What is a Products Liability Claim?
Companies have a legal duty to sell products that are safe when used as directed. They also have a duty to inform the public of possible risks or limitations of a particular product to prevent injuries. When companies do not abide by these duties, people can get hurt.
Companies might be liable when a product malfunction and injuries result from any of the following:
- Defective design of a product, which can result in defects in all products that stem from that design
- Defective assembly of products using shoddy materials or procedures, which can mean some batches of a certain product are defective
- Failure to warn of inherent risks of a product
Product liability claims must prove that a manufacturer engaged in one of the above, and it led to injuries and losses. A successful claim can result in compensation for medical bills, lost income, permanent injuries, wrongful death, and more.
Almost any type of product has the potential to be defective, and you might not even think of the possibility of a malfunction until it is too late. Some products that regularly cause injuries include:
- Motor vehicles, including cars, trucks, motorcycles, boats, and scooters
- Recreational equipment and safety equipment for sports
- Products for infants and children, including furniture, clothing, and toys
- Electronics and electrical fixtures
- Large and small kitchen and household appliances
- Power tools
- Lawn equipment
- Medications and medical devices
There are many other types of common household products that can be defective and result in serious harm. Please note you must retain the salvage of the vehicle.
Many products are manufactured by large corporations with legal teams and insurers in place to fight risk and liability. For this reason, you need a law firm with the experience and resources to face off against companies and their teams. The right attorney will know how to prove a product was defective, as well as prove the amount of compensation that injured accident victims deserve.
