There are millions of new products and devices hitting the markets on a daily basis. New advances in technology, science, and manufacturing have made many consumers’ lives easier with products that are designed for either pleasure or efficiency. As consumers, we expect the products we purchase and use to be safe. We believe that the products available on the market have been rigorously tested, and that anything we purchase and use in the home, outdoors, or at work will not pose a serious hazard to our health. However, some manufacturers are more concerned with profit than with the construction of safe products. If you’ve been injured by a purchased product, you may be entitled to compensation.
Do You Have a Case?
Winning a product liability case can be tricky, which is why it is so important for our clients to be armed with knowledge and understanding of certain product liability laws. To begin with, there is a statute of limitations on every type of product liability case that can be brought to the attention of the judicial system. This statute of limitations is a time limit. If you make a claim too long after a product has been purchased and injuries sustained, it can be impossible to seek compensation. Act quickly to avoid being left helpless by statute of limitation laws in your state.
Many consumers who purchase defective products wonder if they even have a case for product liability. To help you decide, we’ve come up with a quick list that you can consult. If you answer “yes” to these questions, you may be entitled to compensation from the manufacturer. Don’t disregard your claim, however, based solely on your answers to these questions. An attorney can help you examine the product, your injuries, and your case as a whole to help you decide with certainty if you are entitled to a reward.
- Was the product you purchased designed with a defect that makes the product as a whole dangerous or unsafe for general use? It’s important to distinguish between manufacturing errors and design errors when pursuing a product liability case. Design errors are errors that have nothing to do with assembly or manufacture of the product.
- Was the product you purchased designed well, but made unsafe because of a problem with manufacture and assembly of the product? This means that the product itself, if designed correctly, would not present any health hazards, but because of faulty manufacturing the product is now dangerous.
- Did the instructions or warnings that came with the product fail to inform you of all the hazards associated with the product? Were the instructions unclear or hard to decipher? Did the problem with instructions lead to a natural and accidental misuse of the product?
- Did the defect in design, manufacturing, or instruction of the product specifically cause your damages?
Answering “yes” to any of these questions may be an indicator that you have a solid case for product liability damages. Consult an attorney at Brent W. Caldwell Law Offices for help in pursuing your case.
Hiring an Attorney to Protect Your Rights
If you’ve purchased a defective product that caused you personal injury or affected your health in any negative way, you may be entitled to compensation. However, tackling the manufacturer of such a product on your own is almost impossible. Large manufacturers of widespread products surround themselves with liability agents and resources that make litigation very difficult. This is why it is so important for you to find an attorney who is willing to handle your case as closely and as thoroughly as possible. At the Law Offices of Brent W.
