How can a product be liable in a lawsuit?
Consumers are constantly buying new items. Whether it is an everyday item that is a necessity or something to treat yourself with, products can be made with defects. When something goes wrong during the manufacturing process, a product may be made with a mistake. This means that the product may be potentially dangerous. When a defect is present, the product may not be able to carry out its original function or it may do so but have potentially harmful effects. If an individual is harmed due to a defective product, this can lead to a product liability case. You have the opportunity to file a lawsuit against the company that made the defective product. The possibilities are endless when it comes to what products can cause damage. A child’s toy can be made with a defect that harms them. In some cases, household appliances have caused accidents. These accidents can result in burn injuries to those using the product. 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. Product liability cases allow you to seek compensation for the injuries that you have sustained as the result of the mistake made when creating the product.
How can I seek compensation for this?
After experiencing an accident from a defective product, you may wish to file a lawsuit. Depending on the situation, a lawsuit may be better filed as a class action lawsuit. If you file an individual lawsuit, you may face more expenses due to legal fees and more. However, with a class action lawsuit, you can gather people who have been in the same situation as you. They may have also experienced an accident due to the harmful effects of a specific product. Both lawsuits may be able to aid you by compensation you for your injuries. This can cover the cost of your medical bills, lost wages or lost future wages. With compensation, you can cover any expenses that have been piling up due to the accident that occurred as a result of the defective product.
