Cases Involving Defective Products

Each year, millions of people are being harmed by defective products. A defective product is a product that causes injury or harm to a person. 

A product may be considered to be defective for many different reasons such as design defect, failure to warn, failure to guard, unfit for intended use, defect in construction, or a defect in materials. 

With this, defective product claims can be based on negligence, strict liability, or breach of warranty of fitness depending on the jurisdiction within which the claim is based.

No matter how big or small, you must file your defective products claim and see what your legal rights are. Basically, liability and damages are two important elements in every defective products law case.

A liability involves demonstrating that the person being charged did bear responsibility for the injury. The damages, however, refer to the extent or amount of injury or loss that was suffered on account of the defendant’s actions or negligence.

Know what, defective product cases require extensive resources and experience. Expert witnesses can cost tens of thousands of dollars just for an initial evaluation. Not every lawyer has the resources or connections to utilize the top experts. 

In addition, product liability cases require originality, creativeness, fortitude and the resources to cover the high expenses involved. 

Representing injured parties is often expensive for attorneys because they put up large sums of money on these complex cases in order to hire experts, take depositions, gather evidence, and oppose the lawyers of large companies and insurance firms.

Upon winning the case, you are entitled to compensatory damages such as your medical bills incurred as a result of the product defect, reimbursement for any time lost from work, and property damaged as a result of the defective product. You are also entitled to damages for pain and suffering you experienced as a result of your injury. 

If you are married and the injury has affected the relationship with your spouse, you may be entitled to loss of consortium damages. Your spouse may also be able to recover these damages, even if he or she was not directly injured by the product.

Indeed, to avail the service of a competent counsel is the best way to protect your interests if you have been injured by a defective product. 

So, if you or your loved ones have been injured because of what you believe is a product defect, you should consult a defective product lawyer at the earliest opportunity to protect your right of recovery. 

Through an attorney, you’re assured that a thorough search will be performed to locate and then sue all the proper parties if a lawsuit seems justified.

Simply speaking, in every defective product claim, if it wasn’t your fault then someone must be held responsible, and if you’ve been injured then you may be able to recover compensation.
