Harmed by a dangerous or defective product?

On Behalf of | Feb 13, 2024 | Products Liability |

We are creatures of habit. Our daily routines will often include the same tasks and the reliance on the same products and technology. Thus, we are not often thinking about the potential harms we could suffer by going through the motions of our daily routines.

Unfortunately, the products we use each day have the potential to cause serious and even fatal injuries. A dangerous or defective product may not seem obvious at first or even after several uses. Thus, it is important that consumers understand their rights and legal options when it comes to holding a negligent party liable for the harms suffered.

Dangerous and defective products

While no designer, manufacturer or company actively seeks to put dangerous or defective products in the stream of commerce, the attorneys at Freden Law Firm know firsthand that consumers do suffer significant harms due to a dangerous or defective product they used. Our law firm is well versed in product liability actions, allowing our attorneys to work diligently to protect the rights and interests of our clients.

A dangerous or defective product could occur for various reasons. Often, it is related to a defective in the products design, manufacturing or warning. A defective design is when a product is designed improperly, resulting in harms when used. A manufacturing defect occurs when a well-designed product was poorly manufactured. As a result, the product becomes unreasonably dangerous when used. Finally, a warning defect occurs when there is a failure to warn the consumer of situations the product is dangerous and is not anticipated by the consumer.

Products liability action

When consumers are injured or killed as the result of a dangerous or defective product, victims or their loved ones can file a products liability suit. This legal action seeks to prove the injuries or death were a result of a defect in the product. Depending on the type of defect, this could help hold a designer, manufacturer or retailer liable for the harms caused by the defect. Damages can be recovered in this civil suit. This can help address any losses and damages suffered because of the defective or dangerous product.

A products liability action can be overwhelming and complex. Thus, it is important to take the time to fully understand your situation. This can help you gain a better perspective of your options and the best steps to take when it comes to your legal rights and interests.
