In terms of what are defective products that give rise to lawsuits to people’s claims, there’s no better example than what’s in the news today, and that’s General Motors. They have now recalled hundreds, thousands of vehicles for their ignition switch defect. That’s a problem in the ignition switch that causes the key to go into the accessory position, which throws off all control of the vehicle, and causes the driver of the vehicle to lose control of the vehicle. There have been 14 deaths thus far in America as a result of defective ignition switches. So, in the news today with the General Motors president and CEO testifying before Congress, that’s a prime example of what a defective product is.
