What Are Common Defects?
There are several different kinds of common defects, but they all have the same result. They all lead to an unsafe product and potential harm for the end consumer. Some common motorcycle defects that lead to accidents that our firm is familiar with include:
- Manufacturing defects: These are defects that occur when the product is first made. These flaws occur at the factory where the motorcycle was constructed and can be from worker error, poor maintenance of the equipment used to build the motorcycle or a flawed manufacturing process. This results in a product that is not in line with the design and is more dangerous as a result.
- Design defects: These defects are flaws in the design of the product. Unlike with manufacturing defects, the product was properly built; it is just that the design itself is problematic. For there to be a design defect, there needs to be a foreseeable risk and an alternative, safer method that is practical to implement.
- Warning or labeling defects: These occur when a warning or label is not sufficient, and a person hurts themselves with the product as a result. These are not the most common with motorcycles, but there could still be some cases that involve this type of defect.
The lawyers of Ravid & Associates, P.C. are experienced with motorcycle claims and know what to look for to make sure our clients recover full compensation for their claims.
Who Can be Held Accountable For Motorcycle Defects?
Determining liability in a motorcycle defect case can be complicated, and it is always best to enlist the help of a motorcycle accident attorney to help you. However, there are two main parties who are responsible for most motorcycle defect cases:
- Manufacturers: Usually, the company that made your motorcycle is responsible for its defects. They are the ones who made the mistake and the ones who should be held responsible for correcting it. This is especially true if they were aware of the defect in the product and failed to issue a recall. Even if they did, they can still be required to pay for the injuries that their mistakes have caused.
- Sellers: Under certain situations, companies can be held responsible for selling defective products. For example, if they were aware of the defect and sold the product anyway, they could be considered responsible. Make sure to preserve records of where and when you bought your motorcycle so Ravid & Associates, P.C. can check whether there is a potential claim against the dealer.
