Auto Product Liability can be a contributing factor in a car accident. We have been hearing about the dangers of Takata air bags for years. Some of these devices have inflators that become unstable and explode with so much force that metal shards are sent flying through vehicles. This can cause serious or even fatal injuries. Air bags are intended to save lives, not cause serious harm or wrongful death.
Lawsuits involving fatal motor vehicle accidents with semis require specialized legal knowledge, along with the ultimate in compassion for the victim's family. A horrendous crash occurred recently near Gainesville, Florida involving five motor vehicles. According to the Florida Highway Patrol, the crash left eight people injured and sadly seven others died from their injuries. Many of the victims were children on their way to Walt Disney World. Since the tragic accident, at least one wrongful death lawsuit was filed and additional lawsuits are likely to follow.
