Somerset County Product Liability Attorney
Representing clients injured by defective products
When we buy products, we hope that the company has taken the proper care and concern to ensure that they offer a quality and safe product to the masses. Buying cars, household products, and industrial products should come with the comfort of knowing that we are investing our money in a company that believes in excellence. When consumers buy an automobile or household product, they put the safety of themselves and their family in the hands of another, whether that be the company that manufactured or designed the product or the company that manufactured or designed a part of the product. When construction workers use safety equipment, they are even more dependent on the quality of the product they choose. Unfortunately, not all product manufacturers and designers meet the level of quality people deserve. Some companies cut corners to cut costs. When this happens, the consumer is at risk. If you were seriously hurt because of a product you used, you should consider your legal options. If you need to consult with an attorney with experience, contact Siragusa Law Firm.
Product liability defect cases
Product liability cases involve a range of defects or mistakes by the designer or the manufacturer. These cases have caused various injuries and even death. There are many different types of defects, including design defects, manufacturer defects, failure to warn, and more. It is important to consult with an effective attorney if injured because of a product. Do not throw away the defective product. It is important to prove your case and the product will help determine the validity of the lawsuit and can act as evidence if needs be.
Design defect product liability
Design defect cases are complicated. If you were injured by a product because of a designer’s negligence, you could be entitled to compensation. To recover damages for a design defect, you will need to prove that your injury was because of an avoidable mistake in the design process. If the product could have been designed in a safer, equally practical, and economically feasible manner and the designer decided against it, you may have a case. It takes an experienced attorney with connections to experts in the field to prove there were other options available to the designer.
Manufacturer defect product liability
Manufacturer defect cases are also complicated. In order to make a case for manufacturer defect product liability, you and your attorney will have to prove that the original design of a product was sound and the manufacturer deviated from said design, making the product dangerous. In these cases, the manufacturer did not follow the tested blue print of the product’s design and you were injured because of it. If you can prove manufacturer defect, you may be able to recover damages.
Failure to warn product liability
In some cases, the manufacturing and design of a product are perfectly adequate. The product functions as it should and when properly used, the customer is safe. Even the safest of products come with danger and most companies will provide warnings. For example, a microwave is a perfectly safe. On the warning label, it should state that use of metal with a microwave is dangerous and can lead to injury. If a product does not come with the proper warning and you are injured, you may be entitled to compensation to help you recover financially from the impact of your serious injury. These cases are complicated. Just because one person is hurt because of a problem, doesn’t mean it needs to be on the warning label. It is important to discuss this with an attorney.
