Who's Responsible for Defective Products?
Products liability is the area of law that requires designers, manufacturers and suppliers to pay for injuries to consumers caused by defects and hazards in the products they market. The purpose of products liability law is to ensure that the costs of injuries resulting from defective products are borne by the parties who place such defective products on the market.
What to Do If You Have Been Injured by a Defective Product
If you or someone close to you has been injured by a defective product, you should keep the product and any packaging, instructions, and labels. These items are important in proving your case.
If you have been injured by a defective product you may be entitled to payment of your medical expenses, lost wages and lost earnings, lost earning capacity, pain and suffering and loss of enjoyment of your way of life. You should contact an experienced lawyer to assist in obtaining the compensation to which you are entitled.
