Every year, defective products claim the lives of innocent people. Harmful products cause many serious and catastrophic injuries. The most tragic aspect of these injuries and deaths is that they could have easily been prevented.
Manufacturers and distributors should be held responsible for their wrongful conduct. You shouldn’t have to deal with a life-altering injury because of another’s negligence.
When you purchase a product, you have certain rights as a customer. At its most basic level, you have the right to be safe while using the product. Big-name companies have obligations to design and manufacture products to be safe and standardized. When these companies fail in this capacity, then you should enlist the aid of an experienced team of product liability lawyers.
Studies from 2016 show that 9% of all personal injury cases were product liability lawsuits. That may not appear like much, but it actually adds up to be quite a lot. This is especially true when you consider the fact that product liability cases make up the second-highest median damage awards compared to all types of personal injury claims.
Here are some of the common types of product liability cases that we settle:
- Dangerous Drugs: When you take a medication, you expect it to improve your ailments. Sometimes, however, drugs may actually create additional health problems, including those that are very serious and sometimes life-threatening.
- Defective Medical Devices: Medical devices, especially with technological advancements, are truly wonderful things. Of course, that is not always the case. Sometimes, a newly developed medical device is not always safe for the consumer to use—even after “rigorous” testing. The simple fact is that some of these devices will ultimately do more harm than good.
- Defective Car Parts: For example, motor vehicles, by and large, are designed to be safe. However, manufactures sometimes release vehicles before they are thoroughly tested, or use components known to fail at crucial moments. Careless design or defectively manufactured cars result in serious injuries or death. Proving the negligence of a manufacturing company is an arduous task, so you’re going to need an expert legal team behind you all the way.
If you or someone you know has been injured by a defective product, you may be entitled to compensation.
