Defective products attorneys work to serve two groups of people: their immediate clients who have been injured and are in need of compensation, and the public at large, who are put into harm’s way with a defective product.
Recently, in Alabama, a verdict was found against KIA Motors for the death of 16 year old Tiffany Stabler, who was tragically killed after being ejected from her KIA as a result of a collision. Tiffany’s father purchased the car as a gift, and took it to the dealership to make sure everything was in working order. If the recall had been issued in time, Tiffany would still be alive today.
In 2002, KIA recalled nearly 190,000 vehicles from 1995-1998 for defective seat belts, which made a latch noise, but never closed. However, this recall was a month too late for Tiffany, who was killed before the recall was issued. The family’s defective products attorneys were able to secure a sizable judgment for the family, which they most certainly deserve.
How Defective Products Attorneys Help the Public
The Stabler family’s defective products attorneys assisted the Stabler family in receiving compensation, for sure. But they have also helped the public at large, by winning a judgment that will surely make KIA Motors re-think it’s business practices in order to make cars safer for consumers. When a product is defective, defective product attorneys are an important part of the system to insure that market forces mandate a change in the manufacturing of that product. Changing dangerous products is beneficial to everyone as a whole.
