When we buy products or use products, we expect them to function properly and cause no bodily harm. This is the least one can hope for. Sadly, many products results in injury even if they are used properly and in accordance with the labels and instructions. When products like these result in injuries, it's important that our personal injury lawyers be contacted in order to pursue a product liability lawsuit against the negligent parties responsible for this dangerous product.
About Product Liability Lawsuits
Product liability lawsuits refer to cases brought against product manufacturers, designers, or distributors who put unsafe and/or untested products on the market that cause injury to consumers. These kinds of cases must be taken seriously in order to ensure that companies follow existing safety regulations and only create products that are safe and properly designed.
Product liability lawsuits cover a wide range of items. We'd like to take a few moments right now to consider the different kinds of products that have led to product liability lawsuits.
Defective Household Items
Stoves, ovens, refrigerators, toasters, microwaves, DVD or Blu-ray players, you name it. These are modern items found in many homes, and sometimes they are poorly designed and even dangerous. Such goods have been known to electrocute users, or even cause burns accidental fires. These kinds of safety hazards cannot be tolerated by the public.
Defective Automobiles and Auto Parts
People need their cars to get around, and it's important that the motor vehicles function properly and that the parts are all in good working order. Sometimes vehicles are poorly designed and the components may be substandard (e.g., faulty brake pads, shoddy tires, loose safety restraints, mistimed airbags). Our product liability attorneys want to ensure passengers are safe from their own vehicles.
Defective Pharmaceuticals and Dangerous Drugs
Medicine is supposed to promote wellness and good health. The drugs we take in are supposed to make us feel better. Sadly, sometimes big pharma is driven to make money as opposed to making people well. There are countless cases of medications and dietary supplements causing harm to people who take them. These companies should be ashamed of this kind of negligence and they need to be held accountable for causing this kind of harm.
Dangerous Food Products
Whether it's something pre-prepared that you buy from the store or a meal you order from a restaurant, there's a basic expectation that such foods items can be safely consumed. And yet there are countless cases of food poisoning, dangerous ingredients, and substandard cleanliness at various food vendors that can result in harm. We will hold these companies responsible since they have a duty to provide safe food.
