As consumers, we are constantly buying new products. Whether it’s the newest gadget or a toy for a child, there is always something on the market that looks appealing. While we use our own hard-earned money to pay for these items, sometimes they are not as perfect as we expect them to be. Companies that manufacture these products are expected to produce a good product. The design, manufacturing and marketing of their product are done with a particular amount of care to encourage people to buy it. However, as we know all too well, people make mistakes. Products may not be as flawless as we expect. Unfortunately, this can lead to accidents where we are harmed at the liability of the product. Exposure to a defective product can cause serious injuries. If you or a loved one has been a victim of this, seek professional help to present your case.
When involved in accidents regarding product liability, you can file a lawsuit. Based on the situation, you can file an individual lawsuit or a class action lawsuit. A class action is when a lawsuit is brought by one person or the collective action of a few people on behalf of a larger group. Since an individual’s loss may be minor in these cases, it may become too expensive for them to bring an individual lawsuit into action. By bringing together a group of people who have been affected, they can all take part in the action, which will help lower the legal cost and prove to be more efficient.
What are some examples of product liability cases?
Product liability cases can cover a wide range of products that are involved in causing harm to an individual. Some cases have included children’s toys and household appliances that resulted in burn injuries. Other cases involved people suing tire manufacturers over blowout tires or tread separations, which has the ability to cause someone to lose control of a vehicle. Prescription drugs have also been named in product liability cases.
