When people buy a product, they expect to get what they pay for. Unfortunately, there are negligently designed and produced products, and if you own one, you may find yourself dealing with serious injuries because of it. Please read on and speak with our experienced Maryland product liability attorneys to learn more about how we can help you through the legal process going forward:
How do I recover compensation if I have been injured by a defective product?
If you have been injured due to a defective product and are looking to file a product liability lawsuit, you will first have to hire an experienced attorney who knows the ins and outs of the claims process. Your attorney will determine the party liable for your injuries, and from here, will begin collecting evidence so he can prove that you were, in fact, injured due to another party’s negligence. There is a statute of limitations for personal injury claims, so it is always best that you do not put off filing–the sooner you file, the better. If you wait too long to file, you will eventually be barred from suing. Do not let this happen. Our firm is here to help you file your product liability lawsuit so you can recover the financial compensation you need.
What are the different kinds of product liability lawsuits?
There are three primary types of product liability lawsuits. They are as follows:
- Failure to warn: Before a product hits store shelves, it must come with all the necessary warnings and instructions on how to use the product properly. For example, although a snowblower is a safe and efficient tool, it can quickly become very dangerous without proper warnings and instructions.
- Negligent product design: You may also file a lawsuit against a product designer if you believe the product’s negligent design caused your injuries. However, to win this lawsuit, you and your attorney will have to prove that there is a safer, more economical design that would not decrease the product’s efficiency.
- Negligent product manufacturer: Though it may not sound like something that happens often, the truth is, it happens more often than we’d like to think. When a product is improperly manufactured, either intentionally or unintentionally, it can quickly become a serious safety hazard. When this happens, you will most likely be capable of suing the manufacturer for your injuries.
