Products Liability or Defective Products
Manufacturers, distributors, retail sellers or anyone in the supply-chain of a product may be liable for injuries caused by a defective product. Most of us have seen or heard media stories about well-known and widespread defective product cases such as asbestos exposure causing mesothelioma or cigarettes causing cancer. However, many product defect cases are not well known, less obvious but equally defective and dangerous. For instance, a bottle cap could fly off unexpectedly, causing severe eye injury. A refrigerator may cause a fire resulting in injury or death. A piece of furniture may be designed poorly, causing it to tip over easily and crush a child. The list of defective products that cause injury is nearly endless. Tires explode, brakes, airbags, and seat belts fail, equipment guards fail, electrical equipment starts fires, smoke detectors fail, medical devices fail, and the list goes on and on. Any of these situations may provide a legal right for a victim to recover. If you or a loved one suffered an injury due to a product that could be defective, you should preserve whatever evidence is available relating to the product in a safe place if possible, and then speak with an experienced lawyer as soon as possible.
A product may be “defective” due to improper manufacturing, flawed design or inadequate warnings. All can lead to potential injury. These cases typically require retained safety and engineering experts to render opinions about the nature of a defect in a product. Product liability lawyers know how to handle these cases and have the expertise and money to advance these costs so that a recovery can be achieved for the victim.
