When consumers are in the market for a new or used vehicle, there are often several criteria they have in mind for their purchase. One of the most important considerations for most consumers is that a vehicle is equipped with reliable safety features. Unfortunately, some makes and models experience equipment failures, including a failure to deploy airbags, which can leave Kentucky consumers with serious injuries.
People trust that their vehicles will keep them safe. They know that car accidents happen, but they probably believe that they are usually due to the actions of a driver. Most people here in Kentucky likely don't consider the possibility that their vehicle could injure them through no fault of their own or another driver's. However, that is exactly what representatives for an out-of-state man argued to a jury, who returned a verdict in the plaintiff's favor in a recent products liability claim.
