Strict liability and automobile product liability cases

Last week this blog discussed the tragic case of an actor who lost his life due to a vehicle defect. His parents are now pursuing a products liability lawsuit against the vehicle manufacturer with regards to their son's death. Illinois readers may wonder whether automobile vehicle defect lawsuits differ from personal injury lawsuits in general.

Parents of 'Star Trek' actor file product liability suit

Illinois residents may have heard of the tragic and untimely death in June of actor Anton Yelchin, known for his role in "Star Trek." Yelchin, age 27, was in the driveway of his home when his 2015 Jeep Grand Cherokee, facing frontwards on the driveway, began rolling backwards. The vehicle crushed Yelchin between a security fence and his mailbox. Trapped, Yelchin unfortunately languished alive for a while, before he ultimately suffocated and passed away.
