Product Recalls- Can You Receive Compensation?

Product malfunctions and recalls are a fact of life for consumers.  We hear about them so often that we may not pay much attention to them as we see them. Occasionally though, the initial product malfunctions that leads to a recall can be disastrous, and even deadly. In the state of Massachusetts, if a manufacturer produces a product that causes harm or results in death of the user, the law places liability on the manufacturer and seller of the defective product.  If you are the victim of a product malfunction or defect of some sort, it is important for you to know your rights.

You may be familiar with the case in the years of 2009 and 2010 regarding Toyota vehicles. Vehicles were recalled for a sudden acceleration problem that was the cause of injuries and in some cases, death. This resulted in many recalls and installations of Brake Override Systems (BOS) to fix the problem on the cars. Toyota also settled financially with many individuals and families of those whose cars may have been damaged by this issue. Toyota is still settling with many individuals that were affected by this problem.


This case was an example of how dangerous a product malfunction could be, and how important it is to have proper representation to make sure that you receive the results that you should.
