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.
