If you suffered an injury after using a consumer product, you might be eligible to file a product liability claim or lawsuit. To win compensation in these cases, you must show that the product was defective or unreasonably dangerous. The mere fact that an injury occurred while using the product is not enough to prevail in a claim or lawsuit.
Calling a law firm about product liability FAQs you might have can be one of the first steps to starting a personal injury case. A legal team may explore the facts behind your injury, connect that injury to a defective product, and seek out appropriate compensation for your injuries.
Product Manufacturers Have a Duty to Keep Their Products Safe for Consumers
Every maker of consumer products has a duty under the law to create objects that function as intended and do not place users at an unreasonable risk of harm. This applies to all sorts of products, such as household objects, motor vehicles, and medical devices. This also applies to even inherently dangerous objects, like firearms.
Product liability cases allege that a failure on the part of a manufacturer to keep consumers safe resulted in an injury. Usually, these cases claim that a defective design or manufacturing error caused the injury in question. The burden falls on injured people to prove that a defective design or manufacturing error was the source of the injury. Working with a legal team may help you to prove this concept.
