Dangerous or Defective Products

Thousands of people are seriously injured or killed every year by dangerous and defective products. Many of these injuries could have been avoided if appropriate safety and design measures were taken to ensure quality of these products. A defective product may include: dangerous toys, industrial machinery and equipment, improperly designed consumer products, automobiles and prescription drugs. When someone has been injured while using a product, even if human error is partially to blame, they may still be entitled to be compensated for their injuries. For example, a manufacturer must take into consideration normal human error. If an appliance or machine was not designed to function safely in the event of human error, the manufacturer may be found negligent. Also, if the product was not labeled with sufficient instructions or warnings about necessary precautions because the manufacturer failed to do so, again they may be found negligent. The law protects consumers and workers from these types of products by permitting them to sue manufacturers or other entities responsible for the defective machinery or appliance and recover monetary damages for their injuries.

  1. You hit the nail right on the head! However, victims defective products must remember that they must file for a claim as early and as quickly as possible. Clients who experienced serious injuries only have two years to file their case. If they do not make a move right away, and the injury becomes worse within the period of two years, then they’ll lose their right to file for a complaint. It will be really distressing if they miss this chance of getting a huge help from a skilled professional, so it is best to file a claim immediately.
