All too often, individuals are injured or killed by defective products. These injuries generally result from one of three causes: defective design, manufacturing error, or a failure to warn the consumer about possible harm. A product liability claim may compensate you for personal injury or wrongful death caused by a defective product.
When a consumer sustains an injury due to a defective product, a number of parties can be held liable for releasing a product that they knew or should have known posed a risk to users. The jurisdiction in which the product liability case is filed will determine the liability of those involved in the chain of commerce as the defective product passes from the manufacturer to the consumer. A person or company can be held liable for a number of products ranging from faulty medical devices to foods that cause food poisoning.
If you or someone you know has been injured by a defective product, you may be entitled to compensation. To learn more about how our attorneys may be able to assist you, please fill out our free, no-obligation case review form today.
