Did a Defective Product Lead to the Injury of You or Someone You Love?
Product Liability Lawyer on What to Do If You Were Injured Due to a Manufacturing or Design Defect
When companies take our hard-earned money in exchange for a product, it is with the understanding that as long as we use the product properly, we will be safe. That is one of the main reasons product defect injuries are completely unacceptable. You do everything right, and because a product designer, manufacturer or retailer misinforms you and/or cuts corners to make a profit, you or someone you love is left to suffer.
People should never suffer lifelong injuries or lose their lives because a product was poorly designed or manufactured. Unfortunately, we do not live in a world where things that should not happen do not happen.
Product liability lawyer Mike Love has firsthand experience with the dangers awaiting consumers who are just looking to provide for their families. When Mike was researching car seats to purchase prior to the birth of his son, he could hardly believe how difficult it was just to find a car seat on the market that was actually safe. First of all, there should never be a question concerning the safety of a product meant for children. Secondly, if a defective product attorney has trouble finding safe consumer goods, what chance do the rest of us have?
What Is Product Liability?
Product liability is when manufacturers and/or retailers are responsible to consumers when they make and sell a product that harms a person or causes property damage. Examples of common products that can be defective include:
- Faulty or poorly-made auto parts, including: vehicle ignition systems, fuel systems, accelerators, airbags, seatbelts, tires, brakes and child seats
- Hazardous toys
- Defective medical devices
- Dangerous prescription or over-the-counter drugs
- Unsafe household goods and appliances
What Are the Different Types of Product Defects?
Product liability can stem from a number of causes, including:
- Marketing Defect – This involves not providing correct instructions on how to use a product properly and safely, failing to warn consumers to the risks of using a product or not alerting consumers about the potential dangers associated with a product.
- Design Defect – This involves a problem with the design of a product that makes it dangerous even if it is used properly.
- Manufacturing Defect – This can happen when a product is not manufactured the way its designers intended and is dangerous to consumers as a result.
Why Should Defective Product Victims Speak to a Product Liability Lawyer?
Product liability victims should not try to take on large corporations and their legal departments on their own. Losing just one product liability case could be disastrous for a company due to the additional lawsuits and recalls that the company could face as a result of an unfavorable verdict or settlement. Therefore, these companies will commit countless resources to discrediting product defect victims and their claims.
