Buying a new product shouldn’t have to be accompanied by weighing the potential injury risks it may pose to you and your family. Unfortunately, far too many of the products available to consumers today carry significant safety hazards, causing unsuspecting people to suffer from debilitating injuries and illnesses. In fact, consumers who have suffered harm as a result of a product they purchased frequently have to deal with a range of consequences, from the costs of medical treatment and lost income to, in the worst of circumstances, life-threatening physical trauma.
In light of the serious challenges that the victims of dangerous or defective products often face, product liability laws allow consumers to hold the manufacturers and/or distributors of these products accountable for their negligence in producing an unsafe product and the harm it causes victims. For people who have suffered unduly as a result of a defective product, these laws can provide a much-needed opportunity to get justice and financial compensation.
PRODUCT LIABILITY LAWSUITS
The impact that a dangerous or defective product can have on a person’s life can be devastating. However, a product liability claim can help to alleviate some of the challenges that victims may be facing.
Some of the most common types of product liability claims that people pursue include:
- Defective household appliances
- Toxic Food Products and Containers
- Dangerous Childcare Products and Toys
- Defective Vehicles
- Manufacturing Defects
- Design Defects
- Defective Implants, such as defective hips or knees
Though filing a product liability claim for these or other issues does not guarantee compensation from the manufacturer, distributor, or producer, having a lawyer’s help can provide a victim with an advantage in this situation.
