When a consumer purchases a product they expect that the product will work well and function according to the description on the label.
Dangerous and defective products can cause physical injury that may have lifelong consequences.
An injured consumer needs to seek the advice of an attorney who will help file a defective product claim.
All products must include more than warning labels and instructions, and their performance must meet the consumers’ expectations.
When a product is defective or fails to work properly grave injuries could occur.
It isn’t uncommon for defective product injuries to affect a large group of people. When this happens the group can file a class action lawsuit.
If you’ve been injured or have suffered damage due to a defective product, contact an attorney as soon as possible.
The attorney will meet with you and provide you with a free consultation. During this time, he or she will assess your situation and determine whether or not you should file a separate claim or if you should join in a class action lawsuit.
Defective product claims are classified as product liability cases and are governed by state laws. Therefore it is important to hire an attorney who understands Tort law for your state.
However, even though the various intricacies of defective product claims are dependent upon state law, there are three elements that attorneys will look for to see if your case has a good chance of winning.
These three elements include defects in the product manufacturing, defects in the products design elements, and failure to warn the consumer of these possible defects.
