When you buy a product or pay for equipment to be installed, you expect it to work as intended. Unfortunately, there are many situations where a product does not work as expected, leading to serious injury or even death.
This may be caused by:
- Manufacturing defects, such as a faulty gas line on a grill that leads to an explosion;
- Design defects, like cars that could roll forward in neutral, leading to crushing;
- Improper labels, such as a cleaning product that does not warn consumers that using it under certain conditions could lead to dangerous gases building up.
If you have been injured by a defective product, you will need an experienced attorney to help you get compensation for your injuries. Manufacturers of these products are often major corporations, with their own team of attorneys and an insurance company footing the bill for legal defense costs. It takes a highly skilled attorney to handle these cases, putting together a team of experts to prove that a defective product caused your injury.
Types of Defective Product Cases
Throughout your life, you may come into contact with potentially dangerous products every single day. Infants and children could be injured by:
- Car Seats
- Electronic games
Adults could be injured by defective products ranging from appliances to cars, machinery and household goods. The potential for serious injury from defective products is so high that the federal government created the Consumer Product Safety Commission to reduce the risk of injuries and deaths caused by these products.
