Have The Skills To Address Medical Products Liability
Manufacturers and distributors are responsible for the reasonable safety of their products and for adequately warning consumers about potential risks of harm. Manufacturers and distributors have to consider all the reasonable ways a product may be used. This duty is especially important when the product is something you put into your body, such as a medication or medical device. Examples of medical product liability matters are:
- Defective medical devices: Although medical devices have revolutionized health care, when they are defective, these devices can have catastrophic consequences. Products such as Infuse bone grafts, Sulzer hip replacements, transvaginal surgical mesh, faulty pacemakers or heart valve implants, and malfunctioning insulin pumps are examples of areas in which medical devices can lead to serious injuries and a product liability lawsuit.
- Prescription drug side effects: Pharmaceutical liability cases often receive significant publicity. Examples include matters related to Accutane, Isotretinoin, Actos, fentanyl pain patches, Yaz and other dangerous medications.
Our legal team is fully equipped to assist you with claims related to the harmful side effects of using these medical devices or drugs.
What Is Breach Of Warranty?
In a case involving product liability, an injured party can argue that the harm was caused by reliance on certain promises or warranties made by the manufacturer or seller of the item, which turned out not to be true. A breach of warranty claim can be based on either an express warranty or an implied warranty. An express warranty is one explicitly stated (usually in writing) from the manufacturer or seller to the consumer. An implied warranty is based on the reasonable expectations of the buyer. One of our personal injury lawyers can help you determine if your injury is the result of a breach of warranty.
