It is a quirk of the democratic legal systems that when product liability cases are settled in the courts, the settlements are often subject to confidentiality clauses or non disclosure agreements, leaving each owner to pursue their case at high expense and without knowledge of the other cases and the information presented to the courts in those cases.

A situation which it could be argued should change to prevent manufacturers hiding behind confidentiality clauses and reduce the burden on the courts.
