How can a product be liable for an injury?

Consumers are constantly buying items to meet their needs. These products can be for everyday use or for pleasure. When consumers spend their hard-earned money on these items, they expect a certain standard that the product should meet. However, sometimes products can prove to be defective due to a manufacturing mistake. These items can range from a child’s toy to a vacuum or household appliances. When using these products, individuals may become injured due to the defect that has been made while manufacturing the product. If you or a loved one has been injured due to a defective product, you may be able to seek product liability. Product liability cases put the blame on the manufacturing company that created the product due to their error that caused your injury. These cases can lead to compensation for your injuries.

What products can be liable for these cases?

Product liability cases can cover a range of products that individuals would buy. Some cases have included children’s toys and household appliances that resulted in burn injuries. Other cases involved people suing tire manufacturers due to blowout tires or tread separations, which have the ability to cause someone to lose control of a vehicle and become harmed in an accident. Prescription drugs have also been named in product liability cases.

How can I seek compensation for this?

When you experience an accident that is due to a defective product, you can file a lawsuit. Depending on the situation, you may file an individual lawsuit or a class action lawsuit. Each lawsuit has different guidelines. An attorney can best guide you toward the right action. An individual lawsuit can help you gain economic damages for your injuries. This can cover the cost of your medical bills, lost wages or lost future wages.

What is a class action lawsuit?

A class action lawsuit may be worth seeking in some cases. For these lawsuits, you can include multiple parties in the lawsuit. This can help lower the cost of legal fees. If filing a lawsuit seems to cost more than the benefits, a class action may help diminish the cost. It may also prove to be less time-consuming depending on the case. By bringing together a group of people in a similar situation with the manufacturer, you can all take part in the action. This route may prove to be more efficient due to the numerous parties involved to assist in the process.
