Product Liability Injuries :
In today’s fast paced world, we use all sorts of mass-produced products in our everyday lives. Manufactures and corporations have an obligation to ensure the reliability and safety of their products, putting them through rigorous safety protocols. So when these products betray that obligation through defect and cause harm or injury, we believe the manufacturers should be held accountable.
Martinez Law, an experienced products liability firm, can help you understand your rights when you have been injured through the use of a defective product, through no fault of your own.
Product injuries often occur through design or manufacturing defect, when a person is using the product the manner that was intended. There are three main ways in which a product can be defective:
- Design defect: this occurs when a product was improperly designed and therefore dangerous from the start, no matter how it was used.
- Manufacturing defect: this arises when the product was built in some manner differently from the intended design. This could be anything from using sub-quality materials to a flaw in the manufacturing process causing a loss of product integrity.
- Failure to warn or instruct: if a product is inherently dangerous in its use, or has potential dangers relevant to its usage, then manufacturers are obligated to disclose these dangers. If they fail in properly warning or instructing of the risks, they may be considered liable.
Household appliances can often cause devastating burn injuries as well as severe property damage. Defective tires can result in loss of vehicle control and cause serious car accidents. Drugs that were not properly tested can cause catastrophic problems for people who take them. Children are particularly vulnerable to dangerous product related injuries, such as defective cribs.
Holding a corporations and manufacturers liable for their defective product can be a complicated and challenging process. Victims of product injury should seek the help from a skilled personal injury attorney with experience handling similar cases. Don’t let a corporation’s negligence go uncontested.
