Defective and Dangerous Products
Product Liability Law- Injuries Resulting from Dangerous or Defective Products
Every year, thousands of people are injured or killed by defective and dangerous products ranging from automobiles, dangerous toys, household appliances, industrial equipment, drugs and medical devices.
Most people assume that everyday consumer goods, ranging from cars, drugs, appliances, and toys, to tools and other common household products, are carefully tested and approved by the manufacturer and government. However, design problems, insufficient warnings, and manufacturing defects can make ordinarily safe items dangerous and sometimes, deadly. Those injured or killed by defective products may be able to hold the maker responsible under the law. This area of law is commonly referred to as “Product Liability Law” or “Products Liability Law.”
When a manufacturer fails to use the care necessary to provide a product that is reasonably safe, oftentimes the result is life-long catastrophic injuries for the unsuspecting user. If you’ve been injured by a defective or dangerous product, filing a lawsuit against the negligent party may not only benefit and protect you, but also force the manufacturer to design a safer product so that others can be spared from suffering similar injuries.
