In this paper you will find problems posed by threatened lawsuits arising out of potential defects in passive restraint systems.
For many years, it was recognized that the manufacturer of an automobile was liable for defects in manufacture or design which produce injuries. Now the question is should part of the cost of claims and verdicts be shifted to the government-this might make the government more responsive to the feasibility of adopting particular safety systems.
