LOS ANGELES, Jan. 30, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- In today's world, we all rely on goods and products during our daily routines. We trust that the cars that get us to work, the food we eat, and the appliances and electronics we use will fill their intended purpose and, most importantly, do us no harm. Though accidents and malfunctions do happen that are beyond anyone's control, it's important to make the distinction between circumstances that are unavoidable or the result of user error, and events that could have been prevented by the manufacturer. This is particularly true and pressing if that event results in personal injury or loss. As we continue to rely on the products supplied by corporations, it is critical that these products are safe, and absolutely essential that companies be held accountable if they prove otherwise. Though liability law can be quite complex, highly experienced attorneys like Cameron Yadidi Brock are dedicated toward ensuring their clients receive due compensation if they experience hardship due to faulty or defective products.
There are many circumstances in which an individual and an attorney can push forward to establish product liability. Product defection is one of the most straight forward instances. Some of the most well-known and recent examples come from the auto industry. The headline grabbing faulty ignition switches in new General Motors vehicles have been found to be responsible for a number of injuries and even deaths. The number of approved death compensation claims has risen steadily to 49 since the defect was first reported. The class action lawsuit has also established 7 Category One injury claims and 65 Category Two claims. These claims are important because lives have been irreparable altered, and many are searching for justice.
The faulty ignition switches in GM vehicles are certainly alarming, yet not all cases of product liability are as immediately clear-cut. A product might not fail or malfunction, like the GM ignition switches, but it might result in unacceptable or unforeseen danger. Fault would not rest with a manufacturer if an individual suffered injury due to using a blow dryer in the shower, for example, because that is not how that product is designed to function. If someone purchased an above ground pool, however, and slipped and hurt themselves because the pool material was overly slippery, that person could have a case to establish liability with the manufacturer.
Because product liability can involve such a high level of expertise in order to navigate through the exceptions, nuisance, and technical complexities of the law, an individual seeking compensation for injury or loss should seek the services of only the most proven attorneys like Cameron Yadidi Brock at the Law Offices of Burg & Brock. With decades of experience and over 100 million dollars collected in verdicts and settlements, their highly talented legal team has the skill and expertise to deliver the results their clients need.
