Unsafe or defective products cause thousands of injuries across the country each year. Manufacturers and sellers are responsible for ensuring the safety of consumers using their products, and must warn them of any possible dangers. Failing to meet this responsibility can lead to significant liability for the manufacturer.
Highways are typically an unsafe location for pedestrians as they are exposed to danger from cars traveling at high rates of speed. However, there are times when it is necessary for a pedestrian to be on or near a highway. At such times, it is important for the pedestrian and any drivers within the vicinity to take care in their actions to avoid colliding with each other.
