Three Things Your Should Know After A Public Transportation Accident

Product Liability Archives

3.6 million unsafe children's plates and bowls recalled

For families, keeping children safe is a serious concern, which is why it is important families are aware when their children may be exposed to hazards because of dangerous products. In this respect, Orange County parents should take note that a major manufacturer of children's products recently recalled 3.6 million units of children's plates and bowls due to a potential choking and safety hazard.

Legal protections for victims of dangerous drugs

Many products liability lawsuits involve drugs and medicines because of the potential harm defective and dangerous drugs can cause to victims. Pharmaceutical drugs must be tested according to Food and Drug Administration standards prior to entry into the market. These rules are designed to protect the public, patients and users of the drugs.

Vape pen explosions: When a healthier life choice turns hazardous

After numerous attempts to cut back on or stop smoking cigarettes, many people have taken to alternative forms of relief, such as vape pens. While the decision to switch to an electronic cigarette could stem from a wish to improve your health, there may also be a certain level of risk involved, which might not appear on the warning label.

Southern California jury awards $417 million in baby powder suit

Products liability law is a resource designed to help victims of dangerous or defective products. A court in southern California recently ordered a major pharmaceutical company to pay $417 million to a hospitalized woman who asserts that her routine use of the company's baby powder caused her ovarian cancer. There have been a series of similar talcum powder lawsuits nationally but this jury award is a record. The award includes compensatory damages and punitive damages.

Massive airbag recall continues to expand as deaths increase

Products liability law seeks to protect victims of defective products and their families. The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration delved into this arena recently when it ordered Takata, the airbag manufacturer involved in the recent major airbag recalls, to recall 2.7 million more airbag inflators that are potentially defective. The newly recalled airbag inflators cover vehicles made by three different car manufacturers. A different car maker recently reported the 12th American death caused by the faulty airbags. Internationally, the defective airbags have killed 18 victims and injured at least 180 others.

How are food recalls prosecuted after consumer injury?

There are several regulating agencies that help to prevent food borne illness and injury. However, while they are helpful in preventing consumer injury, they cannot completely prevent 100% of incidences in which people are injured or become ill due to food illness.

Design defect could have caused CA car accident injuries

Often, when people think of car accidents, they think of wrecks involving multiple vehicles at high speeds. However, while these accidents do happen, there is another type of instigator behind car accidents that can cause serious injuries to the vehicle's occupants. If a car manufacturer designed a vehicle that is dangerous to its passengers, it can cause injuries and be tried under products' liability.

Seek justice after defective products hurt people

In an ideal world, the products we use everyday would perform perfectly. However, in reality,this is not always the case. People are injured or even killed by defective products every year. For those who have experienced the sudden loss of a loved one due to a defective product, read on.

Manufacturer duties on warning labels to prevent accident, injury

Have you ever noticed the little warning labels attached to consumer products? Product warnings accompany most, if not all, consumer products. Their purposes are two-fold and failure to warn against accident or misuse could mean a manufacturer is responsible for the resulting injury.

When consumers are injured by defective products

By consumer goods and products is a rather routine action for residents in California and elsewhere. In most cases, these products maintain a necessary role in our daily lives and even in society. Therefore, we rely on these consumer goods essentially each and every day. Even when a consumer uses a product as it was intended, unfortunately, products don't always function as they should. This could cause the product to simply not work at all; however, in some unfortunate cases, a defective product could fall in the hands of a consumer, resulting in serious or fatal injuries.
