We just got through the season of giving, but that also makes it the season of getting for a lot of people.

Do You Drive One of these 85 Million Dangerous Vehicles?

We all know the two car parts that will most likely save your life in case of an accident: your seatbelt (buckle up!) and your airbags.

Do I Have a Hoverboard Lawsuit?

 

Hoverboards were called the hottest holiday gift last year – and just not because they were so popular.

Defective Gifts May Cause More Than a Return Hassle

The holiday season is over. We’ve all eaten too much horrible, delicious food, entertained relatives well past their expiration date, listened to Michael Bublé for the first time in a year, and (hopefully) found the perfect gifts for everyone on our list. Lights, trees, menorahs, and other artifacts of the season are soon to come down, if they haven’t already, and most of us are ready to move on.[..]

How Do You Know If You Have a Defective Product?

Ideally, all consumer products that go to market have been thoroughly tested to prevent them from unexpectedly harming anyone. But occasionally something slips through the cracks; maybe the marketing team fails to include adequate instructions for the product’s use on its packaging, or a manufacturer just doesn’t realize that a small part on a child’s toy could come loose and become a choking hazard.
