There are few things more dangerous than a defective motor vehicle. A car with defective parts can easily break down and cause injuries or even death to the driver, the passengers and anyone else who is unfortunate enough to be in the way. Such accidents can be traced back to mistakes made in the manufacturing process. Examples of vehicle defects include faulty airbags, designs prone to rollovers, door latch failure, roof crush, brake failure and seatbelt failure. Manufacturers and distributors can be held liable in accident cases involving such defects.
Even an everyday consumer product can become a hazard when a defect enters the picture. Product liability can occur when the product has been improperly designed or engineered. This means the product was supplied to the market without proper testing for defects. Defects can occur at the design or manufacturing level. The former is much more serious since defective design can lead to the production of a whole line of dangerous products, whereas the latter may involve only a few select defective products.
Another form of product liability occurs when nothing is wrong with the product itself, but the instructions provided for use are improper or certain precautions to be observed when using the product are inadequate. The third form of product liability occurs when a product is unsafe in its very nature yet is still released to the public. In such cases, consumers can file product liability lawsuits if they are injured by the product.
When defective products cause property damage, victims can file for coverage. Examples of this include malfunctioned home appliances causing fire, structural damage to the home caused by improperly manufactured building components, and rust or corrosion. Such incidents can result in damage to both property damage and personal injury.
The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission has the duty to protect consumers from unreasonable risk of injury or death resulting from defective products. Protecting the consumer includes alerting the public of products recalled due to the injury risk they pose to consumers. Products found to cause harm or pose risk of an injury to the consumer are recalled in the interest of consumer safety.
