Protecting Your Family From Unsafe Products
When you buy something, you assume that it has been designed and manufactured for safe use. Unfortunately, dangerous and defective products injure or kill thousands of people every year.
Many dangerous products are made by large corporations who value their profits over the safety of their customers. In many cases, these products could be made safer for just a few cents or dollars more; instead, a company chooses to save a few pennies per product to add millions to its bottom line. Fortunately, there are laws to protect consumers when tragedy strikes; however, enforcement of these laws is often complex. That is why you need experienced products liability lawyers on your side.
Holding The Responsible Party Accountable
It is the responsibility of the product’s manufacturer and retailer to ensure the items they sell are safe for consumer use. This responsibility extends to both domestic and foreign manufacturers.
Manufacturers also have a responsibility to protect consumers from possible harm during the product’s use. This means that the manufacturer must test the product and make any necessary alterations prior to release into the marketplace.
Some examples of products liability cases include:
- Car or truck defects
- Boat explosions
- Household items
- Prescription drugs
- Medical devices
- Defective helmets
Proving A Product’s Danger
A products liability claim can be successful when there is proof that a defective and unreasonably dangerous product harmed a user when used in its intended manner.
A product may be considered unsafe if:
- A manufacturing defect is present
- Inadequate instructions or warnings do not allow for safe use of the product
- The design is unsafe or defective
If you are injured by a product, the skilled personal injury team at Sullivan Law can evaluate the situation to determine whether you can file a products liability lawsuit.
