Background of Defective Product Law
It is unknown to most people that federal and local legislation exists
to ensure the rights of consumers from faulty products which make manufacturing
firms legally liable for injuries sustained by such items. These laws
are traditionally referred to as product liability laws. Beyond defective
motorcycle helmets, these laws extend to cover a variety of consumer products
such as faulty seat belts, tires, child car seats, airbags, pharmaceutical
products, children’s toys, medical devices, sporting goods such
as fitness equipment and firearms as well as many domestic appliances
like ovens and refrigerators.
Often these injuries stem from a defect in delight, manufacturing failing
or poor labeling that does not feature requisite safety warnings or instructions.
It is important to understand that product liability law entrusts the
burden of proof to the one injured in the event. In other words, he or
she faces the burden of providing evidence that illustrates a direct link
from the product failure and the physical injuries suffered. In many cases,
it can be challenging to show this causal relationship without an experienced
attorney on your team.
Health Risks Related to Faulty Helmets
A faulty helmet can have serious implications for a victim in a motorcycle
accident. In some cases, motorcyclists experience severe brain, neck and/or
spine injuries that may preclude them from working again, thereby making
them utterly dependent on loved ones. This presents a set of very difficult
challenges both medically and financially for the victim and the family.
It should be noted that many symptoms related to brain and/or neck injuries
do not show themselves until after the damage has reached an acute level.
These forms of injury stemming from a faulty helmet may undermine the
cognitive, physical and psychological capabilities of a victim, including
their physical stature, mental acuity and overall disposition. Heightened
risk for memory loss, seizure, stroke, internal bleeding, mental retardation,
uncontrolled bodily functions, speech loss may occur. In more serious
cases related to injury, victims experience complications such as impotence,
gastrointestinal failure, blood clots, pneumonia, loss of strength, bladder
control, chronic pain, spasms as well as paraplegia and quadriplegia.
Paralysis precipitating from paraplegia or quadriplegia can be extremely
costly for victims and their families. Paraplegia constitutes a state
of paralysis for a victim’s lower extremities marked by an injury
that has occurred on the spine’s lower vertebrae. Quadriplegia,
in contrast, involves paralysis of all four extremities, whereby injury
has occurred at the upper vertebrae of the spine. In both cases, the victim
will require a tremendous amount of emotional, psychological, medical
and financial support to help them through the rest of their life.
Potential Financial Burden
The health conditions illustrated above that may result from a faulty
motorcycle helmet can cost the family and support network of victims millions
of dollars over time, especially if the victim is disabled can no longer
work. The affiliated costs related to in-home nursing care, treatment,
rehabilitation facilities and home rehab, transportation or skilled nursing
home care, medication and/or medical equipment, given the needs of the
victim, can be overwhelming for most families. It’s important to
note that victims of these types of accidents and their loved ones in
the past have endured significant financial challenges and at times have
been forced into bankruptcy due to the costs associated with these types
of medical costs and income loss.
