Defective or dangerous products are the cause of thousands of injuries every year in the U.S. "Product liability law," the legal rules concerning who is responsible for defective or dangerous products, is different from ordinary injury law, and this set of rules sometimes makes it easier for an injured person to recover damages.

Vehicles made by 19 different automakers have been recalled to replace frontal airbags on the driver’s side or passenger’s side, or both in what NHTSA has called "the largest and most complex safety recall in U.S. history." The airbags, made by major parts supplier Takata, were mostly installed in cars from the model year 2002 through 2015. Some of those airbags could deploy explosively, injuring or even killing car occupants.

Most victims are unaware of their rights after suffering an injury as a result of a faulty or defective product they have purchased or used. If you’ve been injured by a defective or dangerous product, you need a product liability lawyer in Michigan with experience and proven results.
