When you use a particular product, you assume that the manufacturer has engineered it to perform a particular task safely and effectively. You also assume that the actual construction of the product was done carefully so that it will perform as it was meant to. Some products, though, are unreasonably defective, either in their engineering or their manufacture, and can cause serious injury even when being used correctly for the purpose for which they were made.
Defective vehicles, including SUVs that roll over unreasonably easily, are a large piece of the product liability puzzle. Not only are vehicles sometimes engineered poorly, we have all heard of situations where a vehicle was put together incorrectly. Defective automobiles can cause serious injuries to the operator, the passengers, and people outside the automobile who are affected by its behavior.
ATVs, or all terrain vehicles, are the same. Some ATV designs have just been found to be unreasonably unsafe, while other ATVs were not manufactured with sufficient care. Either way, the injuries can be catastrophic.
Another category of product liability cases include defective drugs and medical devices. Whether the drug or device in question was not sufficiently tested or the problem lies in later manufacture, you are dealing with a product that you trusted to prevent or cure a particular problem which instead leads to other, possibly greater, problems.
