Is time a factor in strict liability cases?

When it comes to proving strict liability, time may greatly affect the outcome of your case. If using a product caused you injury not long after you bought it, you may have a stronger claim in a California court than if you experienced injury several months following your purchase. FindLaw explains a few reasons why time may be a factor in strict liability cases.

What causes unidirectional phobia?

Since motorcycles are especially vulnerable to automobile accidents, maintaining control over your motorcycle is crucial to avoid a deadly auto collision. However, some California bike riders have a problem making a left or a right turn, which can be caused by anxiety or a lack of confidence on the part of the motorcyclist. According to Motorcyclist magazine, this condition is known as unidirectional phobia.

EPA may have enabled Monsanto product liability

The purpose of the Environmental Protection Agency is to help safeguard public health throughout the United States by regulating and restricting the use of potentially harmful chemicals. However, two recent product liability trials in California have brought forth evidence that raises questions about whether the EPA is performing due diligence when it comes to oversight of pesticides and herbicides. In each of the two trials, a jury found that the chemical company Monsanto, manufacturer of Roundup herbicides, failed to warn consumers that their products could cause cancer, requiring the company to pay large amounts of money in damages to the plaintiffs.

Experts encourage motorcycle safety ahead of summer

For many people in California, the excitement that comes with riding a motorcycle is amplified by the adrenaline rush and unknown adventures that lie ahead. Because motorcycles are not as well-protected as other forms of transportation, it is imperative that people pay close attention to their surroundings and take adequate measures to protect themselves while riding.
