Injured by a defective product? What you need to know

Readers of this blog may be somewhat familiar with the concept of product liability. You may know that if a product is defective or causes serious damage or injuries, the manufacturer can potentially be held liable. However, while this may be true, it can also oversimplify product liability claims.

In reality, these types of claims can be very complex. Building a case is not as easy as saying a product caused you or a loved one to be hurt, which is why it can be crucial to have legal support in the event that you have in fact been injured or lost a loved one due to a defective product.

To begin with, a product is not defective just because it causes an injury or doesn't work properly. For it to be defective, the product must be flawed in some way. It could be that it was improperly designed, assembled or sold and poses a threat to consumers.

For example, let's say someone buys a glass coffee pot. If that pot is dropped on the ground, breaks and the glass cuts a person's foot, it may not be grounds for a lawsuit. However, if the glass pot breaks once it gets hot and a person is cut or burned, he or she may be able to argue that the product, which is intended to hold very hot liquids, was defective.

If the defect is established, there are still legal hurdles to clear. The appropriate party must be named, which could be the manufacturer, designer or seller of the product. From there, a person will need to tie the defect to the injuries and calculate the damages that have been suffered as a result of those injuries.

These cases can seem fairly straightforward on the surface, but the truth is that they can be much more complex than people think. Having an attorney represent you if you wish to file a product liability claim can prove to be a wise decision.
