Former BYU running backs coach Reno Mahe and his wife have filed a lawsuit naming several companies in the death of their daughter Elsie, who died of strangulation after becoming entangled in allegedly defective window blinds in 2016. According to documents filed Thursday, the Mahe family is suing several companies involved in the manufacture of the window coverings in question. The lawsuit names Blindvision, Century Blinds, Hunter Douglas Inc., Hunter Douglas Fabrication Company, Turnils North America Inc., and Does I-X as defendants.

The plaintiffs seek relief on theories of product liability, negligence and breach of warranty in regard to the window coverings. The plaintiffs claim in the suit that the defendants negligently allowed the product to be sold without mechanisms to prevent the possibility of strangulation. They also claim it was negligent for the product to contain cords capable of reaching a length greater than 7.25 inches, which they say pose an unreasonable risk of strangulation. It is further alleged that the defendants failed to put warnings on the product or provide users with adequate information regarding strangulation hazards.

Michelin North America Inc. Vindicated In Texas Product Liability Case.

Whenever a company produces a product for consumer use, there will always be certain safety standards they are required to meet to make sure the product is safe. This is necessary for the public good. These standards may vary according to what the product is, what the product does, and who the product is designed for. But no matter what, if a company neglects to follow these standards and procedures, resulting in a product which causes harm to you or a loved one, you may be entitled to monetary compensation. An expert product liability attorney at our Boston, Massachusetts law firm will be able to help guide you through this complicated litigation process so that you can begin to recover from your injuries.

A jury in a Weatherford, Texas district court found unanimously that Michelin North America Inc. is blameless with respect to a product liability lawsuit involving the failure of a BFGoodrich Rugged Trail T/A tire. The suit was filed on December 15, 2014, before the 43rd District Court of Parker County, Texas, and involved a vehicle crash in which two people were killed and several others injured. The BFGoodrich tire, according to the complaint, had a design and manufacturing defect. Michelin, however, was able to demonstrate that the particular tire had more than 80,000 miles of wear, as well as impact damage sustained before the fatal accident. This represents the third consecutive vindication Michelin has received in product liability cases since 2015.

Defective Airbags In Chevrolet Impala Found To Be Directly Responsible For Passengers Death.

As consumers, we have an expectation that the goods we buy from the store will be made in a way as to not harm the consumer while in use. What this means is that we believe that the products we buy won’t injure us if they are used properly. When products don’t meet these standards, and certain safety regulations are neglected, and a company produces a product which causes harm to you or a loved one, you may be entitled to damages amounting to the pain and suffering that has been caused by the faulty product in addition to all of your other out-of-pocket cost. An expert product liability attorney at the Law Offices of Gilbert R. Hoy, Jr. and Affiliates will be able to help guide you through this complicated litigation process so that you can begin to recover from your injuries.

General Motors has settled a product liability suit filed by the mother of a woman who died in a 2012 crash alleging that the death was the direct result of the car’s airbags failing to inflate. Jenny Garneau of Laconia, New Hampshire sued General Motors and auto dealer Quirk GMC of Manchester, New Hampshire alleging that the 2012 Chevrolet Impala, in which her daughter was riding, had a defective ignition switch that could cause the car’s airbags to fail to inflate in the event of a crash.

Ms. Garneau brought the suit in 2015 as the administrator of her daughter, Paige Garneau’s, estate. Paige Garneau died in a single-car crash in the early hours of September 2, 2012 in Canterbury, New Hampshire. Paige Garneau’s boyfriend, Robert Pitts, the driver, was charged with negligent homicide in connection with the crash. Ms. Garneau, who was in the front passenger’s seat, was not wearing a seatbelt at the time of the crash and was thrown headlong into the car’s windshield. She was rushed to the Concord Hospital where she was pronounced dead on arrival.
