Three Things Your Should Know After A Public Transportation Accident

Posts tagged "Product Liability"

Recalls of defective and dangerous motorcycles

Accidents involving 4-wheel motor vehicles and motorcycles are not uncommon, and often these collisions are attributable to driver negligence or recklessness. However, in some cases motorcyclists may find themselves in dangerous situations because their vehicles malfunction or otherwise present dangerous characteristics. When this occurs, individuals may suffer accidents and serious injuries due to manufacturer mistakes and other related defects.

Inadequate warnings can cause injuries to California residents

It is not uncommon for a California resident to find on the package or instructions of their new product purchase a list of warnings about how to use, or not to use, their new item. Warnings may advise consumers to only use products under certain conditions or to only operate them in the manner that the manufacturers intended. Sufficient warnings may generally keep individuals safe, while inadequate warnings may introduce individuals to product-based injuries.

Why defective medical equipment remains on the market

As previously discussed on this blog, it is clear that some consumers suffer harm because a certain product was defected and entered the stream of commerce. Defects are not always clear, and they can occur when there are issues with the design, manufacturing and warnings. In some cases, even when a product has a known defect, this does not mean it will not cause harm to consumers. In fact, failures with a recall could be the reason why a consumer interacted with a certain product and suffered harm.

How common are defective medical devices?

When Californians think about a product malfunctioning, they likely think of a household item not working or a vehicle failing. However, the realm of defective products expands much farther than that. Consumers are not just those that go to the store or purchase items online. They are also patients who require medical devices to aid them. And, just like any consumer trusting the product that they are using, they can unexpectedly experience harm and injury due to a defective medical device.

What is a manufacturing defect?

In all facets of life, individuals in California and elsewhere rely on consumer goods to get through their day. Whether it is at work, home or in the general public, consumer goods essentially make life easier. Unfortunately, not all consumer products are created equally. Although the intention is that each product is made the same, if errors are made along the way, a relatively safe product could be deemed dangerous by the time it reaches the hands of the consumer. One of the causes for this are defects caused in the manufacturing phase of a product.

Guiding you through a products liability action

For most of us, we cannot get through the day without the convenience of consumer products. Whether it is a motor vehicle, household item, tool or any other type of consumer good, these items are used to make things easier. Unfortunately, consumer products can fail or be defective. And because of these defects, the consumer could suffer much harm.

Medical device defects can slip through the regulatory cracks

The medical device industry faces some competing priorities that may be nearly impossible to resolve. These devices can make an important difference in patients' lives, and so everyone wants them to be available quickly. However, medical devices can cause terrible problems if they are defective, and so everyone wants them to be safe. For that reason, the medical device industry is heavily regulated.

Jury awards $80 million to woman hurt by defective implant

When patients agree to have a medical device surgically implanted in their bodies, they trust that the surgeons know what they're doing, and that the device is safe and will be effective. Indeed, when the only way to remove the device is through a second surgical operation, a patient must place a lot of faith in the people who created it. Unfortunately, sometimes medical device companies rush their products to market before they are ready, and patients are badly injured as a result.

Product liability in car injury cases

Most of the time on this blog, when we discuss automotive injuries, we are talking about motor vehicle accidents. In these cases, the injured party can hold negligent drivers liable for the damages they cause. Sometimes, we discuss more complex forms of liability, as when we talk about holding trucking companies liable for damages caused by their drivers in an accident.

NCAA basketball player's shoe breaks mid-game

Famous shoe manufacturer Nike has reportedly taken a short-term hit in its stocks after national television caught one of its shoes breaking apart while on the foot of a noted college basketball player. The player left early in the game after the shoe broke, causing him to fall.
