Product Liability and Vehicle Rollovers
The crashworthiness of a vehicle refers to its ability to withstand a crash. Vehicle rollovers can be an after-effect of the impact of a crash. Vehicle rollovers can also be the primary cause of the accident. Our Las Vegas personal injury attorneys knowledgeable in the various types of product defects that can result in vehicle rollovers and a car’s inability to reasonably withstand a crash. We are experienced in identifying defective designs, manufacturing defects, vehicle malfunctions, inadequate safety warnings and other causes of accidents. A notable verdict in this area of product liability involved a rollover case against Subaru. We obtained 8.4 million dollars on behalf of our client.
Product Liability and Dangerous Products
Dangerous product cases can also involve various types of household products such as lawn mowers, saws, coffeemakers, gas lanterns and lamps. We also handle cases involving defective pharmaceutical drugs including Fen-Phen, Ortho Evra and others.
Generally, the injury must be significant for the person to have a valid claim. Our firm often works with engineers, mechanics and other experts to determine the product’s defect. It must be shown that the product performed differently than would be expected by a reasonable consumer.
