Any person or entity that makes and distributes any product bears a responsibility to assure the product is safe when used in a foreseeable manner. People can be injured or killed by defectively designed or produced cribs, baby carriers, toys, machinery, medicines, food products, automobiles and many other products. If you feel you have been injured by a defective product you should IMMEDIATELY contact the Law Office of Sean Hennessey.
There are strict time limits to file claims against the parties who may have created, designed or manufactured a defective product. Further, it is important to determine the names of any and all parties who were involved in the creating, designing and manufacturing of defective products.
Below is a notable resolution of a Defective Product case:
- AUTOMOBILE MANUFACTURER: A man and his family were involved in a single car accident while driving on the highway. The man lost control of his vehicle and over corrected trying to get the vehicle under control. Unfortunately the man was unable to gain control of his car and the car went off the highway and rolled over several times. The driver and another family member were killed and several other family members were seriously injured.Sean Hennessey alleged the accident would have been avoided had the manufacturer installed Electronic Stability Control (“ESC”) in the vehicle. ESC is a product that can slow a vehicle down and straighten out a vehicle that is losing control. The estimated cost of installing ESC in the vehicle was less than $200.00. Other auto manufacturers had already installed ESC in similar vehicles.
RESULT: The case ultimately settled for a total of over $2,200,000 before trial.
