St. Peters' Auto Recall Attorney
It would be cheaper for manufacturers to produce their products without regard to the dangers or even deaths they cause. Product liability law makes them pay and motivates them to produce safer products.
They pay after people are injured by their products. If the costs are very high, they are motivated to pay closer attention to safety before they sell their products.
There have even been businesses that were aware of the dangers in their products who then made a conscious decision that it would be cheaper to simply pay a few parties after they are injured, than to correct the problem of manufacturing defects on the assembly line, with each unit manufactured. Very heavy "punitive" damages may be awarded against such defendants.
