Defective Product Profile: Motor Vehicles

Last updated 19 days ago

Product liability claims involve cases in which individuals are injured because of a defective product. In order to successfully prove negligence on the part of the manufacturer or distributor, the plaintiff must show that he or she was using the product for its intended purpose when the injury occurred.

Some common product liability claims involve cars sold with defective tires. Last year, Toyota agreed to a $1.1 billion dollar settlement in a class action lawsuit because they sold a series of cars with a defective gas pedals. This settlement was one of the largest that the automobile industry has seen.
