Product Liability Cases
Product liability injuries (i.e., defective products and product recalls) cover a broad range of cases touching all types of consumer goods. Typical defective products include pharmaceuticals and drugs, automobiles, tires, medical devices, children’s toys, home appliances, furniture, firearms, tools, sporting goods equipment, supplies, and much more.
Product liability cases can become extremely complicated because of each unique product injury scenario. Thus, it’s important you seek the guidance of an experienced personal injury attorney if you’ve been injured due to a faulty product. You need a lawyer who understands the intricacies of product liability law, and who is willing to take your case to trial if needed.
What are My Consumer Rights?
It’s the responsibility of product manufacturers to design and deliver safe products that work as advertised. The products you purchase should be safe for intended use. Unfortunately, many manufacturers put more emphasis on profit, rather than the safety of its products.
If you are injured while using a faulty or defective product, you have the right to file a claim against the company that manufactured or distributed the product. You can recover compensation for injuries caused by dangerous or defective products.
