  • Ford Pinto Case: Ford was found liable for continuing to produce and sell a car which had known design problems which could lead to the vehicle exploding if rear ended in a car crash.  The design of the car placed the gas tank outside of the protective fame of the vehicle and directly in front of the rear bumper.
  • Ford and Firestone Case: This case is typically known as the Explorer Roll Over case.  Both Ford and Firestone were found to have flaws in their products which resulted in multiple fatalities due to vehicle roll overs.  The basic issue at fault was that the Firestone Tires were heating up and bursting, in part due to the guidelines set forth by Ford which recommended a Tire Pressure that was much too low for the design of the tire.
  • Toyota and Takato Airbag Recall:  In short, this recall involved a flawed design with the Takata Airbag system which could release improperly and cause injury or death due to metal shrapnel which would impact passengers.
  • Talcum Powder Lawsuits
  • Bair Hugger Warming Blankets Lawsuits
  • Xarelto Lawsuits
  • Transvaginal Mesh Lawsuits
  • Syngenta GMO Corn Litigation

Multi-County Litigation (MCL): When multiple similar product liability claims are filed in various counties in the state court system, a court may group them together into an MCL to help move things along more quickly.

Multi-District Litigation (MDL): Like an MCL, when similar product liability claims are filed in federal courts in various states, a judicial panel may decide to group them into an MDL.

Bellwether trial: As part of the MDL process, one or a few claims are chosen as test cases to go to trial first. The outcomes of these cases will influence how others who have similar cases should proceed.

Global settlement: If the victims (or plaintiffs) win in a bellwether trial, the other side (or defendants) will generally make a global settlement offer to wrap up all of the other existing claims.

Class-action lawsuit: 
Class-action cases are different from MDL or MCL cases.  In a class-action lawsuit, there are multiple plaintiffs that consolidate their legal efforts into one large action, or “Class Action.” In many circumstances, individuals are not aware of class-action lawsuits, and that is why you often see advertisements to try to notify potential victims of a class-action claim.
