There continues to be a great deal of activity in in our firm’s Personal Injury / Products Liability Section. The General Motors and Takata litigation has kept a number of lawyers in the Section very busy. I will give an update on some of the current projects lawyers in the Section are working on.
Product Liability – We continue to focus on accident cases involving automobiles, heavy equipment and consumer products. Some of these auto cases involve single-vehicle crashes, while others involve multiple-vehicle accidents. Our lawyers will be glad to review any case involving catastrophic injury or death. Contact Ben Baker or Mike Andrews at 800-898-2034 or by email at Ben.Baker@beasleyallen.com or Mike.Andrews@beasleyallen.com.
18-wheeler Accidents – There are significant differences between handling an interstate trucking case and other car wreck cases. It is imperative to have knowledge of the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Regulations, technology, business practices, insurance coverages, and to have the ability to discover written and electronic records. Expert testimony is of utmost importance. Accidents involving semi-trucks and passenger vehicles often result in serious injuries and wrongful death. Trucking companies and their insurance companies almost always quickly send accident investigators to the scene of a truck accident to begin working to limit their liability in these situations. Our lawyers, staff and in-house accident investigators immediately begin the important task of documenting and preserving the evidence. We would like to review any case involving catastrophic injury or death. Contact Julie Beasley, Chris Glover or Mike Crow at 800-898-2034 or by email at Julie.Beasley@beasleyallen.com, Chris.Glover@beasleyallen.com, or Mike.Crow@beasleyallen.com.
Defective Tires – Tire failure can result in a serious car crash and even a vehicle rollover accident, causing serious injury or death to vehicle occupants. Air, heat and sunlight can cause the rubber in tires to break down. When a tire is defective, potentially serious problems like detreads and blowouts can occur long before the tire would be expected to wear out. If the tire failure is the result of design or manufacturing defects, and the manufacturer is aware of the problem, it has an obligation to alert consumers to the potential danger. Contact Rick Morrison at 800-898-2034 or by email at Rick.Morrison@beasleyallen.com.
On-the-job Product Liability – Many times product claims arise from facts giving rise to workers compensation claims. After we investigate the circumstances that caused the injuries, many times we discover a defective machine may be the cause of the injuries. Contact Kendall Dunson at 800-898-2034 or by email at Kendall.Dunson@beasleyallen.com.
Heavy Truck Product Liability Claims – Tractor trailer and other heavy trucks are not required to contain many of the same protections for occupants as smaller passenger cars. They can contain dangerous defects putting the truck driver or passengers at risk of serious injury or death. These trucks many times have particularly weak roofs that crush in rollovers. The passenger compartments are often not protected by effective cab guards, and this allows loads to shift into the truck cab. We would like to review any case involving catastrophic injury or death. Contact Ben Baker at 800-898-2034 or by email at Ben.Baker@beasleyallen.com.
I will write in more detail in this issue on several other topics, including specific cases and other matters of interest, under the Product Liability Section below. Currently, we have 15 lawyers and 11 Legal Assistants working in this Section. In addition, we have seven highly trained investigators, all employed by the firm, and that has provided to be a definite benefit for us and our clients.
