Some products cause injury when they are used improperly or when users carelessly overlook the natural risks using such products may involve. However, some products harm victims because of defects, design flaws, or similar examples of negligence.
Victims may be eligible to recover compensation for such losses as their medical bills in these instances. If you believe you or a loved one were harmed in an accident when using a product because another party was negligent, review your case with a Chester County, PA product liability attorney at Dan Doyle Law Group to learn more about your legal options.
The liable parties responsible for compensating victims when products cause harm can vary depending on the circumstances. The following are several common examples:
Sometimes, products have inherent flaws that render them potentially unsafe even when used properly. In these instances, the negligent party is often determined to be the designers who overlooked these flaws.
A product may be designed for safety. Despite this, during the manufacturing process, defects might be overlooked. It is often the manufacturer of a product who is liable when said product causes harm as a result of these defects.
Again, some products naturally carry the risk of causing harm, particularly if they are not used as they should be. Thus, those responsible for designing the product’s packaging and marketing materials must ensure consumers are warned of any risks associated with using them and are provided with thorough and accurate safety instructions. Victims may be eligible to recover compensation when those marketing a product negligently fail to provide this information.
There are several reasons to review your case with a Chester County product liability lawyer. First, you need an expert to confirm your case is valid. The fact that you were injured when using a product does not always mean you have grounds to seek compensation by filing a claim or lawsuit.
For example, when you use a ladder, you should know there is a chance you will fall and injure yourself. If you’re harmed in a fall from a ladder, you may be able to recover compensation if it can be shown, for instance, that your fall occurred as a result of a defect. You can’t likely recover compensation if you fell merely because you tripped over your own clothing or were in some capacity distracted.
