Dangerous and defective products cause countless injuries to consumers every year. Most products are not identified as dangerous until after an injury or death has occurred. If you or a loved one has been injured or killed as a result of a defective product, you may be able to seek monetary damages against the manufacturer and/or distributor of the product.
Defective products can come in any form; from common household goods and children’s toys, to chemicals, automobiles, construction equipment, medications and medical devices. Manufacturers and distributors of products have an obligation to ensure their products are reasonably safe for consumers. Product defects may be the result of a defective design that creates an unreasonable risk, a manufacturing flaw which renders a product more dangerous than intended, a failure to provide adequate labeling, warnings and instructions to consumers, or deceptive or false marketing relating to the product.
Defective products commonly result in serious injuries or death. Often the injuries inflicted by these products are not readily observable, and it may take time before the victim realizes that they have been injured by a product. Product liability claims are some of the most complex cases to present, and will often involve consulting with engineering experts or scientists to examine and test the product to determine if it is defective or unsafe, and medical experts who are able to relate the victim’s injuries to a specific product.
To present a product liability claim it is imperative that a thorough investigation be undertaken as soon as possible after the accident. The product must be preserved and tested by a qualified expert in order to establish the condition of the product and before the evidence is altered or deteriorates in any way. There are statutes which can forever bar your ability to bring a claim if suit is not filed within specific time frames. If you have been injured, or a loved one has been injured or killed due to a defective product, it is important for you to contact an attorney as soon as possible to protect your rights.
