Most of us purchase products from a retail store or an online store without giving a second thought to the manufacturing involved in the product. However, the world is a different place than it was just a few decades ago, and it is easier now more than ever to get products shipped to your doorstep within one hour of ordering. However, along with this heightened demand for consumer goods comes the rapid manufacturing process, which can easily lead to errors. If you or a loved one have been injured by a dangerous or defective product, you may be entitled to bring a claim for damages against the manufacturer or even the retailer.
Dangerous or defective products can impact many aspects of your daily life – from making breakfast, to driving to work, to printing out a document. The slightest product error can result in serious injuries to consumers and therefore need to be brought to the attention of the retailer and manufacturer. Product liability cases often turn on the overall use of the product. If you used the product in the manner it was intended to be used in, then the manufacturer or retailer should be held liable for a defect which occurred during the manufacturing process. However, a manufacturer may also be held liable for injuries if you or your child used a product in a way other than its intended use, and the product failed to contain a warning against this use.
Defective products can include a wide range of items that impact your daily lives, such as:
Even seemingly safe products can cause tremendous damage if they contain a latent defect. It is a terrifying thought for parents to purchase a seemingly safe toy for their children only to discover the toy was defectively manufactured, leading to tragic injuries.
After a dangerous or defective product injures yourself or your family, it is important to take steps to hold the manufacturer and retailer liable for their actions. A dangerous product should not remain on the market to further injure others.
The attorneys of Sadler and Sadler can assist you with your product liability claims by carefully examining your product, the manufacturing process, and consulting with expert witnesses who can testify as to the product’s dangerous or defective characteristics.
Your claim may include the following:
Our attorneys will walk you through the product liability process and offer you a free consultation to determine whether you have a product liability claim. The manufacturer or retailer may be held liable for the defect which caused injury based on their knowledge of the defect and their willingness to sell the product. However, the manufacturer may still be held responsible for any injuries even if they were unaware of the product defects, if it can be shown that they “should have known” there was an error in the product. Our attorneys will determine whether your defective product will fall within these guidelines.
