Product Failure Injury
Defective Product Attorney
In our modern world, we interact with and use many automated devices and pieces of machinery. Product defects and failures are increasingly common. Unfortunately, many of these devices, products, and pieces of machinery fail from time-to-time, and the injuries that may result from these failures can be catastrophic to people. If you or someone that you care about has suffered a product failure injury, call our injury attorneys today.
Product liability claims can be scientifically complex and costly to effectively investigate and pursue. In order to properly prepare a product liability case, you need a legal team with resources and experience. A product liability lawyer at Sessions & Fleischman can help determine if you have a potential case and prepare to pursue your product liability claim.
When we talk about a product failure injury, we are talking about an injury that occurs when a product, device, or machine does not function in the way that we expect, or it does not protect us in the way that we expect it to.
Below, we discuss some of the most common and serious product failures. If you do not see your type of case discussed here, do not be concerned. We offer these examples to identify some of the common product failures that we see. If you have been injured
- Automobile Defects – Automotive Defects
- Sometimes the defect is obvious – the roof crushed, the belt failed, the tired failed
- Some cannot be seen – ignition failure of the GM vehicles
- Takata airbag – they become a bomb – they explode, pull the radiological records, metal foreign body
Product Failure Injuries Resulting From Autonomous and Semi-Autonomous Vehicle
Cars, trucks, and even commercial trucks are increasingly relying upon autonomous and semi-autonomous technology. Whether it is lane-assist technology, adaptive cruise control, or full self-driving the technology
Self-Driving Cars – autonomous and nearly autonomous driving vehicles – lane correction, keep distance between vehicles following
Were you rear-ended by a vehicle that should have automatically braked?
Missed red light by autonomous vehicle – Did the vehicle have automatic braking system?
Single vehicle roll-over accident – was there a failure in the design or construction that failed?
Did the car catch on fire? It may seem overly simple and ridiculous to say this, but cars are not supposed to catch on fire.
Was it a design defect that caused the product to fail?
Were you injured by the airbag? Did the airbag improperly delay its explosion? Did the airbag deploy when it should not have? Did the correct airbag go off? Why were there not sensors in the right location?
Seat failures. Did the seat back fail to support you in the rear after a collision?
Logging trucks injuries. Logging is one of the most dangerous jobs in America. Loggers already have enough to worry about without being concerned over their equipment failing. Unfortunately, there are many opportunities for equipment to fail and for serious injuries to occur in the logging context. Did the truck have a proper cab guard? Roof crush on trucks. There is no real standard because the manufacturers assume they do not roll over.
Children’s toys defective designs. Some of the dangerous defects that exist with regard to children’s toys are shocking.
Manufacturing defects of equipment and tools. It is critical to retain the product. Without the product, we may not be able to establish how it failed or even who the product manufacturer is.
