Defective Products cases involve an area of law known as Products Liability. Faulty products harm millions of people every year. These products involve everything from defective toys, medical devices, industrial machinery and car seat belts.
Products liability cases usually require preservation of the defective product. If you have been injured by a product make every effort to save it even if it has been damaged. The preservation of evidence is crucial to recovering damages in these cases and for that reason it is important to contact a lawyer as soon as possible who will be able secure ownership records and prevent the evidence from being "spoiled".
"Product Liability" involves the liability of a seller of any product which, because of a defect, causes personal injury to its purchaser, user or occasionally, bystanders. In product liability cases, the defendant /seller can be the manufacturer, distributor, retail store, or trade association. A person who has been injured as the result of a defective product has the right to be compensated for his/her injuries.
Products Liability cases may involve: dangerous toys, automobile design, sport utility vehicle rollovers, medical devices, gas tank explosions, seat belt failures, improperly designed consumer and household products, industrial machinery & equipment, farm machinery, tractors and equipment, products causing explosions and burns, and aviation products.
