Liability for Dangerous Products
Injuries from dangerous products can be devastating for you and your family. They can cost time away from work and financial hardships from medical bills that you never expected. You may be able to hold a third party responsible for your injuries, such as:
For most cases, if you used a product the way it was intended to be used, the product was not substantially altered from its original form (such as safety guards on a saw were still in place), and you suffered harm from the product, you can sue for damages. You do not even need to be the original owner of the product.
Types of Product Liability Cases
Dangerous and defective products can occur for several reasons. The design may be faulty. The product may not have undergone proper testing, or the manufacturing process may be producing a product that does not meet safety standards. The company may have failed to provide adequate warnings on the product or proper instructions for use.
Any product can be the basis for a product liability case if it caused severe injuries. These cases may stem from defective:
- Medical products
- Nursery products
- Playground equipment
For all product liability cases, it is necessary to keep the product in the condition it was in when you sustained your injury. You should also keep receipts for purchase of the product and records of any repairs that were made to the product. These will help our attorneys build your case.
