When a consumer purchases a product, they assume that as long as it is used properly, it is safe. The public assumes that companies make sure all products are safe for use before they hit the shelves of a store. In cases where a company is negligent and a product is defective, consumers can become seriously injured and suffer life-long impacts. It is important for injured consumers to hold companies accountable for their negligence when a defective product gets into the hands of a consumer.
There are three categories of product defects that may have to be explored when an individual decides to bring a lawsuit to hold the company accountable. A team of experts will have to assess the product and all stages of the product’s creation to determine how it became defective and ultimately caused the individual to become injured. The plaintiff will explore whether there was a design defect, a manufacturer defect, or if it was a case of failure to warn about the dangers of the product.
The victim of the defect will be responsible for proving to the court that there was negligence and that this negligence caused the injury. If you have been injured by a defetive product, contact our firm today.
