While pedestrians can be at fault, these accidents are often due to driver’s failure to see a pedestrian. Again, injuries in these accidents are usually severe due primarily to the lack of protection afforded a pedestrian combined with the enormous weight differential that exists between the motor vehicle and a person. Pedestrians are fully exposed to the full force of accident.
Product Liability is an area of personal injury law that refers to injuries resulting from the use of products. These products can be something as simple as a small toy or something as complex as a multi-million dollar piece of industrial equipment. Motor vehicles, boats, printing equipment, toys, gadgets and food items and so on, all fall under this category.
Products that fail to function as one could reasonably expect and those with improper warnings or inadequate instructions fall under the product liability if someone is injured as a consequence.
Product Liability claims can be both complex and costly and require an experienced attorney with the resources to litigate these cases.
