When you purchase a product, you should be able to trust that the product is safe for its intended use. Unfortunately, millions of people in the United States suffer injuries each year due to defective or dangerous products. If a manufacturer acts in a negligent manner and sells products with potential defects, that company should be held responsible for any injuries suffered in relation to the product. If you have suffered injury due to a defective product, an experienced Orange County product liability lawyer at Jamal Injury Law can offer you a free case evaluation to determine whether the facts surrounding your injury are sufficient to establish a claim.
Injuries Caused by ProductsThe Consumer Products Safety Commission (CPSC) is the federal agency charged with regulating product safety in the United States. The CPSC gathers reports on product-related accidents and injuries and, if necessary, will recommend a safety recall of potentially dangerous products. Despite the efforts of the CPSC, dangerous products remain for sale on a regular basis.
There are countless products for sale in the United States that have the potential to cause injuries due to hazards or defects. Some products that commonly cause injury and incite product liability cases include the following:
- Motor vehicles
- Sports equipment
- Medical devices
- Pharmaceutical drugs
- All-terrain vehicles
- Playground equipment
- Child and nursery products
- Power tools
- Amusement park rides and inflatables
- Pools and spas
- Other household items
The products identified above can cause very serious injuries if their use leads to an accident. For example, if the power steering or brake system on a car suddenly stops working due to a defect, the resulting accident may be devastating. Victims of product-related accidents often face costly medical bills, lost income from missed work, and many more losses.
Negligence in Product Liability CasesThere are three main ways a manufacturer may be negligent with its products:
- Defective design
- Defective manufacture or assembly
- Failing to adequately warn a consumer of the potential risks of using the product.
Determining whether a defect occurred due to the design process or during assembly can be complicated, and your case may require the use of experts to investigate and testify. The good news is that an experienced product liability attorney will have the tools and resources to properly handle this type of case.
