A defective product can cause personal injuries. Depending on the circumstances, the manufacturer may not be liable for the injury, but a plaintiff can make a claim. If a defective product has caused the accident, the manufacturer may be liable for the damages. As a result, you may be entitled to compensation for your injuries. If you’ve been injured by a defective product, call Dozier Law Firm for a consultation.
If you’re injured by a defective product, you’ll need to prove that the defect caused your injuries. For example, if an electric tea kettle has a hairline crack in the base, it may explode. Luckily, the victim didn’t burn himself. The same theory applies if you accidentally knock a hand-carved crystal vase over while cleaning it and it falls onto a soft rug. In this case, the vase survives the fall without being damaged. So, unless you were harmed, you can’t sue the manufacturer for damages.
Product liability is different from personal injury. There’s a standard of conduct that must be met by manufacturers. For example, a ferry captain must ferry passengers safely. Taxicab companies are required to inspect their vehicles for defects. You can’t sue for damages if you don’t suffer any injury. However, if a defective product causes a serious hazard, the company can be held responsible.
If you’ve been injured by a defective product, you can file a personal injury lawsuit. A product liability lawsuit can include the manufacturer, retailer, and/or designer of the product. This type of case is complex, and a skilled attorney can help you to win your case. A lawyer who specializes in this area of law can identify the responsible parties and investigate all of the relevant evidence. He can consult with world-class experts to prove your case.
In order to succeed in a product liability lawsuit, you must prove that the defective item caused your injury. In the case of the electric tea kettle, the owner must demonstrate that the malfunction caused the injury. In a similar case, the manufacturer may not be liable if the accident was not your fault. In these cases, the manufacturer of the product may be held responsible. A faulty electric tea kettle can also be dangerous.
In a product liability case, the manufacturer’s legal responsibility to repair or replace the product is important. This is why you can’t claim for a car accident if it was caused by a defective electric tea kettle. Moreover, if you’re injured by a faulty electrical tea kettle, you cannot be liable for the damage caused by the malfunctioning appliance. It is a good idea to hire a qualified lawyer.
