Every year numerous motor vehicle accidents are caused by defective tires. In some cases the defect is due to wear and tear after a tire has been in use for awhile; however, defective tires are frequently the fault of the manufacturer. In recent years, major American tire companies have had to recall thousands of defective tires. Frequently, lives are lost before defective tires are recalled. A product liability “defective tire” attorney can help accident victims whose lives have been altered in defective tire accidents get the financial compensation they deserve for their injuries.
Companies involved in the manufacturing, supplying, selling, and distribution of a product can be held liable for product related illness or injury. Companies are legally responsible for the safety of their products. A consumer that has sustained illness, injury, or death as a result of a commercial product has the right to bring a product liability suit against the manufacturer, retailer, distributor, or supplier.
Personal injury is a category of tort law which provides an opportunity for those harmed by the actions or omissions of others to pursue their rights to compensation for such injuries. The personal injury practice area comprises a large portion of civil litigation in the American legal system, and can include cases involving everything from slip and fall accidents to those based on insurance coverage denials and policy disputes. The personal injury arm of tort law encompasses any harm or injury caused to a party’s person, rights, reputation or property. These types of suits fall exclusively under the civil litigation umbrella, indicating that monetary recovery is the plaintiff’s desired outcome.
Prescription drugs are supposed to help treat maladies, prevent or relieve symptoms, lessen the chance of sickness, or even cure illness. Unfortunately, there are times that the drug itself causes damage or increases the risk of suffering illness to the point that people are better off not taking it. These are known as “defective drugs.”
