Green Bay products liability attorneys, automaker defectParents are consistently told that the back seat of a vehicle is safest for children. Most of the time that statement is true. There is, however, an automobile defect in some vehicle makes and models that could place children at just as much risk as those riding in front seats. Even more disturbing is that the automakers of those vehicles have allegedly known of the problem for quite some time and have done nothing to correct it, even though the cost to automakers would be extremely low.

Obtained by CBS News, several crash videos show just what can happen when these car defects meet rear-end crashes. Driver and passenger seats in the front, when occupied, can collapse backwards and violently launch the rider into the backseat. Drivers and front seat passengers, themselves, are at a high risk for head injury; however, it is the passengers in the back, who are typically children, that are most at risk. Often hit in the head or chest by the skull and seat of the person in front of them, children are at risk for severe injuries that could lead to death or permanent disability.

Products liability law protects consumers from products that were defectively designed or did not meet safety standards. While Wisconsin's products liability law has recently undergone some changes, the law still works as a way to protect injured consumers.

Green Bay products liability lawyers, Appleton products liability lawyers, dangerous products, defective products, product recall, products liability lawsuit, voluntary recall, Salmonella, Herrling Clark Law Firm Ltd., ground oregano recallProduct recalls are reported by news sources to inform the public of the potential danger a product may cause. Usually the product manufacturer initially becomes aware of the defect or problem and then issues a voluntary recall. However, in some cases, government agencies such as the Food and Drug Administration or the Consumer Product Safety Commission come across the defect and inform the manufacturer of its findings.
