Consumers place a great deal of trust in manufacturers. We use a countless number of individual products every day, and if any one of these is defective or unsafe it may cause injury or even death in some cases. As such, manufacturers have the legal obligation to ensure that their products are safe for consumers to use, and that they have proper instructions and warning labels. When a manufacturer's products are used properly, they should not result in injury to a consumer. Unfortunately, at times mistakes are made and a product is sold which is unsafe. It may be limited to one item or to an entire series of products, depending on the case.
In these situations those individuals who have been injured by defective or unsafe products have the right to take legal action against the responsible party, and the best way to go about this is to involve a competent product liability lawyer. An experienced attorney will understand how to file your claim and will understand what factors go into determining fault in civil suits regarding defective products. When all is said and done, a skilled attorney should be able to maximize the financial compensation you receive for medical care, lost wages, emotional trauma, and other damages.
Examples of Dangerous Products
There are many potential product defects that can lead to catastrophic injury or even death. When you come to us for a product liability claim, we will look into several different factors, including:
• Defective product design
• Defective product manufacturing
• Inadequate product labeling or instructions
• Company failure to warn of potential hazards
Any product can be defective. Automobiles, children's items, electrical appliances, pharmaceutical products and power tools can all pose a dangerous threat. It may be that only one part of a product is defective, and in products with several manufacturers, it is that specific part that will need to be focused on in your claim.
Whatever the case, we will help you determine where the fault lies and link your injuries to the defective product, establishing a strong case that can help prevent other people from being injured by the same product in the future.
