Manufacturers create the products that we use on a daily basis. We appreciate the important work they do, but we also expect them to take their job seriously. Products can harm people if they aren’t made well, properly labeled, or marketed to the wrong age group.
Negligent manufacturers must be held accountable when their products are defective and cause harm. If you don’t hold them accountable, these dangerous products can continue to harm more people.
Filing a product liability claim against the manufacturing company that created an unsafe product is important. We must keep manufacturing companies honest.
Types of Defective Products
Any product has the potential to be defective and cause you injury. For example, if you purchase a hair dryer that is poorly made and catches fire while you’re using it, you could sue the manufacturer of the product for the burn injuries you sustained.
There are many ways you can be hurt by defective products, including poor labeling, creation, design, and even marketing. If a product is marketed to the wrong age group, this could cause injuries and lead to lawsuits. For instance, a toy that was designed with small parts being marketed to a child younger than three could be a choking hazard.
Examples of products that often lead to injuries for consumers include the following:
- Auto Parts
- Equipment And Appliances
- Children’s Toys
- Safety Equipment
- Household Products
- Cleaning Products
How to Hold a Manufacturer Liable
The only way to hold a manufacturer liable for your injuries is to file an injury case against them. You will need to gather evidence of how the product injured you, show how it was defective (i.e. wrongly marketed, poorly designed, improperly labeled), and show how serious your injuries were.
In most cases, you should contact a product liability attorney to help you with your case. Your attorney will assist in the investigation of the dangerous product, putting together your case, and handling insurance companies. The insurer will be the one to pay out on a product liability case, unless you take your case to court.
Additionally, your lawyer will gather proof of your damages so you can receive a fair settlement for your experience. The following are some of the types of damages you can receive when you win a product liability case:
- Medical Care Costs
- Lost Wages And Loss Of Future Wages
- Pain And Suffering
- Mental Trauma And Treatment
- Physical Therapy Costs
- Permanent Injury
- Scarring Or Disfigurement
- Lost Life Enjoyment
