The plaintiff must not only prove that the product is defective, but the plaintiff must also be ready to prove the existence of a safer, technologically and economically feasible, alternative design which would have rendered the product safe for its intended purpose.
- Roof Crush Litigation Cases: We have proven that at minimal costs, a roof can be reinforced so as to virtually eliminate roof crush injury by reinforcing the roof with high-strength steel and high-strength insulating foam, which many automobile manufacturers employ already.
- Seat Belt Litigation Cases: Many alternative designs exist that other manufacturers use, including pretensioners and cinching latch plate which significantly reduce or eliminate seat belt injuries in both rollover and non-rollover events.
- Rollover Cases: Our experts have established that widening the wheel base or track width of a vehicle can significantly reduce the rollover propensity of vehicles. For older models, after-market fixes, such as safety spacers will significantly increase the stability of vehicles.
