Products are meant to be used safely by consumers. When you buy a product, you have certain rights – the most basic of which being the right to be safe while using the product. There are many regulations in place to protect consumers from defective and dangerous products. Frequently, these products aren’t investigated until a significant number of people have been injured.
Products liability is an area of personal injury law that deals with injuries sustained by the use of dangerous or defective products. Manufacturers, distributors and resellers have a responsibility to deliver products free from defect and to make good faith efforts to assume that responsibility.
When a company fails in its obligation to manufacture safe products to the consumer, harm and injury can be caused. Were you or a family member injured by an unsafe or defective product? If so, you may be eligible for compensation.
