Product liability cases, also referred to as defective product cases, involve failures in consumer products. Whether this involves a malfunction in a product or a defective manufacturing process, those responsible must be held accountable for releasing defective products to their consumer base.
From vehicle defects to medical devices and more, there are thousands of products recalled each year for defects. These can be defects found later – such as unexpected side effects from a drug or a dangerous design. Often times manufacturers are aware of the defects but choose to release the product(s) any way.
If you or a loved one was injured because of a defective product, then you may have a product liability case. You can make your claim against the manufacturer or other responsible parties and get a settlement you deserve.
Do not suffer with the medical bills and other financial struggles you may face because of a serious injury; instead, contact an attorney who can assist you with your case.
Recovering Compensation for Defective Products
It is required under law that product manufacturers thoroughly test and inspect their products to ensure they are safe for the public before selling them. Because of these laws, there are special liability rules that apply to manufacturers in these types of defect cases.
Under the “strict liability rules” you can file a personal lawsuit against the manufacturer if their dangerous product causes you injury or losses, provided you used the product as instructed and intended by the manufacturer. You do not have to prove negligence like in other types of personal injury cases.
You can also make other claims against the manufacturer, such as:
- A negligent design – the manufacturer knowingly released a product with a faulty design
- They breached their warranty – whether implied or written
- They did not warn you adequately about the risks or possible side effects from using their product
What Should I Do If I Have Been Injured by a Defective Product?
If you were injured by a defective product, you have the right to pursue a claim in your state or federal court. If there are others who have also been injured by the same defective product, then you may have a case for class action suits or multi-district litigations.
