Manufacturers have a legal duty to ensure that their products and product designs are not defective.
Breach of that duty, such as with defective automobile gas tanks, can result in serious injury and give rise to a claim for product liability damages.
Seiniger Law has experience in handling cases of product liability where people have been injured by a manufacturing defect, a design defect or an injury that could have been avoided if the consumer had been warned of a problem with the product.
An example of product liability is the recent news about air bag safety. Air bag manufacturers and automotive manufacturers are being held accountable for defective airbags. The industry is also reviewing the limited recalls that may not include all cars with those airbags. Not only will the airbag manufacturer possibly be held responsible, but the car manufacturer and dealerships may be held liable also. So, whether it is a design flaw or craftsmanship issue, it is up to those responsible to warn the consumer of the issues involved and make the safety corrections needed.
We handle cases that arise from defective consumer goods, foods and agricultural products, recreational products, automotive design flaws, etc. Our cases include negligence, strict liability, breach of warranty and consumer protection claims.
