Have you or a family member been injured by a defective product? Companies often produce dangerous and faulty products that can cause serious bodily injury or even death to innocent consumers. Product liability arises when a manufacturer places a dangerous and defective product on the market and use of this product causes injury or death to consumers. Everyday, innocent consumers use a variety of products such as automobiles, electronics, furniture and even medication and do not realize the harmful effects these products may have on consumers. If a company produced a dangerous or faulty product, the manufacturer assumes responsibility and is liable to the consumer for any injuries resulting from use of the faulty product. As a consumer, you have every right to expect that the products you purchase have been properly manufactured with the highest quality materials available. A manufacturer is expected to build products that function properly and effectively without any defects; but when manufacturers put defective products out in the market, the public has the right to recover for injuries resulting from use of their defective products. If you or a loved one has been injured by a defective product, you may be entitled to damages for lost wages, medical expenses and any scarring or disfigurement the accident has caused you.
