When you hear the words defective product, your mind may envision a dangerous household item, equipment, a child’s toy or some other product that is poorly made and poses a threat to your safety. However, do tires ever enter your mind? They should.
Many tires have been deemed as defective products. What’s scary about defective tires is that they can be more dangerous than most defective products because of the speed being traveled. When something goes wrong at a high rate of travel, the results can be catastrophic.
Sadly, most people do not know they are traveling on dangerous tires until it is too late. When tire manufacturers confirm that the tire is dangerous or defective, they generally issue a tire recall to try and get the defective product off of the market before it causes injuries or death to anyone. Unfortunately, sometimes, they are too late, and innocent victims have suffered injuries or died in South Florida car crashes because of defective tires.
Did a Defective Product Claim the Life of Your Family Member?
When your loved one has suffered a fatal injury due to a defective product, you may be at a loss for words. When someone you love is taken from you due to a poorly designed product or defect in manufacturing, you will want that company to be held accountable for your loss.
This is why it is helpful to talk with a skilled South Florida wrongful death attorney. You may be entitled to non-economic and economic damages, in addition to punitive damages. A knowledgeable attorney will be able to answer your questions, explain what steps you should take next, teach you how to protect your rights and help you pursue a Florida wrongful death claim.
