HOW CAN I TELL IF I’M ENTITLED TO DAMAGES FROM A DEFECTIVE PRODUCT
If you or a loved one were injured by a defective product, you may be entitled to damages resulting from the injury because those involved in the production and sale of the product have a duty to make sure their products are safe for their customers. A number of individuals and companies can be held responsible for resulting damages. Some of the entities you may be able to pursue claims against include distributers, sellers, and manufacturers depending on the defect.
There are any number of defect types that could be grounds for a personal injury suit. This could include things like poor outcomes as a result of defective medical devices, illness as a result of food poisoning, or physical injuries like lost appendages or burns.
INJURIES ARISING FROM MANUFACTURER DEFECTS
One avenue that can be pursued for a personal injury case is against the manufacturer. Issues in manufacturing can be caused by problems during assembly. In these cases, businesses would rather put out potentially dangerous products than pay for more rigorous quality inspections.
Manufacturers are responsible for these issues under strict liability. This means that they’re responsible for any faults in the production of the product whether they did their best to prevent defects or not. In this case, you would need to prove that the defect that caused your injury existed when the product left the manufacturer.
CASES AND INJURIES FROM DESIGN DEFECTS
A case could also be pursued for a design defect in the product. In this case, there was a flaw in the design of the product that caused it to be dangerous. When pursuing a case for a design defect, you need to show that either the product design was dangerous from the outset, whether the company could anticipate that the design could be dangerous, or whether the manufacturer could have used a less dangerous design.
FAILURE TO WARN OF POTENTIAL PRODUCT DANGER
A defective product lawsuit can also be brought if there was a failure to warn of potential danger. Any entity from the manufacturer to the seller can be held liable if the proper warnings and instructions weren’t given when risk could’ve been anticipated. This is also the case if the warnings themselves weren’t delivered properly or weren’t thorough enough to properly reduce the customer’s risk.
