Poorly designed and defective products can cause serious injuries and death. These devices and products can include any number of consumer goods, from electronics and vehicles to children’s toys and clothing. Fortunately, no matter what type of product liability case you’re facing, there is an experienced attorney to help.
Generally speaking, companies that produce products for consumers have a duty to protect their consumers from harm. Historically, courts have held the belief that the manufacturers of these products have the knowledge and insight necessary to determine whether or not a product is safe for consumer use. This means that when a product or device harms a consumer, the manufacturer may be financially responsible for the consumer’s injuries.
Regardless of which type of defect is responsible for the injury, whether a design, manufacturing or marketing defect, a lawyer specializing in products liability can use their extensive knowledge of the law to investigate the claim and hold negligent parties accountable for their part in the loss. Whether the defective product is a pharmaceutical, automobile or medical device, experienced product liability attorneys have the knowledge necessary to take on large manufacturers and work to get you the compensation you need.
Products liability cases, like wrongful death cases, can impact every member of the family. Everything from lost wages and medical bills to pain and suffering and long-term disability should be compensated for. And that is why it is so important to work with an experienced and dedicated products liability attorney; one with the negotiation skills to work toward a settlement and the tenacity to take a case to trial if necessary.
