Dangerous Products Injury Attorney
Product safety is an essential feature of any product that hits the shelves. However, often products do not work as intended and this leads to injuries, sometimes even fatalities. A product can end up as dangerous if it features a design defect that is present in it from very early stages. A manufacturing defect can appear once the prototype enters the production stage. A marketing defect is one if the product is marketed to suppress risks or mislabel its performance and attributes.
Defective household appliances are a big risk for users. Thorough testing before releasing an appliance in the market and prompt recalls in case defects are reported are expected from manufacturers.
The most serious risk to the health and lives of users is from toxic food products and containers. Childcare products and toys are another category of products where laxity in maintaining safety can result in injuries. In recent times, apart from pharmaceutical companies, it is the carmakers who have been in the news for recalls and court cases over injuries and deaths.
In all these cases, it is important to ensure accountability and obtain justice for the affected parties.
Consumers must have the answers of certain basic questions, for example, it is important to understand the concept of product liability. Laws pertaining to product liability are usually derived from state laws governing breach of warranty, negligence, and similar issues. Product liability can extend to all those involved in the process that results in the sale and a consumer’s use of a given product. Hiring an attorney gives you the best shot at justice and compensation.
Experienced dangerous products injuries attorneys know how to prove that the injury suffered has been caused by the use of the item in question. They must also be able to show that the injured party used the product as directed and that the product did not carry adequate warning labels.
When companies fail to design and manufacture safe products that cause injury our lawyers step in. The failure to make safe products makes these products defective in nature. These products can injure, maim or kill ordinary consumers.

- The manufacturer of the product owed you a duty
