There are laws on the books that protect consumers against defective and unsafe products, but that does not stop these products from making them to market. Dangerous products are on every store shelf, every pharmacy shelf, every car dealership lot, and even in the supply cabinets of surgical suites across the country. And when a consumer becomes injured or dies from the use of a defective or unsafe product, the consumer (or their families) can bring a product liability claim against the responsible party. Product liability attorneys with the Dan Doyle Law Firm can help.
Consumers have an expectation that the products they purchase for themselves and their families, the cars they drive or ride in, the medicines they ingest, and the surgical products or medical devices they entrust their doctors to provide them or implant into them are safe. This is not always the case. If a person or entity releases a product that they know is unsafe or if they should have reasonably had knowledge that it was unsafe, they can be held accountable for ensuing damages resulting from the product’s use.
All products have the potential to become unsafe before reaching the consumers’ hands. Defects may include:
Unsafe products can lead to serious problems for people who end up with them. Consumers are many times left with devastating injuries that alter the course of their lives. The use of products that cause cancer, for example, can result in diminished life expectancy and reduced quality of life. Vehicles with acceleration problems can lead to dangerous accidents where drivers, occupants, and others on the roadway lose life and limb.
If you have been injured by a faulty or unsafe product, you are within your rights to seek damages for your injuries. This may include a mix of compensation for medical bills, lost income, and pain and suffering, among other damages.
